Walk Hosted to Remember Lost Infants and Pregnancies

Otsiningo Park was host to UHS's Annual "Walk to Remember," Sunday. The walk is a quarter mile long, and is held in honor of the thousands of infants who die each year.

After the walk,  parents and family placed flowers on a tree dedicated in honor of the children lost this year. While the infants may have died, families say they will never be

"Often people think they don't wanna be reminded of an infant loss, or miscarriage, but what's most important is that we remember that they lived. They are a part of their lives. Everyday they remember them,"said Kathy Ballog, Delivery Nurse at UHS.

"I've been told that some of the families come every year, and have for several years. It means very much that their little one is being remembered," said Debra Wilson, Pastor of Comfort Ministry.

"Every birthday they go to the grave site. They often bake cakes, send up balloons. Their whole family remembers this brother or sister that they're gonna meet someday," said Kathy Ballog, Delivery Nurse at UHS.

The walk is held every year on the first Sunday of October in honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.
