A Walk to Remember


Each October walks are held throughout the country to honor

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.


Sunday is my hospital's A Walk to Remember.

My bereavement colleagues and myself have been working hard for months to provide this beautiful event for our families who have suffered such a tremendous loss...the loss of a baby.

We will start with a remembering service, including a reading of the name of each baby being honored.

Then, a bag-piper will lead us in a procession to an open lawn.

There, he will start playing Amazing Grace...

and doves will be released.

A special bereaved family will lead us around the hospital for a one mile walk.

We will come back for refreshments and professional photographs.

We are expecting nearly 700 people to come and honor their precious babies.

It will be a bitter-sweet, incredibly meaningful day.


All of my friends who have lost a baby, through miscarriage, stillbirth, or newborn loss, are in my thoughts and prayers.

I remember you and your babies.

I wish I didn't already have other plans for this weekend. I would have liked to go. Hopefully, the weather will be easy on everyone.

That is such a nice thing to do.

I can't even imagine the pain that they must go through...

God bless you for all you do for them... :o)

You are making me tear up (and it aint pretty).

Thank you for your compassionate heart. And for your gift to these babies who are cherished still.

Such a special thing to remember and celebrate them.

Thank you my sweet friend!
