More families are affected by pregnancy and infant loss than most even realize.  In honor of October being Pregnancy and Infant Awareness Month a local Pregnancy/Infant Loss group "Footprints on my Heart" will host the 11th annual awareness event.


On Sunday, October 14, at 3 pm at Owensboro Memorial Gardens off Hwy 144 right past Reid's Orchard.

Laura Casey and Chasity Conder are the beautiful souls behind this event.  Laura suffered multiple miscarriages early in life which left her feeling empty and alone.  Chasity also suffered the loss of sweet "Carson." Make plans to attend this beautiful event.  They will have a memorial walk to honor the lives of all the precious sweet little ones who were gone too soon.  There will be a roll call of names, balloon release, families will receive a rose,  and there will be a guest speaker.  Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited.  This event is for anyone who has experienced miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS or other infant death. T-shirts have been ordered and will include babies' names on the back (over 200). There is still time to make sure your child's name can be included in the program by calling/texting Laura at 270-903-3080.

Come walk in honor of these sweet babies or someone close to your own heart.

The group asks that you head over to their facebook page and like it :)
