10/15 National Infant and Pregnancy Loss Remembrance Day
“If you know someone who has lost a child or lost anybody who’s important to them, and you’re afraid to mention them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that they died, they didn’t forget they died. You’re not reminding them. What you’re reminding them of is that you remember that they lived, and that’s a great, great gift.” ~ Elizabeth Edwards
October 15 is a day of remembrance for all the parents that had to say good bye too soon. Every bird, butterfly, lady bug, purple flower and breeze reminds us of her presence. Every song that has the word you or us or love or baby reminds us that she was with us for 2 years, 3 months and 18 days. Too short, but for the parents that didn’t even have minutes, we cherish our time with her. Ava reminds me often that LaLa is a little tiny baby and will always be our baby. They talk of her often and say they miss her. We’ll light a candle tonight after the toddlers are tucked away as we do many nights and days.
Ava and I made cookies for her today instead. I may have a future chef on my hands, or at least a professional spoon licker.
