Today is a day that I wish wasn’t in existence. Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. A day that I wish no one would ever have to recognize, including me.
Truth be told though, I’m the face of 1 in 4. I’m the face of multiple loss.
Today I remember each one of my angel babies. I remember all of the fond memories. The positive pregnancy tests. The excitement of being an expectant mother. The morning sickness. The ultrasounds. I also remember the heartache. The weeks of living in limbo. The fear and heartbreak of knowing that God had other plans for my little angels. The day my angels left my body and were nothing more than everlasting memories in my heart.
Today I remember my little sister, Danielle. A little beauty who blessed this earth with her presence for a few short days before spreading her wings.
Today my heart goes out to all parents and families who have had to endure the emotional heartache of pregnancy or infant loss. Let’s stand together as we remember and honour our little angels. Today, tomorrow and always.
Today, I remember.
