Every year several families across the world face tragedy of losing their infants due to pregnancy loss or any other reason. Thursday night several families gathered in Montgomery for a vigil in remembrance of the loss.
Nathan and Wendy Blakley who lost their son, Owen, four years ago at 37 weeks gestation due to a placental abruption, also stood strong during the vigil. The couple shared the story of their loss with other families who know the real pain one feel on the loss.
The Blakleys also participated in the candlelight service at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. The vigil was in honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, and was hosted by the River Region Community Action Team.
Nathan Blakley said, "We'd never been through anything like this. We really didn't know anyone who'd been through anything like this but I think once you do, you become so keenly aware of how often it does happen".
Nathan said they are feeling good to be with other people who've been through the same thing because they understand the pain of the loss and know that it's a loss that doesn't go away.
The Blakleys have also started a charity called 'Honoring Angels Like Owen'. It is a non-profit organization and aims to develop, promote, foster, and support families who have lost a child.
As per a report, in 2013 alone there were 500 infant deaths in Alabama leaving apart the data on miscarriages and stillbirths.
The remembrance was observed across the world with the International Wave of Light. Candles were lit at 7 pm in different time zones around the world as a tribute.
