Thank you all who participated in Sunday’s Remembrance Walk and Ceremony for Pregnancy and Infant Loss. What an amazing day…
We had about 40 people show-up for the event – Mothers, Fathers, Siblings, Grandmothers, Nurses, Social Workers, Midwives…such a beautiful community of support we have in our sweet Bellingham.
I was, and continue to be, awe-struck by the beauty of the raw human spirit – its courage, its openness, its offering and receiving, and the amount of light and energy that is generated when a community comes together in the spirit of love.
With this, I am also aware of the many Mamas and Dads around the country who did not have an official walk this month – one that specifically acknowledges, honors, and remembers their babies lost. For these parents, and for all parents who have lost babies, we light a candle tonight, Oct 15 at 7pm our time, in honor of your baby, your journey.
We look forward now to our Mending Babyloss parent support group beginning – November 18, 2009.
We also look forward to next year’s walk, which will be either on October 3 or October 10, 2010.
