October 15th

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is October 15th. Please help raise awareness by lighting a candle at 7pm for 1 hour. If everyone all over the world will light a candle at 7pm, there will be a wave of light circling the globe.

I have talked openly about the tragic loss of Emma Grace, born 15 weeks too soon. In addition to her death, I have had 3 first trimester miscarriages.

I just sent you 2 wedding dresses and a prom gown. I am glad I read your blog - you do beautiful work, and I am glad to learn that Oct 15 is pregnancy and infant loss rememberence day. I sent the dresses to you on Oct 14th, my 9 year anniversary, and we too, have a 3 year old daughter, and have suffered through 3 miscarriages, all 1st trimester. When I read about Heavenly Angels in Need, and about using donated gowns for bereavment sets, it just seemed like a great way to pay tribute to our unborn children. And since one of the dresses I sent was worn by myself and my sister, it also pays tribute to her miscarriage. The more I learn the more confirmation I get that donating them to Heavenly Angels in Need was the right thing for us. Thanks for helping us make more memories out of those dresses.

Thanks agian-

Chris, what an incredible donation! Thank you so very much. I can't wait to get them and hope that I do them justice. I know donating your wedding dress had to be incredibly emotional. Please know that the family of the little angels will feel your love.
Missing your angels with you!
