Comments: My only child Tarin Rain died 2 days before Cristmas, he was 5months and 10 days old. He was the only person i have ever known that taught me true unconditional love, i never expected anything back from my little boy, but he gave us so much. his short life filled everyone who loved him with so much joy. and now i am filled with so much pain. i wonder everyday how he is doing, who is feeding him his bottle, changing his diaper, all those responsibility's were mine, and now i just have to take care of myself. Am I still a mother? i miss him so much and would give anything to hold him one more time. I love you my little Sneezer wherever you are.

Comments: I lost a daughter,Aimee Jean, 22 years ago on Dec.14,1977.She was a stillbirth, full term, and absolutely beautiful.I carried her knowing she was gone for 6 days before I had her. I almost went crazy. I went on to have two more children after that. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her. I wish there would have been a site like this way back then.

Comments: My sweet Riley, your birthday is coming up in only 4 days!! I dread this day so much, and it is so unfair. This should be a happy day, not a sad day. You should be here with us opening presents and blowing out the candles on your cake. I wonder what you would have wished for? I miss you so much, my arms still ache to hold you!!!! Some days I feel so empty inside, your sister is the only thing that keeps me going. Please watch over her and make sure she is safe, I know that I couldn't handle it if I lost her to. I can't help but wonder what you would look like now, I bet you would be so handsome. I remember when your sister was 3 she was so much fun, I bet you would have been to. Justina always talks about you, she misses you to. She asks me everyday lately if it's your birthday yet so she can send you lots of birthday kisses. Last night when Justina was saying her prayers she looked over at me with the biggest smile on her face, give me a great big hug and said "my brother loves us so much mommy, and he misses us to" so I said "he does?!", and she said "Yep, he just told me so!" so I said "he did?" and she just said "yes mommy, he did" I was just so amazed and happy :), I wanted to keep asking her questions about it, but I didn't because I didn't want her to think I didn't believe her. I think your sister has a very special gift, I just wish I did to. Why can't I see you, hear you or feel you? I wish you would come see me I need you in my life, it feels so empty without you. I dream about you a lot lately, I just wish it wasn't a dream and you were really here. I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY SWEET LITTLE ANGEL!! We will send you lots of birthday hugs and kisses!! Stephanie, mommy of an angel - Riley Daniel (01/30/97 - 03/16/97) stephwilcox@netscape.net

There is a hole in my heart that I know will always be there. I still miss you so very much. The 42 short days that you touched our lives, will always be so special to all of us. I know that you are in heaven with all the other little angels who belonged to my friends in the Northwest Ohio SIDS support group. They have been wonderful. Your picture is on this web site and your poem, "You'll Always Be Gran's First" is in First Person too. Gran will always love you very much!

Things seem a bit more"stressful" as we remember , with tears all the great things that we did with you during those 59 SPECIAL days. It all seems sureal, and like a dream. I miss you more than words can say...and yet knowing that you feel no pain, or the cold rain on your tiny body, brings me comfort. I am breathing in and out, for both of us.

Comments: Hi, my sincerest condolences to everyone that has lost a child. There is no pain like it, and unless you have been through it, you won't understand. My son died 8 years ago, as an infant, and it was such a traumatic experiance for me, and, at times it still is. I will never be the same. I was married at the time, but left after a night in the ER, and went home to Denmark, where I mostly grew up. I had my son there, and he is buried there. I am going home for the first time in 8 years on the 1st of Feb, (I live in Seattle). I am very excited, yet I know that I will be going to my son's grave also for the first time in 8 years. I don't know what it will do to me, will it make me feel better, worse, I just don't know, and I am scared. I just hope that it will give me some kind of closeure. If it reopens all the wounds that I hope are gone, I am screwed. I can just hope that I get the closure that I so desperatly need, just to get on with life. Please just wish me luck, and pray for me, Elisabeth

When he was seven days old my husband and i went to visit him he had a hard breathing we called the nurse and she told us he was ok when i was holding him he started to bled from his nose and mouth the nurse took him from me and told us to go to the waiting room. Two hours later they spoke with us and the baby had a 50/50 chance of surival When i saw him again he was having seziers all the time. Three days later and two surgies later he was died.

His name was Enrique Fernardo Jaimes born January 29,99-Febuary 8,99 He is my angel in heaven. By as the year of his birth is soon it is getting harder to understand why!

Comments: My son Jordan William, died of SIDS on Oct. 23, 1998. He was a week shy of being 5 months old. I am now 8 months pregnant with another child, and lately I have been having nightmares, reliving finding my son not breathing, and the things that took place thereafter. I do not want to be an over protective mother this time around, but I know in my heart I will be. I am terrified to let this baby sleep, or more so for me to have to check on it while it is still sleeping. Is this normal? Is there anything anyone/anything can do to make me snap out of this? If anyone has suggestions, please write to me. Thank you!

My older daughter and son still talk about their sister and I am so glad. We have made memory books for the kids and they write, paste pictures from magazines etc. I have found this to be so healthy for them and myself as well.

