Light a candle ...

for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Remembrance Day

To anyone reading this today who has lost a precious baby I am sorry for your loss. I know words cannot ease your pain nothing ever will but I today I will light a candle in memory of our babies.

A quiet moment for lighting a candle in memory of your baby . . .

"Dear baby of mine, please see this light as a symbol of our never-ending love for you. Please understand that this love knows no limits or bounds; it conquers even the hold of death. Let this light shine in memory of our love for you, in celebration of the life we shared together, however brief, and in the hope that tomorrow will be a brighter day. We feel your spirit with us even now, gently guiding and strengthening us. With this light we will remember the true gifts of the season: memories of joys past, hope for present peace and love to last a lifetime. We will forever feel your presence and love you always."

Yesterday, I was speaking to casual acquaintance ( lady, 49) we were talking about her children.Then she told me she had a miscarriage about 29 years ago ~ a little boy @ 3 months.She commented how it broke her heart. I nodded I knew what she meant.

I share the grief.

I've lost a full term baby two days after birth, one just before she was born, and had 4 miscarriages. One of twins.

It changes life completely.

I didn't know it's a special day today.

Thanks for sharing!

I've had two miscarriages and lost a son at 10 months old. Not fun.

I'm sorry you have suffered a loss as well.

I won't be home at 7pm my time as I have an antomy and physiology test to take. Yes, I'm in college full time 20 some years after the first time I went to university.

I lost a baby almost 4 years ago and it still hurts to remember. Although it is almost 10 o'clock I'm going to light a candle.
