Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is to promote Support, Education and Awareness for grieving parents nationwide (and worldwide).
Too many families grieve in silence, sometimes never coming to terms with their loss. The goal is to help others relate to our loss, know what to say, do or not say, not do and to help families live with their loss, not “get over” their loss.
I have had two early pregnancy losses. July 2004 and September 2007.
Our little ones whisper, “Forget me not”, As their specialness wraps around our heart.
Their short little lives Hold meaning and love. Their spirits have touched us-each and everyone.
They have left their gifts For us to uncover, If we open our eyes, our hearts and our lives.
The road to discovery is hilly and dark. Will we long harbor the pain or set our wings for the light?
Our lives have been changed, our paths filled with sorrow.
Yet their memories embrace us and our love lasts forever.
If we open our hearts, their gifts shall unfold, as we forget them not.
