Around the world, today is Infant and Pregnancy Loss Awareness Day. I guarantee you that, if you havent been personally touched by a loss, you know someone who has. Maybe they've never felt like they can talk to anyone about their baby... Let them know, perhaps with a card or a sweet word, that you are remembering their child today... That you are remembering them.

For the named and the nameless... The remembered and the forgotten... The loved and the forever missed... Tonight, at 7pm your local time, light a candle and let it burn for all those whose flame no longer burns in this world, but rather lights up the evening sky forever.

For Nicholas, Sophia, and Alexander...
For P, D, and Z...
And, for your babies...

I have 2 lit tonight. One for all the lost babies, and one for my friend Jessica's niece, Sarah. Sarah was born at 22 weeks and lived for 6 minutes, and in those 6 minutes she touched so many lives.

My heart is with you and Peter and all who have lost a child.

Much love!

I plan on lighting a candle tonight. I will say a prayer for all of your children. I have my post coming up at midnight to let as many people as possible know about lighting the candle. Your post is beautiful. God Bless.
