October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. My Forever Child has been donating the Always in My Heart lapel pins to numerous organizations that are distributing them to newly bereaved parents. We also make frequent monetary donations to our favorite pregnancy and infant loss charities in order to fund research and support to those touched by infant loss.


October 15th is the Worldwide Recognition Day. Please light a candle at 7pm on October 15th. Leave it burning for at least an hour, so that there will be a continuous wave of light around the globe in remembrance of our precious little ones, gone too soon.

IAmTheFace.org is an October 15th, National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day campaign. 2,000 women in the US alone lose a baby… every single day. Our goal is to raise $2,000 for the 2,000 women who lose a baby each day. Take a couple of minutes to upload your photo and donate $1 to their campaign.

I just wanted to say "Thank You". The pamphlet is wonderful ideas. Most people don't even know that it is Pregnancy and Infant loss awareness month.. I just wanted to let you know I appreciate your time in spreading the word.. Losing my son Christian was the worst time in my life and no one can know the pain I feel. ~Christina
