Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. In October of 1988 Ronald Reagan proclaimed that October would be dedicated to Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance so that parents would not have top grieve alone. Robyn Bear created a great website http://www.october15th.com/ on this site you can find great information on support groups and even purchase items from their shop to remember your little one. Through her website Robyn has started a ceremony called “Waive of Light” For this you light a candle at 7 pm and let that burn for at least 1 HOUR. The idea is that it would create one continuous wave of light throughout the entire world. This is a great ceremony for anyone that has suffered any kind of infant or pregnancy loss and I think it can be very helpful to many who are remembering their losses and to help everyone know that they are not alone in this.
So at 7 pm tonight join me in lighting a candle and letting it burn for 1 hour.
