As you know, October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. All across the world, people will be lighting candles at 7pm in their time zone so that a continuous wave of light will circle the globe in memory of our precious babies, gone too soon.

Sue - I truly appreciate your willingness to give to others. Thank you for providing us with new resources and blogs to visit. I feel a sense of comfort knowing that I am not alone - though I wish none of us had to go through a loss. I will be lighting a candle for Brendan tonight. He is my identical twin boy who was removed from life support 3 days after birth due to a grade 4 brain bleed and perforated lungs. His twin, Leo, is doing beautifully at 1.5 yrs old, especially for a 25 weeker. I will also light a candle for all my friends singleton and twin babies who have become angels. Big hugs to you Sue.

Sue, your work amazes me. I admire you and appreciate how you have helped us all remember our precious angels.

I have posted this on the three websites- what a great way for me to remeber my little ones.

I am posting this in memory of my oldest child, Christopher Michael Sanders, who died in April, 1975. Not a days goes by that I do not think of him. After his tragic death, we lost 5 other children,, one lived 20 minutes, one lived one hour, and three were stillborn. I am so thankful for our daughter, Allison, who turns 29 today. Goodbye my sweet babies, I hold you close to my heart.

Blessings,

Hi Sue! I'm stopping by again! :)

A couple more hours and I will be lighting my candle to remember Jordan and Carleigh. I also stopped by the florist and picked up 3 balloon-one blue, one pink, and one white-to release for all the babies who have been lost to us. They deserve to be remembered and I thank you allowing so many parents to do that with your jewelry.
