Star Legacy Foundation's Stillbirth Summit ⭐️️

The annual Stillbirth Summit put on by Star Legacy Foundation was held in Minnesota over this past weekend. This is an event focused on stillbirth research and prevention, with the most passionate stillbirth researchers from around the world, who I'm so thankful for! They are needed. It means a lot to me to know people are taking this seriously and realizing that it's not okay that healthy babies are dying for no known reason right around their due dates). I hope to make it myself one year to the Summit.

They honored nearly 1,300 babies who were stillborn with a big sign full of their names that says "we will always remember," as well as gold stars hanging from the ceiling, each with the name and birthdate of a stillborn baby who will always be deeply missed and loved by their families. These names were submitted from around the world.

Thank you so much to Danielle who was able to attend the event and sent me a photo of my Lily Katherine Allen-Ball's name up close on the sign! And I heard that our stars will be mailed to each family as a keepsake. Lily's friend Lillian Judith Joy is right above her on the sign, which makes me smile. Her mommy is a dear friend of mine. It brings tears to my eyes to know my little girl is a part of this and hopefully in the future, stillbirth will be no more. ❤️ ⭐️️  

I enjoyed reading this blog post that was shared on the Star Legacy Foundation Facebook page, from the perspective of someone who attended the Summit.
