October is recognised by many as being the internationally recognised month of awareness for Pregnancy and Infant Loss, announced by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 many parents who have suffered the loss of a baby have clung to the tradition of never forgetting those little lives.
Today on October 15th we will be joining the millions of families lighting a candle in memory of our son and all those little ones who have left a gaping hole in their families. At 7pm everyone is invited to light a candle in ALL time zones ALL over the world. If everyone lights a candle at 7pm in their time zone for one hour this means there will be a continuous 'Wave of Light' over the entire world on this day.
It seems like such a little thing to do but in a time when babies are still dying it helps those of us who are fighting daily to raise awareness for our causes. We think about our babies daily and all we ask is that you think of them too for a short amount of time.
If you'd like to light a candle for Alexander you can do so on his Memorial Page http://lullabytrustinmemory.org.uk/Alexander-Richardson.html
