Wave of Light

Today, October 15th, is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness day. As one who has lost several angels, I always try to take note of the day as an opportunity to share the stories of Thomas and Kjersti, or to teach my readers about what to say/do when someone you know miscarries, or share ideas of how to cope with your own losses.
Last year on this day I wrote this post Empty Bellies, Empty Arms, and I don't really have anything to add to that... however, if you are touched by any of my posts on the subject, or if you have ever lost a little one, or know anyone who has, then I invite you to participate tonight in the Wave of Light.
Having my toddler often distracts me from the memories of my angels, and I guess time does soften the pain...it's been 3 years since my last miscarriage and it does get easier with time...I wonder how much of it is forgetfulness and how much is true healing. I'll probably never know.

wow, it is so interesting that I am learning about this day of remembrance now. I have a friend who recently had a miscarriage. I really didn't know how to act, so I am grateful that you have dedicated some posts to the subject. I love your blog!

Wow, that's really a beautiful idea. I too would like to know what to do and say when someone has a miscarriage. Thanks for addressing the issue.
