Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

Today, October 15th, is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

A year ago today, I would never have known how close this cause would be to my heart. A year ago, I was planning Sophia's first Halloween (as a kangaroo, thanks to her costume from Abby and Carly). I was looking forward to first words, first steps, but never a funeral or gravestone.

Not only do I have a direct link to this cause, but through my loss, I've met so many other amazing ladies who've also gone through miscarriages, stillbirths, or losing a child. These ladies have helped me in ways I cannot even express. I truly don't think I'd be here today without all of them.

So to commemorate today and to spread awareness about this cause, please light a candle at 7:00pm tonight and think of all the little angels that left our world too soon.

***The video is my favorite video I have to remember Sophia by... so in honor of today, I thought I'd share.


  1. Oh Natalie, what a special video of your sweet girl. Sophia was so beautiful, and seeing you interact with her was just precious...thank you for sharing her. Thinking of you today. <3

  2. What a beautiful baby. (((hugs))) I'll remember your little Sophia along with my angels today.

  3. She was so beautiful!

    I have a daughter in heaven too...
