There were a few speakers, some special songs and then a candle-lighting ceremony. Each family got up and lit their candle for their baby/child and said his or her name. It was beautiful and special but very sad. So many families! It was only a tiny representation of the community of people who will be missing their sweet little one this Christmas.
I cried a lot of the way through the service, but it was good and I'm glad we went. Faith's Lodge is such an amazing place. Please consider donating to them if you're looking to make a holiday contribution.
Here is the video of the children remembered at the ceremony. Only families who sent in a photo are listed.
