Light a Candle Tonight

Today, Holly and I placed pink and blue ribbons on all the grave sites in the Garden of Angels. We wanted to show our support and to let others know that October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. It's something we recently learned about and felt compelled to help spread the word.

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day is part of a month long Proclamation signed by Ronald Reagan in 1988. It's goal is to Support, Education and create Awareness for grieving parents worldwide. Too many families grieve in silence, sometimes never coming to terms with their loss. Our goal is to help others relate to our loss, know what to say, do or not say, not do and to help families live with their loss, not "get over" their loss.

So tonight at 7:00 pm, we invite you to light a candle for one hour in memory of Grace and all the other babies who left us far too soon in life. Thank you.
