People who have lost children gathered for a candlelight vigil in Bedford-Stuyvesant Sunday during Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

The group came together to offer support and advice, as well as share their own experiences of losing a child.

The event featured poetry, personal narratives and prayer.

An official from the Administration for Children's Services was also at the vigil to support the cause and provide important information on how parents can prevent accidents from happening.
