Did you know that October 15 is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day? Many people aren’t aware that this day has been designated a national day of remembrance and to provide support, education and awareness for those who are suffering or may know someone who has suffered a miscarriage, an ectopic pregnancy, a stillbirth, or the loss of an infant.

Everyone is urged to light a candle at 7pm and keep it lit for one hour in memory of your baby, or someone you know that may have lost a baby. As a Mother of a stillborn son in 2008, I cannot urge enough how important it is to have any and all support from family and friends. Light a candle in memory of all babies, I will light my candle in loving memory of my son, Coleton.

If you would like a free Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Ribbon, you may stop in and pick one up at: Theodore Finnarn Law Office, 421 Public Square, Greenville – or call Tracey Arbogast at 937-467-0680.
