Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness day.
On this day, Families and Friends are lighting candles at 7pm. We are creating a wave of light around the world in rememberance of our babies and pregnancies that are no longer with us. Remembering the dreams that we once held for them and the love that we continue to hold close. Please if you know someone who has lost a baby or a pregnancy, please tell them that you thought of their baby and use the babys name if possible. You might see a tear, but don't be afraid, it will mean so much to hear that someone remembers.
My candle burns, it will stay burning here in Melbourne until 8.30pm when the wave of light reaches the next time zone in Adelaide.
Remembering baby Thomas
And all the babies from The Royal Childrens Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, including Mia, Jacob, Tyler, Samuel, Amelia and Josh
