In honor of pregnancy and infant loss rememberance day, #waveoflight2018, I light this candle.
I light this candle for my beloved son, Sterling Greyson Smith, I light it for my brother I never got to meet, I light it for my my friends that are in this heartbroken club with me, and for all the amazing angel babies we no longer have in our arms, I light this candle.
I am 1 in 4 women that suffers from this loss. The burden is heavier than any I ever imagined and I would never wish this on anyone, but so grateful to know that I am not alone. My mother before me and her mother before her, lived in a different time when this was not a thing we spoke of, they were shunned and forced to forget about their babies they lost. I was supported and fed and loved. My community showed me that I was held. Thank you! . . .
