i know i havent' been on here in a long long time, but i just wanted to share with you
it's always bothered me that Oct. 15th wasnt realized here in canada - just the states. i had called my local MPP's office and talked about it, she gave me numbers of people to contact and i never did at the time
but i'm happy to say that someone else (in ontario anyway) has, and it is now a recognized in Ontario
i'm sooooooooooooo happy!!!!!
just wanted to share!!!
this was the email: (from the facebook Pregnancy and infant loss group)
Subject: Oct. 15th - Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day being reconized in Ontario
A few months ago I sent an email to my local city MPP (Monique Smith) about making October 15th "Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day" official here in Ontario, Canada...I am very excited to announce that today I recieved a letter from the Minister's Office stating that they have discussed & reviewed my letter and w! ill be passing October 15th as "Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day" here in Ontario, Canada.
They informed me that they wil get back in touch with me when the news is released to the media and announced to the public.
This goes to show that persistance and having faith in what we believe in can pay off in the end and that just when we think that some people involved in the Government doesn't care they go ahead and prove us wrong (some of the time)
Thank you to everyone again for your support and CONGRATULATIONS ONTARIO!!!
