Comments: My sweet angel baby Stephanie Ann... We made it! Yesterday 2-28 was the one year mark of your return to play in the clouds. We went away for a few day's. It was much easier to be away. And comforting to come home today. I lit several candles for you. Each with a different meaning. The hardest one to light was the candle of my love for you. You are so deeply missed. And it is unreal that you have been gone from my arms for one year already. As I'm sure you know, your big sister misses you terribly, as well. I'm not sure how we have made it through this first year. Perhaps it will be the same for the next... we will make it from our love and our precious memories of your smile. Thank you Stephanie for guiding us through this and for being my angel. I am a truely blessed mommy. I love and miss you! Stephanie Ann 12-02-98 to 02-28-99

Comments: My best friend lost her baby, Sierra Brooke, to SIDS on December 1, 1999. March 1st will be the 3 month anniversary of her death. She has been gone almost as long as she had been alive. Each day seems to get harder for her mother, Cassie. I pray that I will know how to comfort her. She is so afraid that Sierra will be forgotten...so I write this in Sierra Brooke's memory, 8/23/99 - 12/1/99...so that she will know that she is not. We all miss you, Sierra! I am taking care of your Mommy the best that I know how. Please bless her with angel kisses in her dreams.

Comments: I have looked over your site and it is what I am looking for to continue my work on SIDS. This is a horrible and painful disorder and I have choosen to research it for those two reasons. No one should be put through the pain and suffering of losing their children especially to something that one can not give a reason for why they have died. Keep up the research. I will continue to visit here regulary in order to see what else has been updated. To everyone who has gone through the pain, God Bless you and you are in my prayers.

Comments: My baby died at 2 1/2 days old. His name is Andrew. He was a full term baby boy who weighed 8lbs 15oz and scored a 9/10 on his apgar score. In the early morning Andrew started to fuss. I tried to console him as any mother would. He would not nurse from me and was iritable at first. I called the nurse to come in and help me and she told me not to worry, he was fine. She said his temperature was low and took him to put him under the warmer. When she brought him back to be his was much calmer and was moaning and groaning in the bassinet. So I picked him up to rock him and tried again to feed him. He was not interested. The nurse said he was just tired. So I continued to rock him. At about 4:30am. we tried to feed him again. By this time he was lethargic. So the nurse force fed him formula. he took the formula but shortly after spit it up. When the dr. came in at 8:30 am to release me and Andrew to go home, I told him about my night with Andrew and felt that he was not doing well. His comment was that Andrews color was good. But also, by this time he started breathing very fast and his little hands were tremoring. By 11:30 am the nurse took him into the NICU where they could monitor him more closely. His condition was deteriorating very quickly. They started an IV of antibiotics. Also he did not urinate during this whole time. I miss my baby so much. I need some answers as to what happened to my son. The coroner said there was no anatomical reason for his death and there was no sepsis or meningitis. So what was it then? What killed my son? If anyone reading this message has had a similar experience please e-mail me at Andrewsstar@aol.com

Comments: We lost our Jacob on January 10, 2000. He was not in our care at the time. I would like to tell every expectant parent to find a way to stay home with their children and not send them to day care. I believe that Jacob would still be with us, if he were in my care. I found this song by a Christian singer, Twila Paris, very comforting. "A visitor from heaven, if only for a while. A gift of love to be returned. We think of you and smile. A visitor from heaven, Accompanied by grace. Reminding of a better love, and of a better place. With aching hearts and empty arms, we send you with a name. It hurts so much to let you go, but we're so glad you came. A visitor from heaven, if only for a day. We thank Him for the time He gave, And now it's time to say. We trust you to the Father's love, and to His tender care. Held in the everlasting arms, and we're so glad you're there. With breaking hearts and open hands, we send you with a name. It hurts so much to let you go, but we're so glad you came. We're so glad you came." To Jacob-I love you.

