It was the unimaginable. My sister was 24 weeks pregnant when her life changed during a routine ultrasound, and she learned that her son Aiden had passed away. He was stillborn, and there aren't words to describe the soul and spirit wrenching grief and difficult healing that she and her husband have undergone since his passing.
We created Aiden's Light, a peer support page on Facebook for parents who have had a miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss.
Locally, we are supporting Kindermourn in Charlotte, which provides free counseling and support for bereaved parents of children. The mission has remained strong, and the heart of KinderMourn still beats for one purpose...to provide a safe haven for those who have suffered an unimaginable loss.
You can help with their mission. Kindermourn is hosting their 10th annual Hope Floats Duck Race on April 27th, 2014 at the White Water Center. 15,000 ducks will be raced down the white water rapids and one single duck will win prizes for their adopted family.
Please consider adopting a duck in honor of a loved one. They are $5 per duck (unable to purchase a single duck online, contact me for a form to submit). Online you purchase a quack pack (6 ducks) for $25 or a float of ducks (12 ducks) for $50. Click here to adopt a duck and make a difference for those who have suffered an unimaginable loss.
