Virtual Pregnancy and Infant Loss Candlelight Vigil – October 15, 2021

October 15 @ 7:00 PM

Free

EMBRACE THE LIGHT

We invite you to join us for a Virtual – Candlelight Vigil to bring awareness for Pregnancy and Infant Loss, being held on Monday October 15, 2021.

People who have experienced any kind of child loss, whether it is through miscarriage, stillborn or infant loss, live through this loss daily, and once a year, people worldwide gather together to bring comfort to one another, share their experiences and provide support. This October 15th, be a part of the continuous wave of light that will be shining worldwide at 7pm.

October 15th is a day to remember our lost babies, those babies that we no longer have to hold in our aching arms. This is a day for anyone who is affected by any kind of child loss, to come together and acknowledge all of those babies, to say their names and tell their story if they wish. This is a time where we don’t have to grieve in silence or in darkness. We can say our babies’ names with a smile AND with a tear if needed. No matter what, it’s a time to remember that even the littlest of footprints leave big imprints in this world, regardless of how long they were here for.

Whether you are a parent, a grandparent, a sibling or relative, or even just a friend, we welcome all of you to join together to bring a little bit of light into an otherwise very dark world.

…they say it takes a village to raise a baby… it would stand true that it would take a village to grieve a baby who didn’t make it home…
