"There is no greater tragedy in life than the loss of a child. Unfortunately, because our babies live only within our wombs or they live outside of the womb for a short period of time, an uneducated society often minimizes the importance of their short lives and, in turn, our grief is trivialized.” Clair Baca
Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month (President Ronald Reagan proclaimed it) is in October and Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is on October 15th. We have succeeded in getting State Proclamations established in 47 States to date (October 11, 2001). First of all, just because we may have states that have not signed, does not mean that the Month of October and October 15th will not be recognized in these states. We are hoping to have October 15th observed all over the world, and we truly believe in our hearts that someday it will be.
Since Oct 1988, more than two million babies worldwide were born still. And countless others were lost to a variety of other devasting reasons. Please take a moment this October to think of all those babies who are so very loved and missed every single day.
Today I lit the candle above in honor or all the babies that have been lost but to the ones I know are...
To many babies conceived but gone to soon! Please be praying for their families today as we remember and honor these lil ones lives!