Everytime I think of Andrew I feel as if I am being hit repeatedly in the stomach. The night of his death he had been fussy and i had tried everything to get him to sleep he finally fell asleep on his stomach and I took a little nap my mom walked by and patted his bottom and I awoke a few minutes later to find him not breathing. To this day I wish I had done differently and not put him on his stomach. I did not think a little while would matter i guess most parents feel as if it is their fault and I am no exception. I would really like to speak w/some other parents just to have someone to share feelings with please e mail me

Comments: My sweet little baby Katelin would be 22 months old today. We've been missing her dearly for 18 months as of tomorrow morning. A year and a half! I can't believe I managed to keep on living and give birth to her little brother. The morning she died, I couldn't see making it past her funeral. But I did and so did her daddy, her big sister is happy to have a little sibling to hold and play with again. We miss Katie so much still, but we are still finding enjoyment in life. For all those parents who have just recently lost their sweet little babies, I pray for you! Keep living life, try to look toward the future. I know it's hard, but try. Every little step you take towards living again will help you heal, little by little. I miss you Katelin, love mommy.

Don't get me wrong - I think it's wonderful - it has helped me tremendously! I can't understand why this keeps happening. Why isn't someone making the connection? I still can't accept and probably will never accept that the cause is unknown. My son died 15 hours after 4 vaccines. No matter how many times I am told that there is no connection - I simply don't believe it. I have done enough of my own research to know that there could be a connection. My son was perfectly healthy until he was polluted with vaccines and his brain swelled - otherwise known as an anaphylactic shock! Did his brain swell because he went to sleep? I just can't understand.

Comments: I was just reading the story of Grandma Gimmell. It was very interesting reading about a woman that has been through 100 years of life and sounds like a lot more to go. Congratulations Grandma Gimmell and thank you for the informative website. I have been blessed with two wonderful daughters who are ages 7 and 9. Keep up the wonderful work.

Comments: What a great site - unfortunate that we have to have it, but very informative all the same. I too lost my first little baby to SIDS. Amanda Nicole was 3 1/2 months old when she went to Heaven. She was perfectly healthy and just went to sleep one day for a nap and never woke up. I miss her so much. I constantly wonder what she would look like now. I see children the age that she would be - and sometimes I get so sad that I'll never get to watch her grow up. We now have a 2 1/2 year old little girl named Kayley and I wish she could've known her big sister. We miss you Mandi! (Nov 28, 1994 - Mar 21, 1995)

Comments: On August 8, 1999 I gave birth to a beautiful seven pound eight ounce baby. I lost him two days later. We later found out that he died due to a tight knot in his umbilical cord that damaged his kidneys, liver, and brain from lack of oxygen. I wish something could be done to prevent all our babies from dying. I hate to see other people hurting because I know that there is nothing I can do about their pain. To all of you who have lost a baby or babies I am so sorry. To my sweet Dylan Cole, mommy loves you.

Comments: This is my first visit to this site. I lost my third child at 37 weeks. Patrick Thomas Strasser born November 23rd, 1999. The doctors can give no reason why. We will never know why but we can be comforted by knowing that he was our gift from God. Through him we are learning so much about ourselves and each other. Thank you Patrick for your special gift. Your mommy and daddy miss you very much. We wish you were here in our arms. They ache for you. Take care our "Little Angel." Someday we will be together again! Thank you for this web site!

Comments: We lost our son, Kaleb, on November 20, 1999. He was our second child, he would have been five months on November 21st. My two year old watched me give Kaleb C.P.R. the morning I found him. Everytime we see an ambulance he cries that he wants to go in there and find Kaleb. Everyone tells me that time will heal the pain, but I don't see how this much pain can ever be healed. Crysta

Comments: I now know I'm not alone anymore. I lost my daughter (Jessica) on October 16/99, she was 2 days shy of 8 weeks. I know she wasn't in any pain, but what about the rest of us. My 4 1/2 year old watched me perform CPR on his baby sister, while Jessica's twin brother Nicholas, sat in the swing. I know what I saw, and have some kind of idea what my older son saw. My son says "that every night when we're asleep his sister falls from heaven to sleep with him, but she hogs the bed." If anyone wants to chat, just e-mail me. I don't know what I would do without this info on SIDS. Thank-you so much. I have planned a walk-a-thon for the summer of 2000,with a benefit concert to raise money, any ideas, let me know

Comments: I just wanted to send my sympathies to other parents who have suffered pregnancy losses. I have suffered through two miscarriages and time DOES NOT make the pain go away, it only softens it. I am lucky enough to have two beautiful healthy daughters, and I think that somehow because of my losses I appreciate them even more. May God be with you.

Comments: We lost our first born, a daughter named Abby to SIDS November 18th, 1999 during her morning nap at daycare. She was a strong, healthy, happy 3 1/2 month old. It isn't suppose to be this way. We feel empty inside. Abby brought pure joy to our lives. She showed us what unconditional love is all about. How does a person get through this? When will we feel whole, alive and happy agaiin? It is hard to see the future when we struggle to get through each day. If anyone out there can give us any words of comfort please write. Karen

Comments: It has been a little over 1 month since my best friend, Cassie, lost her 3 month old, Sierra Brooke Branstrom. I had mourned for her parent's loss and grief...but, it wasn't until about 2 weeks after Sierra's death, that I began to mourn for the loss of her. I realized that I missed Sierra, and wanted her back,...her beautiful smile, her contagious giggle, and the joy she brought to her mother's eyes. I keep hoping that each day will get easier, that each time I see Cassie, I will see a small part of her soul return. But each day, I see my friend slip farther and farther away from me...and am angry. Not at Cassie, but at the unfairness of it all. And wrapped around that anger is such pain and loss...for although I was not Sierra's relative, I loved her dearly. I miss you, Sierra. Send your Mommy angel kisses in her sleep and quiet her dreams with your sweet whispers.

I am astounded to see and realize how many deaths there are like this. My sister received a packet of info on SIDS from a local support group before the funeral. Unbelievable how quick people are to reach out with comforting arms.
