Forever Loved Wall: Honoring Our Children’s Memory

When a child loses his parent, they are called an orphan. When a spouse loses her or his partner, they are called a widow or widower. When parents lose their child, there isn’t a word to describe them.

This month recognizes the loss so many parents experience across the United States and around the world. ~Ronald Reagan, 1988

This month marks awareness for Pregnancy and Infant Loss, with October 15th being the official day of remembrance. There are so many families that have the devastating experience of losing a child during pregnancy or after birth. Often times, the suffering is done in silence, but we want you to know that those precious lives {and you} are never forgotten.

However short their time here on this earth, they have surely made an incredible impact on your heart and your life that will be forever marked with immense love for that child. We want to honor our babies’ precious lives with you. We’ve created the Forever Loved Memory Wall as a permanent page on our site and to serve as a reminder that our children are never forgotten.

On the wall, you’ll find the names and birthdates/due dates of those little ones we will always remember; whether lost during pregnancy or shortly after birth.

If you’d like to add your child to our Forever Loved Memory Wall, simply fill out this Google Form below or email info(at)redstickmomsblog(dot)com and we’ll do our best to add your name within 24 hours. We’ll have a special sidebar image on display throughout the month of October, but this Memory Wall will be left up year round.

Ericka is originally a New Orleans gal who was raised to begin many dishes with a roux. Since 2011, she has happily embraced the Red Stick life with her husband of seven years, Tyler. Although she met her husband at an LSU game after her car broke down, they both attended Northwestern State University where she graduated with a Business Administration degree. After graduation, she and Tyler took a leap of faith and tied the knot. She dabbled in the corporate scene but eventually returned to school to pursue her passion for teaching and earned a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. She taught at an inner-city school in Baton Rouge for 3 years where she gained a family of students and colleagues alike. She’s traded in her beloved Expo pens and clipboard to stay home with her sweet and adventurous one-year-old son, Cullen. She is so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the sisterhood of fellow moms. Motherhood has been the best roller coaster she’s ever been on and even at the most challenging times, she tries to remember to embrace the chaos and “bless this mess” mentality. Ericka loves a good conversation, coffee, empowering other women {because we can all use a little encouragement}, laughing, baking and making memories with her family.
