Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is today, October 15th. In honor of this day, please light a candle at 7 p.m. for yourself or for others who may have experienced loss in this way.
My name is Samantha. In January 2006, we lost baby #1 to a miscarriage at around 9 weeks. In January 2008, we lost baby #2 to a miscarriage at around 7 weeks. There is not a day that goes by that I think about my children, how deeply missed they are and how I know I will one day be reunited with both of them and my family will finally feel full. I wonder daily what they would have looked like and how they would have touched my lives so. I walk this walk, not easily, but because I have faith and hope in a God who (thankfully) is so much bigger than I.
In honor of this day, I will be lighting 5 candles. Two for myself, three for others.
