A Day of Hope

Today, along with many other grieving parents and family members, I think of my twins.

Carly Marie's Day of Hope is just another wonderful day of tribute to those babies and children lost to us too soon. Whether you lost a child by miscarriage, preterm labor, in the NICU or just want to speak out about infertility - this is a powerful outlet.

Here is what Carly has to say...

"... August 19th is a day to break down the walls of society that keep pregnancy, infant and child loss a hush hush subject. People view the death of a baby as just a sad thing that happened. These babies that die are not sad things that happen. They are people, much loved and wanted children. They are brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, grandsons and granddaughters.

August 19th is about openly speaking about these children and celebrating their short lives.

By having this special day once a year we get people speaking about pregnancy, infant and child loss. And by doing this we break those walls down so that people are not afraid to speak about these children anymore."

You can follow the link to her blog and participate on Facebook or through your blog if you like. I did. Just head to CarlyMarie Project Heal.

M & A ~ Mommy and Daddy (& baby brother) love you very much. We remember you always.
