About the event
IN MEMORY OF THE BABIES LOST TO MISCARRIAGE, STILLBIRTH, INFANT DEATH & SIDS
There is a reality so sad, so distressing, that many cannot fathom it. And yet, for 15,000 Alberta parents whose babies are lost every year, it is an experience they will never forget. Having to say goodbye when never having had the opportunity to say hello haunts these parents each day. And yet, these babies brought so much joy to their families. Each of them had an expected arrival, a highly anticipated future.
Parents who have lost a baby do not need closure. They need an opportunity to honor and celebrate the babies they cannot hold, without judgment, amongst families who crave the same opportunity.
On September 10, 2023, we will walk. Together, grieving mothers and fathers, friends and families, will join hands and hearts for all those little babies that did not have the opportunity to be brought home. There will be tears. There will be laughter. There will be hurt. There will be healing.
Life carries on; grief dwells in our hearts, but... Love endures.
