October 15th

Today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.

In October 1988, President Ronald Reagan declared October as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month saying, "When a child loses his parent, they are called an orphan.  When a spouse loses her or his partner, they are called a widow or widower.  When parents lose their child, there isn't a word to describe them."

Tonight we light candles for all babies gone too soon from 7pm to 8pm.  Light a candle during that hour in your time zone and candles will burn in a wave around the world.  What an awesome picture!

I was planning on attending the M.E.N.D. breakfast and balloon release this morning to honor Lucas and Caleb.  But I have worked incredibly hard this week to get where I am at emotionally.  I am so afraid that going will really set me back quite a bit.  I feel my current position is fragile.  I will light their candle tonight and remember Lucas, Caleb, and all their heavenly friends throughout the day.  Oh how I miss my baby boys.

  1. Remembering Caleb & Lucas with you, today and everyday.

  2. That picture of you with your boys always touches me. I am thinking about you, Caleb, and Lucas <3 Big hugs!

  3. I missed seeing you this morning, but I understand. It was beautiful...a clear blue sky, but very emotional.
