WAVE OF LIGHT
1st Annual Awareness Vigil for Pregnancy and Infant Loss
October 15, 2009 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm
USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park
Birth Stories and More of Mobile is joining with the Global organization, Wave of Light, to sponsor a candlelight vigil for all families who have ever experienced a miscarriage, pregnancy or infant loss. Bring a candle to participate in the Wave of Light which has the goal of having candles lit around the world on October 15 in memory of those losses.
President Ronald Regan declared October as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month in 1988. Families who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss rarely get the opportunity to express or process their grief in a healthy and safe way with others who have experienced the same loss. This Remembrance Day allows everyone to both mourn and celebrate their short lives.
We will have a remembrance banner to add names and dates, an informal and on-going candlelight vigil, silent auction and loss awareness ribbons for purchase.
