Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness day... Again.

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness day hits us once again.  I had planned to do a walk again this year, but opted not too. I didn't know why, I just didn't feel like it. Later I would discover why. 

At some point in the morning I heard that the Lowry Bridge in Minneapolis was getting lit up pink and blue for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness. Of course I knew I had to go and of course take photos. Clearly this was the reason I wasn't supposed to go to the walk this year. 

We participated in the Wave of Light movement again, this year instead of lighting a candle at our house, we opted to light one at the cemetery. We did that before I headed out to the bridge to take photos.  I was feeling strong all day, I've been pretty good all month, until we lit his candle.  Suddenly he tugged at my heart strings again. 

The 15th also means I'm 1/2 way through a photo challenge I am doing called "capture your grief".   It's a carlymarie project and I am loving it.  I'll post all the photos on the 31st and I also plan to make it into a photo book I can keep around the house.  It's been very therapeutic for me to do this month.  It's also been catching a lot of attention from my FB friends who are seeing our journey instead of just reading it.

  1. I saw your post on All that Love can Do on Facebook. Our son, Tommy, passed away from posterior urethral valves in-utero 16 years ago. I recently published a Bible study for parents who are continuing their pregnancy. I'd love for you to check it out. Thank you and Good bless you and your family.
