National Children's Memorial Day 2014

 
Candles will be lit at 7:00 pm in all time zones so that there will be constant light around the world in memory of our children in Heaven.
 
The 2014 National Children's Memorial Day is Sunday, December 14th. At 7:00 pm in each time zone, people will be lighting candles to remember all children lost.

The World Census Bureau estimates that in 2008 over 350,000 babies were born in the world every day = 147 babies will be born with CDH every day. That is OVER 53,000 BABIES BORN EACH YEAR WITH CDH. Over 26,000 do not survive. Help CHERUBS fight CDH.

Over a half million babies have been affected by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia since 2000. This means that over a quarter of a million babies have have been lost to this devastating birth defect. Over 800 babies are lost to CDH in the United States alone each year.

Featured Cherub: Joshua Moran Lopez

Featured Cherub of the week is cherub Joshua Moran Lopez.  Joshua is the son of Sam and Jennifer Moran Lopez and has one brother, Jacob.  In honor of Joshua’s 10th birthday back in October, his mom put together a video of his life and to raise CDH Awareness. 

His mom wrote this message about the video she created for his birthday, “10 years ago, at this very time we were headed to Emanuel hospital for the birth of our first child! Something I had always dreamed of. Every parents dream come true! But for us, it was different. We were excited, but there were so many unknowns. I have to say, the second half of my pregnancy was very, very stressful. I cried every day, the fear that the doctors put in me that my son would not make it was very hard to comprehend. I was young, wanted so badly to be a mother, was carrying my first child, yet I didn’t even know if I would even get to bring him home with us. Leading up to this day, every day for four months it was all I could think about. I spent a lot of time on the internet looking up stories about other CDH babies. There were more sad stories than happy endings. I didn’t know what to think. I knew the only thing we could do was continue praying and trusting that God had a plan, in hopes that that plan was what I was hoping and praying it would be. Looking back on that day, even though I had been worrying all day every day, the day of a Joshua’s birth, I felt at peace, like everything was going to be okay. I trusted in God that He had it all under control. Looking back at that day, I really don’t think I ever worried or thought about the fact that he might not make it. I felt at peace that he was going to be okay.
