The theme for Lexington Medical Center's memorial service on Sunday, October 23, 2011, was "A Time to Remember". At the beginning of the service, parents were invited to come forward, choose a flower from a selection laid out on a table, and add it to a vase in memory of the baby or babies they had lost - a visual reminder that they are not alone in their grief. Several personal stories followed, and then a song called "A Cradle of Wings", a CD of which was given to each parent there. The service concluded with a ceremony by a fountain outside where parents were given glass beads to represent their tears. They were encouraged to toss one "tear" in the fountain where the sunlight would transform their "tears" into sparkles of beauty.
Thank you, Lexington Medical Center, for valuing the children who went before us, and for reaching out to their parents and loved ones left behind!
