On October 15th, families affected by the loss of pregnant or an infant, join together, near and far, to observe a candle lighting vigil. On this day, the ‘loved and longed for’ infants are honored in these ceremonies. Beginning at 7 pm, the ceremony culminates in a world-wide Lights of Love International Wave of Light that spans the globe.
The day has been observed since 2002 and blossomed from the original observance throughout the whole month of October, that was established in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan. This event helps to raise awareness, “and promote greater research and understanding to aide in the creation and establishment of programs, resources and services; that support and provide assistance to survivors of baby loss and their families, enabling them to overcome their trauma and integrate their bereavement into their life in a healthy, helpful, healing manner”.
Join us on October 15th, in honoring the precious memories of these lives, that will always be held dearly in our hearts.
"Aubrielle's Hope" is a 501c3 nonprofit that was started in memory and honor of Aubrielle Hope Cook. Aubrielle was born on April 13, 2016. She lived for only 7 hours, but her life made an impact on thousands of other lives through the sharing of her story by her mother, Beth Cook. Her story was shared and viewed by over 600,000 people on her facebook page. But, that wasn't enough. Inspired by the vision of her beloved aunt, Katie Barnfield, "Aubrielle's Hope" was created. Katie wanted Aubrielle's life to have a lasting legacy. She envisioned supporting families as they traveled the same difficult path that she had been down with her family surrounding the passing of Aubrielle. With that, "Aubrielle's Hope" was formed. Our mission is to be one glimmer of hope and love in a devastating situation of loss. With the mounting bills that come with NICU stays, medical interventions, and funeral expenses, it is our goal to alleviate some of that burden by offering grieving families monetary donations to take some of the strain from the cost of funeral, cremation, and burial expenses after the death of a child. In this way, our precious Aubrielle will be remembered and her life will be used to make a difference, like the difference she made in all of our lives in only 7 perfect hours.
