About National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month
In October of 1988, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the month of October as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. President Reagan was himself a bereaved father, losing a daughter at just one day old in 1947. He knew firsthand how it felt to lose a child and he recognized how important it was to honor, remember and bring awareness to this tragedy that spans across time and generations. On October 15th, every year since then, people around the world have lit candles to create a wave of light in remembrance of the millions of babies who die every year. Grieving parents, siblings, family and friends light candles in the comfort of their own home and communities gather at candlelight ceremonies. Normally, we would be a community gathering together to honor and remember our forever loved babies in person. However, due to COVID, we are remembering in smaller gatherings, with limited family and friends, or even alone. If you are alone during this time, know that our hearts are with you and we remember your beloved child alongside you.
