Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Event
October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Mothers, fathers, and families across the country take a few extra moments to reflect and remember the lives gone too early.
On October 25, 1988 it was President Reagan who first declared October to be Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Currently all 50 states have annual proclamations, with Kansas, among others, holding permanent proclamations declaring the day of Remembrance.
This year on October 15th, BirthWaves gathered family, friends and supporters to remember those lives lost. Together we lit candles, cried and told stories of precious babies that have forever left their mark on the world that they left too soon.
These are the babies that were honored at our vigil. Thousands and likely tens of thousands lives were remembered all over the world that evening.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched, but are felt in the heart. -Helen Keller
How old would your baby be now? What name did you give your child? Would he be starting kindergarten this year? Did she get her dad’s sense of humor? Would she love math?
Blue Muse Photography was generous enough to capture some photos of the evening for which we are extremely grateful.
