October 15th

Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. It is a day that I knew about before having Lila, a day I thought about while pregnant with her, and a day I never imagined would be relevant to my life. It is nice that this day exists at all, but sad that no one really knows about it. You are supposed to light a candle at 7pm on this day in honor of babies you have lost and post the picture online. It is supposed to represent a "wave of light" in their honor. We lit Lila's candle in our front window for those who drove by to see, her candle burning for her.
