a candle

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, as proclaimed by Former President Ronald Reagan in 1988.

It  was officially recognized in the United States in 2006. October 15th of every year is National Pregnancy Loss and Remembrance Day, a special day to honor and acknowledge babies lost to miscarriage, stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy, prematurity complications, neonatal death, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome-SIDS, illness, accidents, and other tragic causes.

In addition to your own personal tributes, it is asked that you light a candle at 7pm on October 15th, so that a continuous light will shine around the world in remembrance of our precious babies, gone too soon.
