Infant Death Awareness Month
In 1988, President Reagan declared October to be National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Today, we set aside space on the blog to remember those lost too early in their lives and their parents who grieve their loss. Who of us does not know someone who grieves the loss of their child? Even in our world of medical wonders, we are still so vulnerable. Take the time to remember those we love who are hurting in this particular way. Be brave and listen to their stories if they should happen to share them with you. Take a moment to think that others around you might be suffering in silence. Many of us find it so hard to acknowledge loss at such an early stage of life. Some of us have had no choice to acknowledge this fact. Be kind to one another as they move through their grief.
