Loss

Today is Infant and Pregnancy Loss Remembrance Day. I've known several women who've lost a baby in the womb or a newborn and I cannot even imagine the heartbreak, the devastation.

Sadly, I've known more women who've had abortions, and I know they also grieve. Privately. Let us not forget to make our world welcoming to all babies, wanted and unwanted. Let us light a candle for all our little angels.

Tonight.

I've never heard of this day...so thank you.

I have also known many women who have loved and lost their sweet little ones. I've known some, as you said so beautifully, who have also grieved after an abortion. Either way is heartbreaking.

As I said, thank you. I'll share this with some of my friends.

hugs,
Donna

Although I knew that October is Respect Life month, I didn't know that today is a special remembrance day. Our own Texasgirl from the Blueboard mentioned it.

My daughter said the most lovely prayer for all these little angels. Thank you for passing this on.
