This subject is one that is, all too often, dealt with in silence. There is a a strange, unspoken taboo against sharing about these losses. This day of remembrance is a way to honor the little ones who never fully shared in our families' lives, as well as to offer support to those who have suffered through the loss of a precious addition to their families.
One of the most beautiful parts about this day is the Wave of Light. At 7pm, wherever you are, you can light a candle. Leave it burning for one hour and it will become part of a continuous wave of light in memory of these sweet babies.
I know we'll be doing that in our house, in honor of our precious Riley Jordan.
