Nearly 80 people attended the recent SHARE Wings of Hope Angel Garden Blessing & Butterfly Release at Edward Hospital in Naperville.

SHARE is a support group for those who have experienced a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or neonatal death. The garden opened in 2010 as a place for parents who have lost a baby to remember and celebrate their child's life.

SHARE also coordinates special events to raise awareness, including an annual Walk to Remember. The 2018 walk will take place on Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Riverwalk Grand Pavilion in Naperville.
