Is today and I am remembering my babies.  And my sister’s babies.  And my Mother’s baby.  And those of my friends.

I am thinking of you.

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.  I’ve been using this as my profile picture on my personal Facebook page.

I am the face.
I am 1 in 4.
Those statistics are real.
Heartbreaking.
How do you miss what you never knew?
You can and you do.
How do you grieve what you never knew?
You can and you do.
“There is no greater tragedy in life than the loss of a child. Unfortunately, because our babies live only within our wombs or they live outside of the womb for a short period of time, an uneducated society often minimizes the importance of their short lives and, in turn, our grief is trivialized.” Clair Baca
