Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.

So many women are sharing stories already – some for the first time.

And many are remembering their little ones whose lives lasted for such a short time. But whose memories fill up a lifetime. Here’s a few candles from last year’s Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.  Some were lit for Kyle. Some were lit for others. All were sent to me. And all of them were special.

In memory of Kyle and others

After my post yesterday, I heard of those who didn’t get the chance to memorialize their little ones.  I came up with this idea – maybe some of you would like to join in?

Today, if you have a photo and a memory or a candle and a memory, or just a memory, and you’d like to share it on my blog, please send it my way today! Send them to my email: kimzkitchen@gmail.com by 8 PM tonight and I’d be happy to share them on here for a little virtual memorial service.  That post will go live at 7 PM EST but will be updated throughout the evening until everyone’s photos and memories are posted.

And some of you have friends who have lost little ones. The best thing you can do for a grieving mother is to let her know that you remember. That someone else besides her remembers their very real life that grew for days, weeks, or months with her. So light a candle for her and for them. And send it my way. She’ll be honored that you remembered. I promise. I know.

I’ll look forward to hearing from you! God bless you all today.

Love,

About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!
