Sweet girl, tomorrow is a day dedicated to you and all babies who have left the world too soon. October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Not that we need a specific day to remember you by any means, but a day that we get to remember you in a sweet candlelight vigil. I knew nothing of this month and specific day before this year. In my reading and research I have found out how wonderful this day really is. Your daddy and I have never had to hide our feelings, but some parents have no one to share their feelings with or feel they have to keep them hidden. This day lets grieving parents live with and remember their loss, instead of “getting over” their loss for others.
Remembering Our Babies website is where I found most of my information about this specific day. A candlelight vigil will be held at 7:00pm, in all time zones, in remembrance of all babies. Everyone is asked to light a candle so that a continuous wave of light will occur all over the world on October 15th. We started our light tonight so that it would be lit already starting on October 15th. The chances that it is still lit by morning are slim, but we will be at a vigil in Madison at 7:00 pm so we want a continuous light at your gravesite for the day.
Goodnight sweet girl and please give us a little extra strength to get through our tears and heartache tomorrow. Loving and remembering you always.

Thank you so much for lighting the candles from a different perspective. You and Roger are incredible friends.
