Today is the official Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, the focal point of the month-long awareness campaign. Part of the tradition is the Wave of Light. People all over the world will light candles at 7PM in remembrance of babies that have left us too soon. Whether your light represents your own child or a loss to someone you care about, I hope you will participate in this growing tradition to raise awareness and honor these babies. Keep your candle lit until 8PM, and together we will create a wave of light across the globe as each time zone reaches 7PM.
I wasn’t able to participate last year, but here is my candle from 2013.
Tonight I will light a candle for every name on my Wall of Remembrance. If your baby isn’t represented yet, please submit whatever information you can and are willing to so I can honor you son or daughter and lift you up in prayer.
