It has been some time since you’ve heard from us, but we’re trying to get back on track. I have been going through some medical issues (2 surgeries and other medical procedures) that have made it difficult and slow to work on things for the website beyond maintenance and upkeep. I’ve focused on other areas that I can work on, helping families, outreach, networking, etc. I’ve been here, it has just been a bit more low key.
We’ve got some updates coming to the website:
- New resource information organized by world wide, state, and international areas. We will also have an area for you to submit information on organizations, websites, etc.
- Area that covers possible triggers – gathered from other Angel Families. Be it movies, music, books, religious quotations, etc. Also another submission area.
- Area for items that help – once again gathered from other Angel Families. This would also be movies, music, books, religious quotations, etc. This will also have a submission area.
As things continue to change, we will post updates and this information will always be in our newsletter.
Now, the month of October…it is a vital month of remembrance for so many families as it is recognized world wide for being the Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness month. The specific date is October 15th, but the entire month is important. This is a time for Angel Families to come together, to remember together, to share, to mourn, grieve, rejoice in the memories, and just take a moment to pause.
This is a time that so many Angel Families actually feel they can be more open about their loss. This is a time that they can rejoice in the love they have for that precious child, and also a time they can openly mourn and grieve over the loss of that precious child.
So many Angel Families don’t feel that they can be open any other time of the year, so this month is very important. For those of you who have suffered this loss, remember, you are not alone. We are here. There are so many of us that know the pain, you do not have to go through this alone. For those of you that are close to, connected to, or work with Angel Families, take a moment and remember… remember those families, remember the children, and give the families a bit of love, acknowledgement, and sometimes just a smile and a hug will do wonders.
As we get through October, the holidays will be fast upon us. Take this time to pause, take a deep breath, and charge your batteries. You are not alone.
From one Angel Parent to all of you,
