In October 2022, the ACDA created a story telling project for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Projects in prior years have included collages of our babies, a photo project of bereaved parents, memorial wall, luminaries, calligraphy, written word project about grief over time and an audio compilation of spoken names.
Bereaved parents often have limited opportunities to hear or say their beloved child’s name, with even fewer chances to talk about its meaning. We wanted to learn those stories. Please watch the video above or view the individual name cards below. It is our hope that sharing the story of your loved one’s name along with reading the names and stories of other children affected by ACDMPV will provide a sense of comfort and community within our ACDA families. A suggested idea is to read the final compilation of stories while lighting your candle on October 15 during the ACDA Wave of Light.
We encourage you to take a moment to watch the video above or read through the individual name cards below and reflect on the lives of these precious children and the heartbreaking loss endured by their respective families, friends and loved ones.
