Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Instead of detailing the happenings of our family this last week, today is a day to honor the lives of babies who left us too soon and let their parents know we have not forgotten, and will not forget, their children.
Please consider lighting a candle at 7:00 PM local time for the babies you would like to remember.
I will be lighting candles for these angles.

Also, special thoughts to those who have silently, or otherwise, grieved the loss of a pregnancy.
* For a very short time, Owen had a nursery neighbor that we assume also passed away. We never met his family or got to know his name, but he was “big” (likely full term) and really, really cute and, like the other’s, we’ll always remember him.
Feel free to add any baby’s you’d like remembered in the comments.
