National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day
In August of 2005, I lost a baby at 13 weeks. For some reason, miscarriage is a taboo subject, if it happens, you just don't talk about it. As the mother, you are crushed, yet no one wants to talk to you. I remember the nurse at the hospital handing me a booklet about miscarriage and telling me to forget about that day. I never knew my child, yet I did grieve, and I will never forget that day. Three monthes later I was blessed to become pregnant again with my youngest son. In memory of the child I lost, I lit a candle tonight.
