Lighting a candle

Today, October 15th, marks pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day. This is a day that I was not aware of a year ago, but now- it will always be a day I remember.

Today- like each and every day- I think of my perfect baby boy..whose nose was mine, lips like his father.. whose precious life stopped at just 21 weeks gestation. I will always remember you my dear son. I miss you more than words can say and wish more than anything in the world that you were with us today.

Today, like most days, I think too of the many mothers out there who have endured the loss of a pregnancy or infant. My heart goes out to each and every one of you.

So tonight, I light a candle in honor of our babies. May they never be forgotten.


  1. I am sorry for your loss. I have been struggling with recurring miscarriages. I didn't even know there was a Pregnancy and Infant Loss Rememberance Day. I feel awful that I missed it, but I am glad to know there is such a day. The loss of a baby is such an awful thing to deal with.

    I found your blog on the miscarriage and still birth directory. I hope you don't mind me poking around.

  2. Hi Emi- I am sorry that we have pregnancy loss in common. However, I am glad that you found me. I recently started to blog and just had it added to the directory in hopes of connecting with others who know what it's like.

    I am so sorry for your losses. Hang in there- you WILL have a baby to hold. Just yesterday I saw a friend who had four miscarriages in a row and now she has a baby who is a few months old.

    I will visit your blog. Thank you for reaching out.
