Gift of Life is partnering with the Alabama Department of Public Health’s River Region Community Action Team to hold a candlelight memorial for families across the River Region who have lost a pregnancy or infant on October 15 at 6:00 p.m. at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. The event coincides with the International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day and all over the world people will be lighting candles at 7 p.m. to show support, share resources and raise awareness about infant mortality for those who have lost a baby.
The event will include poems, prayers, a balloon release and the lighting of candles. Families who desire to share their infant or pregnancy loss stories will be given an opportunity to do so.
