This year we will have a lovely couple also helping run the candlelighting — Jeff and Irma.

We will light our candles between 7 and 8 p.m.  Parking is easiest along Riverside or in the lot off Dawson Road. Most of the runners are leaving at this hour, so you can usually find a spot if you see someone heading to their car. You should be able to spot us by our candles and signs.

I will have candles for everyone, and many parents will bring theirs too.

Feel free to share this event with your list of families in Austin.

Event Contact Phone: 304-887-7282

Brief Description of Event: Once again in cooperation with SIDS, Pregnancy and Infant Loss (PAIL) Awareness month, there will be a walk to remember and a candle lighting vigil to honor the lives of those who have gone too soon. Even though there has been a name change, this will be the 9th annual event!! With the name change, we are trying to strengthen the continual rise in awareness for such a great cause. The purpose of this walk is for everyone to come together to remember and validate their Angels, and bring comfort and support to each other.

Our mission is to bring more advocacy to pregnancy and infant loss, acknowledge and honor the brief lives of our Angels, help others to come to terms with their loss, and show our support for PAIL. All too often families grieve alone or feel they have to remain quiet about the little ones who have left footprints on their hearts. October is a time to support and spread awareness for such a taboo subject. Please join us in activities to remember those who will Always be in Our Hearts!

Their will be a memory board so please bring something to add to it, such as a picture, poem, name or anything that you remember your angel by. There will be a time for you to share your story, poems, or wordsof encouragement.
Registration is optional but preferred to ensure enough refreshments and ribbons. Awareness items will be available for purchase. Personalized commemorative t-shirts can be ordered with your babies name on it by Oct 2nd. If anyone needs invitations send me a message and I will mail them.

To register or for more information, contact me by calling or texting to 304-887-7282 or email  AlwaysInOurHeartWalk@gmail.com I am very excited for the new venue and other changes. I can’t wait to see you all in October for this day of Remembrance, Hope, and Celebration!!

Brief Description of Event: This is a candlelighting ceremony and luminary-lit meditative walk on a bluff overlooking the scenic St.Croix River Valley and historic Downtown Hudson. Come share a quiet time of lighting candles and remembering our babies lost during or shortly after pregnancy due to miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, SIDS, or other causes. Miscarriage and pregnancy loss are often misunderstood by the general public leaving survivors often feeling alone or ashamed of their grief. Recalling and retelling a loss can be helpful in the grieving process and we welcome those who wish to talk of their loss to do so. We also embrace those who wish to be silent. If your loss was recent or decades ago, you are welcomed. Bring friends and families experiencing child loss. We’ll have tables for photos and small mementos and we provide candles.
