Pregnancy and Infant Loss Month- Share Your Stories
Most of us know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but it seems only a handful are aware that it’s also Pregnancy and Infant Loss Month. Pregnancy and infant loss has become such a taboo topic. It is one of the most devastating things that can happen to a person- the loss of a child. You never think, in your wildest dreams, that it will happen to you. We all hope and pray never to find ourselves among those who have suffered such an incredible loss, and yet there are many of us who have. And once you’ve experienced such a loss, it seems to take a lifetime to heal.
The healing process varies dramatically from person to person- some choose to keep to themselves, some choose to surround themselves with family and friends, some choose to join a support group. One of the most important steps in the healing process is to talk about your loss. And that’s just what we want you to do. We want you to share your stories with us, with our readers; your ups and your downs, and how you navigated your way through life after your loss. We want you to find comfort in knowing you’re not alone, in knowing your little angel will never be forgotten.
