For all those who don´t know, October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. I ask that you please just take a moment to remember all the babies and their families who have had to say good bye too soon.
If you have a moment, take a look at these two websites. They have so much wonderful information and support such a great cause.
Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope: Putting a FACE on miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss
A Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Campaign
(Copied from the I am the Face website): Every single day in the US lose a baby to pregnancy/infant loss. That´s 700,000 a year, a third of every female in the country. So why does no one talk about it?
In honor of October 15th, National Pregnancy/Infant Loss Remembrance Day, we are opening up the conversation. We are ¨putting a face¨on miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss. We are sharing our faces and declaring to the world, ¨I am not ashamed to talk about my baby¨.
The goal of the I AM THE FACE campaign is simple: to spread awareness of pregnancy/infant loss, and raise support for those who are affected by it. With your help, we will raise $2,000 for the 2,000 women who experience the loss of a child every day. $2,000 for 2,000 faces.
Donations will go to Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope, a nonprofit organization with a mission of providing support and resources for parents who have lost a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss and to spread awareness of pregnancy and infant loss throughout the greater community.
Thanks so much for your understanding, help, and support with this.
Thinking of you always, my little angel
