Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope

Have you seen this site yet? If not, definitely check it out. Women with all kinds of pregnancy and infant losses – from early miscarriage to SIDS – have come together to share their stories and bring awareness to the issue and to provide support to other women experiencing the same thing.

They’re doing a big campaign called “I am the Face” for The National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day on October 15. They’re trying to collect the photos of 2,000 women who have lost their babies (again, early miscarriage, late miscarriage, stillbirth, infant loss…anything) to represent the 2,000 women A DAY (a day…can you believe that??). Please help them out by submitting your picture. It literally takes less than a minute! You don’t need to write out your story or anything – just the picture!

They’re also providing Facebook profile pics that you can use on October 15 (or before) along with suggested statuses. The site also has ways to donate, media kits, and more. I know I’ll be using one of their pictures on October 15 and it’d be amazing if we all did the same!
