October 15th is officially Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in the United States. It was passed in Congress today.
According to the wonderful people at www.october15th.com:
Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is to promote support, education and awareness for grieving parents nationwide (and worldwide).
Too many families grieve in silence, sometimes never coming to terms with their loss. Our goal is to help others relate to our loss, know what to say, do or not say, not do and to help families live with their loss, not "get over" their loss.
I only wish the day was also recognized here in Canada. If I had any inkling as to how to go about doing here what the October 15th supporters have done in the States, I'd do it in a heartbeat.
Any ideas? Anyone? Anyone?
