National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

There is no foot so small
It cannot leave an imprint
On this world

Today we remember all babies born sleeping, or whom we have carried but never met, or those we have held but could not take home, or the ones that came home but didn't stay.

Today, October 15, is national infant and pregnancy loss remembrance day.

If you or someone you know has lost a baby during pregnancy or infancy, light a candle in remembrance of this tiny life. This wave of light begins 7 p.m. in all times zones around the world.

*In memory of William George, born still April 1, 2009; beloved son of a dear online friend.

And in memory of all the other babies I have known who were born still.  I remember you and hold your families in my heart.
