In Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day

::I SEE YOU:::

To the mother who was just asked, “how many kids do you have?”

I see you. 

To the mother who was just told, “I’m sorry there is no heartbeat”

I see you.

To the mother who had to make the heartbreaking choice to say goodbye; before saying hello.

I see you. 

To the mother who is expected to just “be happy you are pregnant again”

I see you. 

To the mother who just got her period.

I see you. 

To the mother who has decided to not try again.

I see you. 

To the mother who has her baby’s name tattooed on her body to serve as a reminder to others that they were here; they existed.

I see you. 

To the mother who held your child too briefly in your arms.

I see you. 

To the mother who is smiling but behind the smile is intense sadness that keeps you up until 4am searching for…something.

I see you. 

To the mother who has been forever changed.

I see you. 

To all the mothers who have experienced the profound loss of a baby, 

I see you. 

Always. All ways. 

October 15 is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day. Please join myself and others around the world as we light a candle at 7pm in each time zone, creating a wave of light as we remember each baby gone too soon.
