A day to remember....

Today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in the United States. This day was created to give family, friends, and the world a day to remember these babies that have been lost.

The established ritual for this day is to light a candle at 7 p.m. in your own time zone, which creates a wave of light as each candle is lit. Whether you choose to do so or not, please, take a moment tonight to remember these lost lives, but, also, I ask you to remember the parents, grandparents, family, and friends who so long to be holding those babies and, sadly, can't.

Thank you for posting about this. I just presented you with a "I Heart Your Blog" Award on my blog, if you're interested.

I wish I'd seen this last week. I've been hibernating and out of touch. I would have lit, well, a few candles to mark the moment. Maybe I'll do it tonight.

As I see more and more bloggers get pregnant on IVF cycles 1 and 2 and sometimes 3, I am starting to feel like a dying breed. For me, IVF cycle 5 (6 if you count my FET) is coming in January. I can't wait to start.

Good luck on lucky #7. I'm rooting for you.
