Yesterday was pregnancy and infant loss Remembrance Day. Having been so fortunate enough myself to have never had to go through something as devastating as losing a baby, I only know people that have experienced this themselves and I can only imagine the pain, suffering and heartbreak they feel. As a mother I can imagine it is something that never leaves you.
So in honour of all parents who have lost a baby by miscarriage, stillbirth or by other early death. I light this candle in memory of your precious babies, for every baby lost too soon, for your baby existed, mattered, is loved and for as long as you shall live will never be forgotten.
Not just today, but like every day I will be thinking of those with angel babies.
I light this candle for you.
