October 15th, National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day.

Today is National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day, and October is National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month.

My husband & I remember our angel baby Serenity Rose, gone in June 2008. We remember and honor all the precious babies gone too soon; those who have touched our hearts, blessed our lives, and changed us forever. Always loved, never forgotten.

We thank God for blessing us with The Boy, our rainbow baby, in July 2012.

This is good stuff. Having been there and heard many of these from people who meant well, I can say firsthand that when you don’t know what to say, don’t say anything – just share a hug and a prayer.

THIS.

Wrong: Don’t talk about him. It will make you sadder.

No. Actually, talking about him makes me happy and helps me work through feelings. I’m sorry if you are uncomfortable, but this is part of how I cope with my grief. I need to make sure that people remember him.

Wondering what you CAN (and SHOULD) say?

I’m sorry.
I wish this hadn’t happened.
How can I help?
What can I do for you?
I’m lighting a candle for you.
You’re in my thoughts.
