Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.  The International Wave of Light invites participants from around the world to light a candle in honour of the babies who don’t survive pregnancy or early infancy.

The Wave Begins today at 7pm (October 15) in your respective time zone, and the intention is to leave a candle burning for at least an hour.  The result is a continuous chain of light spanning the globe for a 24 hour period in honour and remembrance of the children who have passed during pregnancy or shortly after birth.

You can obtain more information about the Wave of Light at  Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day – October 15th
