October.

I can't take credit for this. A friend of mine had this as their status on Facebook yesterday. I've been wanting to blog about this topic, and I really couldn't say it better than this. So I stole it. Sorry Maggs, hope you don't mind ;)

"October is an Awareness Month for a lot of things, breast cancer, domestic violence, down syndrome, infertility, and SIDS. It is also National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Each year, approximately a million pregnancies in the US end in miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of the newborn child. Please help me speak out for those who can't, or are afraid to, and remember all babies lost this month".

October 15th, is National Pregnancy/Infant Loss Awareness Day!
Obviously, it's a day that's close to my heart, and although I hate more than anything that it has to exist, I am SO happy that there are folks out there who are trying to draw attention to this issue. It affects ONE THIRD of women in the United States. That's a LOT people! It's a big deal.

Take some time to check out I Am The Face to learn more about Oct 15th.

I hate that I'm one of the Faces. There's way, WAY too many of us.

By the way... for those of you here in the Nebraska/Omaha Metro Area,  there is a Candle light vigil at Heartland of America Park from 7-8 with a balloon release on October 15th. I will be unable to attend because I have a rehearsal dinner to go to for a wedding that I'm in that weekend, but I just wanted to pass the information along in case anyone else was interested!
