You are in the section for Holidays/Angelversary. This is a word created by a fellow bereaved parent and contributed to our Dictionary of Loss as follows:

Angelversary n. 1. This word denotes the annual date of a child's death. This day is just as important to a bereaved parent as a birthday, and stillbirth parents are marking both birth and death on the same day. So it is different than a regular birthday. While "anniversary" might work, that often seems to celebratory a word for this kind of day. Angelversary is our family's answer to describing this most difficult day.
