August 19th - Day of Hope

Today is a day to talk about miscarriages, stillbirth, and infant/child loss. Please see the paragraph below that I copied and pasted from their Facebook page.

August 19th is a day to break down the walls of society that keep pregnancy, infant and child loss a hush hush subject. By having this special day once a year we get people speaking about pregnancy, infant and child loss. And by doing this we break those walls down so that people are not afraid to speak about these children anymore.

This is so important. So many women suffer in silence because it is just something not talked about. It makes people uncomfortable, it is too sad, it hurts too much, etc. There are many reasons why people don't talk about loss. But today is the day to speak out.

I am speaking out. I put up a picture as my profile picture on Facebook and wrote in my status that today I remember my babies that were lost. My name is Jenn, and I have had two miscarriages. I have lost three babies in the short span of 6 months. Today, I recognize that them. I miss them. I want to have my Casey, Jaimie, and Dustin back with me.

Have you experienced pregnancy, infancy, and child loss? Will you speak out?
