Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day

Today, October 15, is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day.

Please light a candle in memory of your own lost little ones, and/or in memory of those who have lost babies, either before birth or within the first year after birth.

I've lost two children to miscarriage, Noel (December 2006) and Chris (March 2009); I think about them every day.

  1. Maybe my two Angels and your two Angels get to play together in heaven. My first miscarriage still haunts me and I always think of what my two would be like and how different things would be. Little sweeties.

  2. Hugs to you (a few days late)...

    2 for me also...

    Duncan (on January 22, 2006 - on the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, I would have given everything I had to keep my baby safe and alive in my body)

    Zara (August 1, 2011 - two weeks before I left for Ukraine to adopt my sweet Henry)



Please be respectful and courteous, and I will reciprocate.
