You stayed only a moment, but what a legacy your footprints have left on our hearts.
While our little ones may only have been placed in our arms for a moment, they live safely in our hearts and memories forever. On October 15th, the Annual Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day Candle Lighting Ceremony will be held to honor their memory. We will gather at 6:45pm on the lawn fronting the Kalana O Maui County Building, 200 High Street and light candles at 7pm as is done around the world- creating a continuous wave of light in remembrance.
The loss of a pregnancy or infant is heartbreaking and can be an isolating experience- with close friends and family so often at a loss for what to say or do. Connect with other families with similar stories who understand the ache- the forever love and share your story and remember by candlelight. Wonderful comfort and acceptance can be found when surrounded by families who have walked a similar journey.
Parents, friends, family & professionals touched by pregnancy or infant loss are welcome. Candles will be provided and lit at 7pm followed by light snacks and refreshments.
