Mourning with moms and dads

Infant section at Sacred Heart in Salisbury, NC
Yesterday was Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, but every day should be. It's easy to see how parents would experience much sadness over the death of their infant or unborn child.

Because their website doesn't allow you to cut and paste text or images, I can't re-post their entire list of good ideas to help parents, but I think the most important is informing parents of their right to name the child and give him or her a proper burial.

Also, a name and a proper burial helps others to see the dignity of a child whose life was brief in this world, but whose life is just as important in the eyes of his or her parents and God-- who created that life together.
