Perhaps it is because so many people do not want to acknowledge life inside the womb that baby loss is just not talked about. I know until we lost our baby I had no idea how much grief was all around me because of the loss of a baby. Even though I believe everything happens for a reason, I still think that these are our babies and we knew them even if others didn't. It is important for us to remember and it is important for us to share what we are feeling in the way we feel comfortable. Parents dealing with baby loss are finally being acknowledged.
As I found on Mom4Life.com: October has been designated as "Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month", with October 15 as "Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day".
~waves~ Thank you, Heather!
And from her link to http://pregnancylossribbons.blogspot.com/:
Just a reminder that tomorrow, October 15, is designated as 'Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day'. I know WE do not need a special day to remember our babies but it is nice that it is there.
Tomorrow night there is a 'Wave of Light' to be held at 7pm- you are encouraged to light a candle and place it outside for at least an hour. In that way there will be a wave of light throughout the timezones as these candles help remember our children.
Also, tomorrow morning I will have a post here so we all can add our babies names. However did this blog get 90 followers? And yet I know that is the tip of the iceberg for grieving moms. ((HUGS)) to us all.
I hope today is gentle for you-
~waves~ Thank you, Emily!
I was hoping to write about my new creations, but I felt this was more important to post. If you have experienced a loss please add your babies name and anything else you would like to share in the comments section. As no words can console...
May the good Lord bless you and keep you...
