Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month

The month of October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month and October 15th is officially recognized as Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day. (Click here to visit the official site.) This day is a day to honor those babies lost by miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, stillbirth, birth defects, SIDS, and other causes. On this day at 7 pm around the world, candles are lit to remember those babies who have been lost. I plan on participating and I hope you will too.

Kelly at The Beauty of Sufficient Grace wants to create a remembrance list to post on October 15th. To add your name to the list please visit this post and leave a comment. Feel free to also add your name to my Angel Friends list if you haven't done so already.

During the month of October, I am planning on having some giveaways for those mothers whose babies no longer reside here on earth. I am still unsure of how many I will be doing or when so keep your eyes open for those. I will tell you that I will be giving away at least one piece of jewelry from My Forever Child.

A song was recently released by Sidewalk Prophets called "The Words I Would Say". I am posting this acoustic version of it. I am sending this song out to all of my friends who have also faced living a life without their baby or babies. This song inspires me and I hope it does the same for you. From my lips to your heart. Each and every word. I love you all.

Thank you for this post. Where I live, they are doing a Walk to Remember. I would like to participate, I think. If I don't I will definitely be lighting a candle for Jenna, Carleigh and all our angel babies!

Love to the sky

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
