What to Expect:
When you arrive at the event, there will be a check in at a desk where you will locate your candle(s). We begin the event promptly at 7:00. There is a welcoming and a poem reading. Others are invited to share a poem, story or just talk. Then all the names are read. After all names have been announced, everyone goes out onto the deck and we set up the candles in a heart shape while the are lit. During the gathering, music is played as the candles flicker. The entire evening is about an hour and a half.
Come join others who understand your loss and honor those children who have passed through pregnancy, infant, and child loss. Photographer Ashley Henry will be there to take photographs of each candle. You do NOT have to be present to have your baby(ies) name read or a candle lit.
