Rainbows in Pennsylvania
For those of you in Toronto, PBSO is having their annual Walk to Remember on Sunday Oct. 4th at 2:00 pm. Here is some of the information I was sent:
The "walk" takes about 15 - 20 minutes and will happen "rain or shine".
Meet inside the East gates of Mt. Pleasant Cemetery and walk to The Children's Garden.
When we reach the Children's Garden, there is a short non-demoninational service, which includes some poems read by parents. If you have a favourite poem or one you have written for your baby, please bring it along. Please let us know that you have it with you. You may read it yourself, or ask someone to read it on your behalf if you don't feel it's something you can do yourself.
Parents then have the opportunity to come up to the microphone and give the names of their babies that they are there to remember. After which we have the Dove Release. Followed by refreshments.
The whole thing takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
