Today, May 1st, is recognized as International Bereaved Mother's Day. It is a day to remember all babies and children who are lost and all the mother's who are left behind. I personally had never heard of this day until this year, but wanted to write about it. There is a woman named Jessi Snapp (http://luminouslightstudio.com) who painted a gorgeous print for me earlier this year in honor of Lila's birthday. She also has experienced the loss of a baby and started a shop where she designs things in honor of all babies gone too soon. She is the one who produced this amazing video and is the sweetest person and I am glad to have gotten to connect with her over the past few months. (Click here for link to video).
If you watch this video you should probably do so alone or in a quiet space as you need to hear what she is saying and it is quite emotional. Although this video is incredibly sad it is important to remember, educate and inform people through all of the grief and sadness. Plus you get to see a few cameos of Lila and I.
