A way for your voice to be heard....

First Candle is working hard to get the Stillbirth Awareness & Research Act bill passed in Washington, DC. One section of the bill recommends that states pass the Certificate of Birth Resulting in Stillbirth bill.

On March 25th, bereaved parents and other infant health advocates from around the country will be coming together on Capitol Hill to lobby for important legislation related to stillbirth, SIDS and SUID (sudden unexpected infant death.) They want your help in creating a Baby Memorial Album which will leave a lasting reminder to Congress why these bills are important.

Submission deadline is March 10th.

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. I am hoping that someone from NY will be there to help push legislation thru! I have a very good friend who is very well versed at the CBRSB. She got the bill passed in OK last year. If you need assistance please let me know! I will pass your info on to her! Best wishes!
