Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day

An international wave of light campaign encourages everyone to light a candle every October 15th at 19:00 to stand together in remembrance of babies gone too soon and raise awareness about infant loss.



It is a day of remembrance for pregnancy, loss, and infant death which includes but is not limited to miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS, or the death of a newborn.

It is observed annually in the United States and Canada and, in recent years, in the United Kingdom.


 
In my window. Thinking of friends and family whose losses they have shared, and knowing so many more of you probably grieved alone.

I've adopted the same commenting policy as seen here at Off Beat Mama (http://offbeatmama.com/about/comments). I won't post comments if they strike me as attacking, judgmental, rude, or unproductive. In general if you are willing to put your name to something, I'll post it, but remember to keep your words sweet, because someday you may have to eat them.
