Tomorrow (October 15) is National Pregnancy Loss and Infant Remembrance Day. To acknowledge and bring more awareness to this day and to the millions of families that have lost their babies and suffer in silence, I will be bringing you several posts over the next several days.
I will be (finally) bringing you Part 3 of my miscarriage story tomorrow which will bring the story to a close. You may want to go ahead and read Part One and Part Two in preparation if you haven’t done so already. In addition, I will be sharing several stories and poems from others who have been down this same lonely road and family members and friends who have not lost themselves but have been affected by others’ losses.
October 15, 2006 was only days after my own loss and I was thankful for a day like this to recognize my loss and to meet with others who had shared my experience. I attended a candle lighting at a nearby park just 3 days after finding out. It was through this that I found out about a Bible Study specifically for those who had had a pregnancy loss. Attending the study was tremendously healing for me. (If you are local and would like information about the study, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below.)
