In 1988, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed October to be Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month in the United States. The U.S. congress officially recognized October 15 as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in 2006. I just wanted to invite everyone to light a candle at 7 p.m. on October 15 and keep it burning for at least one hour in your local area in memory of all of our babies that were taken too soon. With this, there will be a continuous wave of light all over the world.  I will be lighting a candle for our own baby girl, Chloe Danielle Goodlett, whom we lost July 3 shortly after her birth.
