Baby Loss Awareness Week is held annually from 9th to 15th October. It’s a special opportunity to mark the lives of babies lost in pregnancy, at or soon after birth.
At the end of the week each year on the 15th October, people across the world take part in the International Wave of Light, lighting a candle or candles in memory of the baby or babies that have been lost. Photos of these candles on social media create a wave of light that spreads across the globe.
Children at Tops Fawley joined in the International Wave of Light by painting their very own candles:
“Wave of Light – All of the children have made their very own candle for all the sleeping babies. We also spoke about the dangers of going near candles and fire.#waveoflight2020“
Take a look at their lovely candles:
