October 15

It's International Infant and Pregnancy Loss day today.

This year, a Wave of Light ceremony is planned across the globe. All you have to do is light a candle at 7pm in whatever time zone you find yourself, and leave it lit for an hour.

This is to commemorate and remember all those parents, mothers, grandparents, sisters, aunts, children who have lost a baby or a pregnancy for a multitude of reasons. And to remember those babies that have died.

My thoughts today are with each and every person who has gone through the pain of losing a pregnancy, losing a baby, losing that dream of a life with a brand new human being. The pain of losing a child stays with you forever, hidden away in your heart, the raw wound getting smaller with each passing year. Until one day you remember without the pain. Light a candle tonight at 7pm and remember.

In my heart, always, Sam.
