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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
