Several dozen families showed up Tuesday night at Heights Fellowship Church for a special service to remember all babies lost, even during pregnancy.
The event was organized by a group known as PILA... which stands for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness.
This was the 7th year for this annual service.
PILA offers support to anyone who has lost a child, no matter when that loss occurred.

October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month as decreed by President Ronald Reagan in 1988. One in four pregnancies end in loss and those who have lost generally grieve in silence.
The City of Lubbock will be recognizing October as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month at the City Council Meeting, Tuesday, October 9, 2018.
Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness (PILA) Lubbock invites you to our Seventh Annual Memorial Service as we remember all babies lost to pregnancy or infant loss. We are pleased to welcome Rachel Lewis, a well-known blogger in pregnancy loss circles, as the keynote speaker. www.thelewisnote.com
