Mother’s Stories to Honor Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day
October 15th was Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Project Reveal has published two beautiful stories of mothers telling their story of their infant/pregnancy loss.
Season Two of Project Reveal brought us "Losing a Child: Celebrating the young lives we have lost" (49 minutes)
We celebrate the spirit to try again in the face of painful odds and the power of presence in a dark time. There is a circle of women who have redeemed their own loss and pain by serving others with programs of comfort.

In memory of:
Ethan Joseph Tarter, Madelynn Rose Hendricks, Ellison Kate Hendricks, Kimberly Freihaut, Ethan Knight, Logan Knight
Thank you: Kelsie Tarter, April Hendricks, John and Dani Knight and Sally Freihaut
