Our 4th Annual Kick-Off Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month event will be held on Sunday, September 30, from 6:00-7:30 pm in the Meinder’s Garden Terrace at the Northeast corner of the Myriad Botanical Gardens.
We are excited to partner with the OKC-County Health Department to assist our families who have lost children by remembering and honoring them with bubbles and a balloon release ceremony. A family near and dear to our non-profit, Nicole, Daniel and Emma Nash will be sharing their story as we remember their sweet boy James. We will also have candles to send home for families to light in private at 7:00 pm on October 15, National Wave of Light Day. The entire family is welcome as we will be serving a light dinner and will also have a professional face painter and lawn activities for the kids to enjoy before our balloon release ceremony.Our event is FREE of charge and open to everyone, extended family included, who wishes to attend.
Lastly, we will remind everyone the location of our Kids Joining Eternity’s bench that we donated to the Gardens. We wanted to give back to our community and provide a year-round family oriented place for those families who did not have a graveside to go to so they could honor those family members that have passed on before them. We feel the location is perfect and again, we appreciate Maureen and the Gardens for their assistance in getting this installed.
