Some of you may know that today is recognized as National Pregnancy/Infant Loss Remembrance Day. What you may not know is that every day 2,000 women in the United States lose a baby. That is 700,000 a year and is a third of every female in the country is affected. No one talks about this and my wife and I were not aware of it until we lost our son Lukas at 23 weeks of pregnancy. We have no idea and will never know the cause of our son’s death but our lives have been forever changed. We want to make people aware of this issue, not to cause concern or make people worry about their pregnancy but to give them hope that if something does happen they are not alone.
So if you are one of the many parents that has suffered a loss please know that you are not alone and we are all dealing with the situation as well as we can. If you need support check out I Am the Face or Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope.
