Today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness day. Ronald Regan put this day into place in 1988 to honor those children who have been lost, and to raise awareness. Please remember those who have lost a child. Each day 2000 people learn that their babies have died, each day many people hear those words, "I can't find a heartbeat". Each day some one's dreams and hopes shatter in an instant. Today, remember those people, and hold your little ones close because each life that makes it into a mother's arms or father's arms is a miracle, a true unequivocal miracle! Be grateful!

At 7:00pm around the world people will be lighting candles to honor their lost children. Please light one with them, or send them your support!

My sweet babies,

Today the world takes a pause to remember lives like yours, lives that came and went too soon. Lives that touched hearts, then broke hearts, then soared about and beyond what you could imagine. Each day my heart aches with the loss of you both, the dreams that went, the pain that set in, the hard lessons learned, the friendships grown, the friendships lost, the tears, the joys, the hope you both brought, and the road your lives have set me on!

Thank you for being my babies, however short the time, and for all that I've learned from your presence. You will always be my babies, and I will love you forever and ever. Nothing will change my love for you, and time and circumstances will never make me forget you!

Tonight I light a candles in your memory and the memory of those that I hope are your angel friends in heaven, too many to name, but you know them!

I love you forever and always, my babies you'll be!



  1. You are in my thoughts and prayers! I'll be lighting my candles tonight in 7:00 in honor of my babies and everyone else's.

  2. Loving you my sweet kindred spirit.


    ALWAYS remembering our sweet babies who were much too beautiful for this Earth. However, they now live in the most beautiful kingdom of all. And forever in our hearts.

  3. So beautiful sweet friend. As I sit here, looking at my 3 flickering candles and thinking about all 5 of our babies dancing my heart breaks (again and again). Love you!

  4. Keeping you in my prayers and lighting my candle tonight. ((HUGS))

  5. I light a candle with you - for your babies, and my 3 in heaven: Gracie, Aidan and Sarah Grace.

    The dearest part of my heart aches today.

    May our Lord comfort us continually and in new ways, in every way we can imagine, and most of all, in ways we cannot.
