The resolution to declare October 15 a remembrance day passed the United States House of Representatives on September 28, 2006. It was the result of tireless efforts by a group of miscarriage awareness activists led by Robyn Bear, who had six first-trimester miscarriages in the span of 1997 through 1999.
In honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, Bear suggests on her website that grieving parents and those supporting them light a candle at 7 p.m. in their respective time zones to create a wave of light around the world in memory of babies lost to miscarriage and infant loss.
These aren't my candles I will photograph them this evening for the women I am supporting including Leah Marie @ Marital Bless, Katie @ Loves of Life, Ashley Paige @ I Love You More Than Carrots, Melanie @, Country Roads, Megan @ In This Wonderful Life and any others I may have forgotten, or who may have been silent about their losses. These women and their strength constantly amaze and inspire me. I encourage you to also light candles this evening for any in your own lives who have gone through such loss and post them on your blogs as a sign of support for all those remembering their losses. To the ladies I am supporting we will never forget your angels.
Love and Strength to you all,
