As I sit here and begin to type, my eyes are filled with tears.....
It has been a very emotional day. October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day - a day to honour and remember all the children we hold in our hearts instead of our arms.
These are the only words I can find today to express what it means to lose a child and how heartbreaking it is that this sadly happens every day. 1 in 4 families experience the loss of a child.
Right now a woman is giving birth, but her child wont ever open their eyes or cry, this child will be born sleeping, but still born
Right now a parent is wondering why their child hasn't woken for a feed, only to discover they have passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in their sleep
Right now a child is losing a battle against a fatal congenital abnormality or disease
October 15th Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day......will you remember?
My thoughts and prayers are with you all for a gentle day/evening. My candles have been burning since 7pm tonight in memory of Yasminah and all the beautiful angels missed by so many.
