Families share hope in walk remembering lost infants

Walking to remember those gone

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Hundreds of families gathered Saturday at NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital to remember babies who died too soon.

Moms and dads shared their stories, and a list of baby names was read at the 11th Annual Share Hope Walk of Remembrance.

Rebecca Propst lost her baby girl and sees the walk of remembrance to gather with other families who have suffered the same loss.

“This day is a really great day for people who have had a loss, who can come together, who have experienced the same things with each other,” she said. “Meeting and greeting, meeting new people, being able to go through the grief process together.”

The day’s events culminated with families attaching messages to their lost infants to balloons and then releasing them.
