In October 2018, the ACDA organized a photo project in honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. Projects in prior years have included collages of our babies, luminaries and calligraphy. This year we are focusing on bereaved parents. Each photo portrays an ACDA parent living with heartbreak. The pink hearts represent the loss of a baby daughter and the blue hearts signify the loss of a baby son. The yellow hearts symbolize pregnancy loss through miscarriage. We encourage you to take a moment to look through the photos and reflect on the loss endured by each of these parents and their respective families, friends and loved ones.
“For those who understand, no explanation is needed; for those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.” The purpose of this photo project is to show what grief looks like on so many different faces and to see a wall of strength of bereaved parents honoring and remembering their babies, together. When you provide unconditional support to any of these parents, you are shining a light for us all. #WaveofLight #ACDAWaveofLight #infantloss #PAIL
