I find it incredibly fitting that the last day of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month falls on Halloween. Also known as: All Souls Night or Day of the Dead. This is a time when we are able to celebrate the lives that have passed from this existence into the next… whatever that may mean to you in your own belief system. A day where we think the veil between worlds is thinner and that contact with the departed can be made. Around the world people set a place for their loved ones at dinner and offer them wonderful foods and drink. It is said that our ancestors gather around us on this day! Why would it be any different for our children? May your Halloween be blessed and may you feel the spirits of those you’ve lost around you.
This can be a day of comfort… Be Well.
