This Remembrance Day is to honor families who have lost babies through pregnancy, stillbirth, or in early infancy. This Fifth Annual Forever in Our Hearts Remembrance Day is being planned by local bereaved parents and Madison area non-profit Mikayla's Grace.
October is the nationally recognized month of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness as proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan in 1988. October 15th was then envisioned as a day for families and friends to come together to remember and honor babies who left this world too soon.
Over the past four years we had hundreds of people gather in honor of these babies and we hope you will join us this year on Saturday, October 24th, 2015. The event will be held at BTC Events in Fitchburg, Wisconsin.
If you would like to serve on the planning committee for the Event this year, please contact Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are still in need of donations and sponsorships to help make this event successful.