Comments: Well, yesterday was Valentines day. I went to Conner's grave and left him a boquet of baby breathes and released a huge white teddy bear balloon with messages for him. It was yet another first holiday without him. A holiday about love, yet I wasn't able to be with one of my special loves and will never be able to again. I have been reading a lot about SIDS lately on the internet and most of it seems several years old. Here in the Kansas City metro area there were 12 SIDS deaths from Thanksgiving to the end of the year (99). Several local news shows did reports on it. They said SIDS seemed to be on the rise again. I just feel really cheated. I have read about all the risks. Conner always slept on his back. He was a large baby almost 11 pounds at birth. No one in our family or friends smoke. So he was never around that. I was 36 when he was born. I didn't or don't use drugs. Only thing going against him was that he was a boy (60% of SIDS victims are boys) and it was winter (most deaths occur in the winter). I just always thought if he slept on his back he would be fine. I never really worried about SIDS with any of my children since I did everything they said to. So the 'BACK TO SLEEP' campaign didn't work for Conner. It seems you can only try to do your best, but then that may not even be enough. It just kills me that there wasn't something that could have prevented his death. I use to sing "You are my Sunshine" to him, I did to all of my children. However God decicded to take one of my sunbeams away from me. So it will never be as bright and shiny as it was on Dec. 23, 1999. That day at 11:45 a permanent cloud was put into my sky. I guess some day the sun will come back out for me, but it will never be the same. Conner, I miss you so much. I hug the little sleeper you wore the day before you died all the time trying to get your little baby feel & smell. I LOVE YOU!!!! My sunny, funny little valentine heres angel hugs and butterfly kisses. Mommy (Oooooh!!)

THE BABYSITTER APPLIED CPR AND HER HUSBAND CALLED 911. THEY GOT HIM STABLE ENOUGH TO SEND HIM TO THE HOSPITAL, BUT THE DOCTORS JUST COULDN'T GET HIM TO START BREATHING ON HIS OWN. WE ARE STILL IN SHOCK. HE WAS SUCH A BIG HEALTHY LITTLE BOY. HE ALWAYS SLEPT ON HIS BACK. WE AND HIS DAYCARE PROVIDER DID EVERYTHING LIKE WE WERE SUPPOSE TO. WHAT HAPPENED? SANTA WAS COMING EARLY FOR US, DUE TO TRAVELING. THIS WAS OUR CHRISTAMS EVE AT HOME. SANTA HAD SUCH A HEART BREAKING TIME. OUR OLDEST SON NOLAN (5) WAS WORRIED ABOUT CONNER'S PRESENTS. HE WAS AFRAID SANTA WOULDN'T REMEMBER HIM NOW. SO SANTA DELIVERED THEM. IT WAS SO HARD TO OPEN HIS PRESENTS THAT MORNING. HE DIDN'T EVEN GET TO HAVE HIS FIRST CHRISTMAS WITH US. HE WAS BURIED 12/27/99 WITH HIS POOH BEAR THAT WE HAD GOTTEN HIM FOR CHRISTMAS. SINCE THEN WE HAVE HAD TO GO INTO THE YEAR 2000 WITHOUT HIM. IT WASN'T A HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR US. I HAVE ALSO HAD MY BIRTHDAY SINCE THEN WHICH DOESN'T SEEM FAIR TO ME. I HAD ANOTHER, BUT HE DOESN'T EVEN GET TO HAVE 1. NOW VALENTINES IS COMING UP. ITS JUST SO HARD!!!! MY ARMS ACHE TO HOLD HIM AND MY HEART IS SO HEAVY. ITS STRANGE HOW ONE SO LITTLE CAN EFFECT SO MANY PEOPLE IN SO MANY WAYS. HE WAS SUCH A GOOD BABY AND SO SMART FOR A LITTLE GUY NOT EVEN 3 MONTHS YET. EVEN THOUGH HE COULDN'T TALK YET HE TRIED TO COMMUNICATE WITH US AND IT WAS SO CUTE. WE WISH NOW WE HAD VIDEO TAPED HIM DOING IT, BUT WHO WAS TO KNOW HE WOULDN'T BE THERE. THE HARDEST PART IS SEEING OTHER LITTLE BABY BOYS AROUND HIS SIZE THAT KIND OF LOOK LIKE HIM AND ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE IN LITTLE BLUE OR TEAL SLEEPERS. THATS WHAT HE WORE MOST OF THE TIME. I JUST FALL TO PIECES. IF I DIDN'T HAVE MY OTHER 2 KIDS, NOLAN & SYDNEY (3) I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO. I JUST WANTED TO SHARE SOME OF MY MEMORIES WITH OTHERS THAT WOULD UNDERSTAND.

