Today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

It is also only 10 days till Logan’s birthday.  October is a very sad month for me.  I always get a little more depressed this month.  I always seem a little more out of sorts.  A little more easily aggitated.

No one should have to experience the loss of a baby or child.  It’s cruel and unusual punishment.  At least, when older people die, they have lived their life and experienced it (hopefully).

People are so afraid to talk about babies dieing.  Why is that?  Why can you talk about your grandmother, grandfather, aunt, relative, friend dieing but not a little one?  Babies, born or unborn, should be talked about just as much.  Remembered just as much. 

People ask me if Corban is my only son.  I always say no.  I have 2 sons.  One is just no longer with me.  I will NEVER let his memory die. NEVER! He will always be my first born.  Corban will be brought up knowing he has a brother.  I am not ashamed.  No one who has a loss should be ashamed.  Why does it seem so taboo to talk about a  baby you lost?

Please join me in remembering all those babies that are no longer with us.  Have a moment of silence, light a candle, say a prayer, hug someone – something!  Each life is precious and should be honored.

I agree with Monica.  Maybe one day there will be a walk or a race or a benefit for pregnancy & infant loss.  Until then, keep their memories alive!
