I just hit me, right now - it's October. October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.
Last year, I was still pregnant and anticipating the loss of our baby. I can't even begin to explain the feelings I had knowing that every year for the rest of my life there would be this month, that day commemorating our impending loss. Last year we recieved so much support during October, people from everywhere knew what was happening in our lives and wrapped their love around us.
I will be going out tonight to find a special candle, a special candle that I will light every night this month, but also a second candle that I will allow to burn all day on October 15th.
I can't believe its been nearly 10 months since we last saw our little man, our son. Now, 10 months later we have 2 more coming, 2 more little sons on the way.
This month, make a phone call, send a text, let those families with angel babies know that you are there and you are continuing to think of them and their babies. Let them know that you remember...
On October 15th, no matter what time zone you are in, light a candle at 7pm to remember those babies who we've lost. Those babies that will never be forgotten...
We love you Gabriel, and miss you every single day.
