We asked participants to send us photos from the OC Walk to Remember event and the emails keep coming in! You are welcome to leave a comment below with a link to an album you would like to share or email me kfuruta@ocwalktoremember.org and it will be posted here. Thank you! Displayed are your pictures from October 5, 2013:

Barbara & Aaron Dieppa celebrate Ava

“Last year, on Oct 5, 2012 we delivered our daughter stillborn due to unknown causes . She was 6 months and had no previous problems. I wasn’t even sure of I could get out of bed this day and was anxious about all the emotions I would feel. But instead we got up, and celebrated the fact of how far we have healed, and celebrated the memory of our firstborn daughter. I am currently 9 months pregnant with our rainbow baby , Leila due on Nov 2. Your organization is wonderful, and has all the resources available and is helpful to refer others to who have experienced such a loss.”


Raquel Castellon & family celebrate Lucy


Jessica McDonald & her husband celebrate Jonah

“On the day of the walk, it had been exactly a month since we lost our son Jonah through miscarriage, and it was a great way to spend the anniversary of his death–to be around others with similar experiences, and be around others who know we are still parents to our child even if they are in Heaven. It felt wonderful to have his name read aloud at the ceremony, it made him feel more real. Thank you for this walk, and to all those who helped with it!”

Melissa Mayfield & family celebrate Sophia

“This was our first year attending the OC Walk to Remember. We were touched to earn a space for our team to come together and honor our daughter, Sophia, and all the other babies. It was a day of healing, support, and love.”
