Wave of Light

Oct 15, 2015

i guess this is a new holiday in our family Day 15: wave of light

Today was supposed to be my 8 week out appointment. I canceled it because of the significance of today; a global remembrance day of our children. We ask all our loved ones to light a candle with us at 7pm and let it burn for at least an hour if possible. Post an image of your candle on social media with the hashtag ‪#‎waveoflight‬ and whatever words you'd want a bereaved family to see. Think of or pray for the families affected by pregnancy and infant loss. You might not know how much this support means to bereaved families. we don't want to twist arms and beg. We just want our children to be remembered.
The child loss community means a lot to me. It's a safe place. It can be dark but that's expected. It's humbling. i was called (by God) to practice in labor and delivery some 10 years ago. So this is just another aspect of a field I was already extremely passionate about. I love my new sisters and angel nieces. And brothers. And my new mom and angel friends. It would be harder without the support and understanding that the community brings. And for the future. I would like to see more hope in the community. It can have a doom and gloom feel at times. Rightfully so. But I want to see families better because of it. Not falling apart. And not hopeless. I hope one day more of us would turn in, look up, dig deeper, and birth forth something timeless and lovely because of what we've experienced. As timeless and lovely as our children. Our memories of our children will never die. it's okay to make new ones. Death doesn't have to be the end of their story. Keep writing until you find a fitting place for them to rest. For me. That'll be when I'm resting. She's coming through this journey called life, right by my side. I love my daughter.
Today's picture is of a candle a dear friend got me, that says "in memory of a life so beautifully lived....a heart so deeply loved" ‪#‎joislengrace‬ ‪#‎whathealsyou‬ ‪#‎joislen‬ ‪#‎captureyourgrief‬ #waveoflight

From your Godmomma. titi Geli

JT, there isn't a single day that goes by that you don't cross my mind. You're spirit filled the entire room, and I've never felt anything so powerful. It was a mix of emotions, of course. I had been waiting for you pretty much since I gave birth to your big cousin, and I felt such a bond with you from the moment I knew you were on the way. I'm so glad I got a chance to see you, and I can't wait to see you again. You are an angel, and it was amazing to hold you. You got to hang out with your little cousin before I even knew I was pregnant, and that's so cool. You are perfect. I will never ever ever forget you, my Goddaughter. Forever and always. 💞💞 Titi loves you!! ‪#‎waveoflight‬
