Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day is today!

This week is a significant time for MANY families all around the world!

Here is a moving song called Glory Baby by Watermark. Grab a tissue this is very powerful.

Today, October 15Th, is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. It's a day for people to acknowledge, remember, cherish & think of the little souls that were born sleeping, miscarried or taken too soon in their young lives!

Miscarriage/stillborn has always been a touchy subject and sadly it's the moms that are left to pick up, move on, let go of what has happened to them. It is a gut wrenching feeling to know you won't be holding that baby you so badly wanted. I remember feeling bad for those that had lost babies early in their pregnancies and not really acknowledging their pain. My heart would be sad for them but I wouldn't know what to say so I didn't say anything. I look back on my behavior and my heart aches for them deeply. I wish I would have reached out and listened to them while they grieved.

I have experienced both a stillborn (38 weeks) and a miscarriage (20 weeks) and for me personally the miscarriage shook me to the core. I felt blessed to hold Graycee, love her, see her, have answers etc. However with my miscarriage it was different their was no answers, no holding my sweet baby, no closure. That closure is a powerful tool in recovery and to not have that was paralyzing.

I have found hope in books, friends, and just talking to others who have experienced the same pain of losing a child. Thank you!

So if you will be participating in the WAVE OF LIGHT, by lighting a candle tonight please link up and bring awareness and share your stories to help others. I will be praying for all those babies and their hurting families!

B-O-O I'm back...

WOW! I have been busy, tired, busy, tired, okay so maybe a little lazy with my blog lately, sooorrry. I will try to do better now that we have school routines down, schedules revised, and meals in the freezer :)

My boys LOVE doing crafts so when I saw these on Family Fun I knew we had to start saving milk jugs and we did just that. The boys had soo much fun creating the faces and I think they turned out spooktacular! Look close we have a ghost, scary faces, an alien, and one with loooong feet. When it gets closer to Halloween I will set these outside with lights and take a pic.
