October is the month dedicated to remembering all the angels that have been lost.  Do you have any plans on honoring yours this month?

My baby was Due October 7th so Monday will be incredibly hard for me. I am not sure how it's going to affect me right now. Every Monday is hard for me but I know this one will be excruciating. After yrs of praying for a child with my husband I found out I was pregnant when my ovary ruptured. They thought it was ectopic but had to do surgery regardless to stop the internal bleeding. After 4 hours of surgery I began bleeding vaginally and miscarried less than 24 hours after my surgery was complete. My heart breaks every day and I can't seem to get over it. I didn't know this month was Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. I don't know how to honor the loss of my baby or even if I could handle doing that. If you have suggestions I would be open. This isn't something I have ever shared with my neighbors. Only friends and family. So if it's something I could keep to myself at home that would be great. Thanks in advance.

(((HUGS))) It's whatever feels right to you. Some people like to plant something as a reminder, light a candle, do a balloon release, get a picture in the sand with "angel" and the date in writing to name a few suggestions. My miscarriage was in November, so I bought a crystal teddy bear ornament that hangs on my tree every year.
