Pregnancy and infant loss awareness month celebrating the little ones gone to soon

October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. Every year we hold an event for local families to come out for fellowship, food, heart flower seed release down the stream and sky lantern release. This year I had the amazing opportunity to have Jessica, a Bereavement Doula, come along side and offer support to these beautiful families.

We honored 67 beautiful babies as we released flower seed hearts down the moving stream as "What a beautiful name it is" by Hillsong Worship. I can not even begin to express how moving this was.

A butterfly lights besides us like a sunbeam. And for a brief moment its glory and beauty belongs to the world. But then it flies once again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky to have seen it - author unknown
