Join Naomi's Circle founder Kristi Bothur today on her blog,This Side of Heaven, where she encourages non-loss friends and family not to worry about "reminding" a loved one of their loss...because a parent never, ever, forgets.
Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, which was established in 1988 through the efforts of Robyn Bear, and recognized for the first time by President Ronald Reagan. Tonight at 7:00 p.m. around the world, candles will be lit in memory of babies who have left this Earth too soon. Most of these will not be in public ceremonies, but in private homes where the memories run deep. Some candles will be lit in memory of babies lost in the last several weeks, and some will be for babies lost years or even decades ago. Because a parent never, ever forgets.
If you would like to share with Naomi's Circle the name and date of your child in Heaven, we would be honored. You can list your child's information in the comments below, or by going to Naomi's Nursery. You can also join our friends at Columbia SC City Moms Blog where a wall of remembrance has been created for our babies.
