October 15

October 15 is "Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day". This was passed in the United States House of Representatives as a day to remember our babies, and to support those who are remembering theirs.

On October 15, if everyone lights a candle at 7 PM, and lets it burn for an hour, there will be a continuous wave of light across the world. I want to request all of you to please light a candle at 7 PM on Oct 15. Obviously I want to remember my babies, but there are so many of my friends out there who have lost babies - my friends in real life, through message boards and through the blogosphere. Also there are so many people we don't know who have lost babies. Our lit candles will be a tribute to those little angels in heaven. 



The months of October and November are going to be very hard for me personally. Many bittersweet memories of last year are going to keep coming back. I know I'm going to look at those ultrasound pictures a few times, and I know I'm going to shed tears a few times. I know it will be hard, but that just makes me so determined to get to CCRM and get that last IVF going!

I will be sure to light a light on the 15th. It's such a small thing to do for something so big.

I'm sorry that you are having such a hard time. Thanks for your word of encouragement. They mean a lot to me. Nothing about this journey is easy, that is for sure. I'll be praying for you too.
