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.
