Tonya, RETA's Pregnancy Loss Support Coordinator, along with Julie from Northern Indiana Hope Mommies and Lynda of Loved Baby came together for a Pregancy & Infant Loss Candlelight Memorial event at Sugar Grove Church in Goshen on Sunday, October 21. The open house-style event provided families who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth and early infant loss an opportunity to honor their babies' lives, share their stories and learn about local loss support programs.
Attendees wrote notes to their lost children or a letter in honor of their baby, placed them under candles and lit the candles as a reminder that they were here and their lives mattered.
Losing your baby is tough. If you need support, please consider coming to RETA’s Pregnancy Loss Support group, which meets the second Monday of each month from 6-7:30 p.m. at RETA’s offfice.
