National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month
Especially in the month of October, we remember families that have experienced a loss of one or more of their precious children. In the United States, October 15 of each year is proclaimed as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Lighting a candle at 7pm for one hour, wherever you are, will create a wave of light around the world!
For more information, articles, resources, offer and receive support and to share memorials visit the Lost Angels page. There are MOST families that have lost one of their babies and others that have lost more than one, even all of them. If you would like to connect with others who have similar circumstances, please contact the MOST office at 631-859-1110 or email Info@raisingmultiples.org
