October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, a day to remember the babies lost to miscarriage, stillbirth, and neo-natal death. Please join us in lighting a candle at 7pm (in your time zone) to honor the memories of babies lost too soon. The idea is to create a wave of light to remember these lost children and provide support for those families who have suffered such losses. Tonight, we will be lighting a candle for our Lauren Joy, born still at 38 weeks, and for all the children lost and loved around the world.
I am a daughter and a sister, a wife and a friend. I am a reader and a writer, a dreamer and a realist, a teacher and a learner. I am the mother of a baby born sleeping. I am on a journey of healing, walking a path paved with tears and grief and hope.
