Pregnancy and Infant Loss Network is proud to host Canada’s largest gathering for families who have suffered the loss of their pregnancy or their baby.

The Butterfly Release is an uplifting remembrance- It is a time for families to reflect and honour their baby’s life, no matter how short, in the company of friends and family. Our Butterfly Release and Family Picnic is uniquely positioned to support the invisible mourners of infant loss; the children, the grandparents, and any other friends and family members who were touched by this tragic loss. This event is one of the ways PAIL Network seeks to provide hope and enlightenment to help families incorporate their loss into their lives.

WHEN: SUNDAY, JUNE 4, 2017, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
