Light your candles tonight in memory of ALL babies gone too soon!!!




There are so many of us that have experienced the loss of a baby whether it was due to still born, miscarriage, or some other reason. On October 17th 2007 I should of had a beautiful addition to our family...but I lost it due to a miscarriage months before.

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is to promote Support, Education and Awareness for grieving parents worldwide.

Too many families grieve in silence, sometimes never coming to terms with their loss. Their goal is to help families live with their loss, not "get over" their loss.

Thanks for posting that! I lost a baby in April of 2000 to miscarriage..and it marked one of the saddest times in my life. Nice to know there is a day to remember the babies we never got to meet.

I didn't know about this. Although it was before we met, my wife had two miscarriages, and my oldest daughter lost one too.

A candle tonight, it is.
