"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remebrance Day

*"Too many families grieve in silence, sometimes never coming to terms with their loss. Our goal is to help others relate to our loss, know what to say, do or not say, not do and to help families live with their loss, not 'get over' their loss."

I'm going to light a candle at 7 pm. Please join in. We are all in this together. Whether your loss was early in pregnancy or you lost a newborn, we all grieve for our lost babies. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you today and always.

Today makes me sad to remember, not only my losses, but everyone else. I am glad that there is a day to set aside some time to give out some good thoughts to the people that need it though. Thinking and sending love right along with you.
