October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Nearly one in four pregnancies results in loss. It is often a lonely grief, and pain is overlooked or treated insensitively by those who do not comprehend that a person, a child, a loved one, has been lost. Women and families often grieve alone and in silence.

In December 2015, Ella Marie lived 3-1/2 incredible days with her twin brother Lennox and their family. After their loss, Erin and Brad Hamilton looked for a place to honor and share their grief with others, but could not find an event like this near SW Michigan. It is the hope of the Hamiltons that the Inaugural Ella’s Rainbow Walk to Remember gives other families a place to honor their own grief and losses.
