International World Peace Rose Garden, State Capitol
October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Sharing Parents has chosen October to hold our annual remembrance ceremony to remember our precious babies in a very special way while raising awareness in the community. Our program includes, stories of loss, music, candle lighting, ceremonial dove release courtesy of Wings of Love, and more.
There will be a memorial area for you to bring flowers, pictures and mementos of your baby(ies) to share and display.
Refreshments will be provided at the end of the ceremony, giving you an opportunity to meet with other parents and Sharing Parents volunteers. We invite you, your family, and friends to join us as we honor the lives of the babies that we hold in our hearts.
Following the ceremony there will be time for an optional butterfly release. It is recommended that you pre-order your butterfly(ies), as availability cannot be guaranteed on the day of the ceremony. Butterflies are on sale for $20 each and must be purchased by September 15th.
