About the Remembrance Walk
The NILMDTS Remembrance Walk, ” Our Journey Together” is for parents, family members, and friends to come together to remember a precious baby who has died due to miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS, neonatal or any type of pregnancy or infant loss.
It is an opportunity to bring honor to our babies and healing to our hearts. The Remembrance Walk also ensures future support to families who will sadly walk in our shoes one day.
“This was our first year participating in the event and we weren’t sure what to expect. We all agreed that it was an amazing experience. This event was well planned and thoughtfully executed providing an atmosphere of support and love.”
The NILMDTS Remembrance Walk includes a presentation with readings, music, and speakers to honor your baby. During the event, each baby is honored by having his or her name read aloud with the optional release of a butterfly. Following the presentation participants will journey together for an optional one mile reflective walk.
“This was a truly amazing event. Being surrounded by others that just ‘get it’ and having our babies recognized was priceless. It was very emotional but healing. I truly appreciated hearing my daughter’s name, seeing it on a sign and being able to release a butterfly in her honor. Truly beautiful!!!“
NILMDTS is offering an opportunity for anyone who cannot attend the NILMDTS Walk in person to participate in the NILMDTS Virtual Walk. We conduct an online presentation as if you were at the actual walk including music, readings, and the reading of baby names.
“We aren’t reminded of sadness every time someone brings up our baby. We are reminded of love. “
