October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. On this day 16 months ago we lost our baby girl-Hope. The months that followed her loss were some of the hardest of my life. Even when we were blessed with another pregnancy five months later, mixed emotions of happiness and fear made for a long emotional nine months. I am happy to say our third baby was born healthy-although those first few days were bittersweet-embracing our new baby and remembering the baby I never held. I miss her dearly. I long for the day I will see her again in heaven.
Please remember to think and pray for those that have lost babies during pregnancy and infancy. It is ok to talk with them about their babies months and years after their loss, it helps keep their babies memory alive and lets them know you care and recognize their baby.
