Day is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. At 7pm, everywhere around the world, people will be lighting a candle in memory of their baby, and all babies. Each in their own time zone. In a way, this creates a wave of light across the world, each group after the other, lighting their candles in remembrance of our babies.
I set up a little corner in our living room for Kale. One of my sisters in law crocheted this little blanket for Kale's 1st first birthday and it's perfect. it's the perfect size, and would have fit him just right too. Another sister in law gave me the little candle and candle holder in the middle. I didn't have the chance to tell her, but it's so perfect. I have been on a sort of hunt to find something I could use each year for the Wave Of Light. And this is exactly it.
And so tonight, at 7pm, I'll be lighting that candle and thinking of Kale and all others who are no longer here with their families. I have a list of of names in my head and heart of those I'll be thinking of, but at the risk of accidentally missing one I'm not going to post them all here. Just know, that I am remembering your sweet babies with mine, and my heart is hurting with yours.
