Somewhere between 15% to 25% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. It is something most people don't think about until it touches them personally. The truth is, it is a shockingly common experience. This painful loss is usually mourned in silence. October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day in the US and Canada. At 7pm on the 15th women all across the country will be lighting candles for an hour to remember babies lost to miscarriage or still birth.
Life moves on. There are new joys to celebrate. Still, I will never forget the babies I never got to meet. I will be lighting two candles tonight and saying a prayer for my "sisters" who are remembering their losses as well.
