Too many babies are lost each year. Too many babies go forgotten. Too many parents are left with an empty heart and a life full of grief.
Jeremy and I are organizing a community wide balloon release for ALL parents who have lost a child. A miscarriage, stillbirth, infant death, disease, trauma, accident, etc. A child should never leave this earth causing pain for his/her parents. We want to make a day for all parents to come tog...ether and remember their precious babies/children. Each parent that sends us the name and date of loss of the child (if it was a miscarriage, just the date-unless you have named the loss) and you will receive a balloon to release in honor of your loved one. There will be no charge.
We wanted to do something special again to remember our son, Connor James. His short time with us has affected us forever. Grieving is such a long and hard process to go through alone. Meeting people who have gone through something simliar has helped us in grieving Connor's death. By having a day for all of us grieving parents to come together may open up the opportunity for someone else to meet another set of parents who share a smiliar situation.
Feel free to invite any family members or friends out to the event to help you celebrate the life of your child. Support from family and friends will help you on this day.
Hoping to share this special day with other parents. Thank you in advance for those who are willing to participate!
If you would like a balloon to release in memory of you child, please leave me a comment or send me an email to:
Please have your child's name, birthday and name of the parents submitted to me by March 15, 2011 so that we can have an accurate balloon count.
