Two posts in one day.

Well, I normally don't do this, but I am so excited about something that I just found from someone on my message board that I had to share it with you!

October 15th Raleigh is a special event in Raleigh in honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, which is (as aptly named) October 15th! 

I had no idea there was such a day designated, but I am so very grateful and touched that there is a special person who has organized this for our area! 

While I don't want to infringe on copyrighted information from the October 15th Official website, I do want to point you to a link worth reading which explains the origin of October 15th and the background behind Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month from the official website.

It is so sad to read the stories of other mothers, and especially other mothers in my area who have suffered the loss of their baby.  Please send up a special prayer for these women and their families during this month and especially on October 15th! 

Rob and I will most definitely be attending the candlelight memorial on the South Lawn of the N.C. State Capitol on Thursday, October 15th.  I am joyful that Mary Grace will be remembered in a special way that evening!

Thanks, friends!

Angela, I saw your comment on Mary Baker's blog and just had to tell you that I had a still born baby girl 38 years ago, and I can tell you I still remember her birthday every year. Through the grace of God we have a wonderful son and daughter, and 3 beautiful granddaughters, twin girls, Cassidy and Madison, and 9 month old Amanda. God bless you and keep you and your family!
