A Day of Prayer and Remembrance

October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day 

If you are a regular reader, family member or friend you know I speak very openly about our losses and will continue to do so. 

In the process of grieving my losses, I have met many others who have experienced their own losses (miscarriages and infant losses). These women are some of the strongest women I have ever met.  I am so thankful for these "strangers" who supported me at my darkest moments, who encouraged me and give me hope.  These women prayed for me when I had no words to pray for myself.  

It is today that I not only pray for our lost sons, but also these ladies and their lost sons and/or daughters.  

“A wife who loses a husband is called a widow. A husband who loses a wife is called a widower. A child who loses his parents is called an orphan. There is no word for a parent who loses a child. That’s how awful the loss is.”

― Jay Neugeboren, An Orphan's Tale
