About this blog

The intent of this blog is to form an interactive community where parents of dead babies can come together and swap information, stories, tears, memories and encouragement. This is designed to be a neutral place. We are not religious nor are we anti-religious. Come as you are. You can sign the guest book, add your baby(ies) to the baby name memory list, review books on infant death, add warnings about movies and books that contain a dead baby, add your blog to our directory or a number of other things. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to see something added to this blog. Rule One: be kind to each other. We're all in this together. We all suffer and miss our babies madly.

What's New?

If you are new to blogging and would like to be featured please let us know! Looking for parents who are new to this community and are looking for some peer support.

Question - October 15th

October 15th is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.

What are you doing, or going to be a part of, to memorialize the life of your darling child(ren)?

If you are looking for an event, check this site.  Don't see your area, and have something planned?  Let us know here by leaving a comment, and also submit your event here so others may know and remember with you.

I'd love to do something in my area but not sure if this year we will or not since it would be close after having our rainbow. I know I will at least either light candles or release balloons. And I'd like to have a couple giveaways on my blog.

I am not quite sure yet. I may be out of town. So depending on where I am and who I am with will help me decide. If anything, I can light a candle. If I am home, I may organize a dinner with a few IRL BL mom's.

If you are in the Toronto area, PBSO is having a Dove release on October 3rd. You can email them at pbso@pbso.ca for details.

I love Mary's idea of putting together a dinner for IRL BL mom's! What a wonderful thing. Keep us posted if you do go ahead and do this. I love the Dove release thing too. Last year I didn't do anything. I was still so bitter and I didn't want to "honor" the day, and my DH sort of felt the same way. I'm unsure if I will do anything "special" this year either. But perhaps I will light a candle for Logan.