I am reading articles and studying articles and reading articles written by other doctors. if any of you out there read this and are able to help me....please e-mail me at mt e-mail address. and my heart goes out to all the people who have lost someone. I have studied about this cause and I have spoke to people who have lost an infant. It is heartbreaking and I know that I haven't felt the pain that they go through and i pray that i won't. I also pray for everyone else who does have a child. The only info i can give at this point, being a high school student, is that dont go around buying expensive machines and cribs and walkers just because you think your child will be safe in them. SIDS is not only caused by these machines and cribs, it can be anything. Just pray a lot and watch your child. Keep an eye on them at all times.

She is my joy and I am so thankful to have her. Today my tears don't fall as often as compared to that 1st year and living has become beautiful again. But today, the memories were heavy and I wept with sorrow once more for my Sean.I don't expect it to be my last tear...they will always be endless. The grief is farther in back of me today...God and time do wonders for a broken heart.

Comments: I am so glad that that there are sites like these for griefing familys. My son Michael died December 03, 1979 at age 2 months, 28 days and still not a day goes by that I still don't miss him. Places like these are even a great help for me after all these years. Hopefully some day we won't need these sites. My heart goes out to all of the family's who suffered resent losses and you are in my prayers. The pains never leaves is just becomes barrable because we will never forget our child.

Comments: For the love of DJ I wanted to share our story. We lost our first child nine months after we married. Because we were pushing 40 we had decided that we would probably not have children. Days after our second anniversary we discovered once again that I was pregnant. Dad was delighted. My parents were thrilled with the idea of being grandparents after several miscarriages with my brother. I pulled my career to a halt and began acting "grumpy" as every pregnant women should. My husband laughed and said "yes ma'm" when I was in one of my moods. Becasue of several risk factors, ie: age, RH neg, high blood pressure, etc., every precaution was taken. Weekly visits to my OB showed a perfectly healthy baby. Tragidy struck on January 12. We went for or regular check-up and to find out the sex of our baby. The audio did not detect a heartbeat (7 days earlier it was strong), U/S did not detect a heartbeat and finally a vaginal U/S confirmed our worst fears -- once again something had gone horribly wrong. No hearbeat, my uterus was shrinking, the amnionitic fluid was low and our world STOPPED. A week later, on my father's b-day, we were induced. After 24 hours of back labor I delivered our baby boy DJ (named after his dad). A perfect little boy, with all his fingers and toes. His color was good and his shape and size were right or schedule. Why has his heart stopped? How can something so small and innocent not have a chance to live. I held him knowing that this was the last time. The pain was to great and my family was crushed. We can only hold him in our hearts and pray that he knows how much he was loved. I miss my baby. Please wait DJ as one day you will see mom & dad again.

Comments: Bud and I went to your grave yesterday, 2/5/00. We brought you some red carnations for your birthday 2/9/99. Your picture is on your grave and it looks so sweet. Now everyone can see what a beautiful child you are. I just wish you were still alive so I could give you some candy and toys. You would be walking by now I'm sure. We miss you everyday. I love you and you are forever in our hearts and thoughts. Love Nanny, In memory of Zachary Wayne Burlette 2/9/99-6/25/99.

Comments: I am so thankful to this website and the information it continues to give. We lost our first born, a son, 5 years ago to SIDS and as many people, we are still searching for an "answer" as to why. In some ways it is so sad that there even has to be this website, if only there was a cure or an answer of the terrifying words "S.I.D.S.", but hopefully someday there will be! At least I feel like the most up-to-date and accurate information is found in this website. There are so many myths and wrong information out there, but at least we can come to this website and try to find some comfort. Best wishes to all the parents/families/friends out there who have unfornately had to endure such a terrible tragedy in their lives from SIDS. Hopefully, someday there won't be other parents who have to join our "family", but for us who are in this "family", we are survivors together. If anyone ever feels the need to talk, feel free to email us. The Bryant Family - In memory of our precious son, Joseph William Bryant, 07/18/94 - 12/01/94.

Comments: I just wanted to share this poem that was sent to me when my 2 1/2 month old baby, Matthew Leslie Wray, passed away in September last year - " When God calls little children, to dwell with him above, We mortals sometimes question, the wisdom of his love. For no heartache compares with, the death of one small child Who does so much to make our world seem wonderful and mild. Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to his fold, So He picks a rosebud before it can grow old. God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but a few, To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view. Believing this is difficult, still somehow we must try, The saddest word mankind knows, will always be "Goodbye". So when a child departs, we who are left behind, Must realise God loves children, Angels are hard to find." My heart goes out to all who face this great loss

As I hold my precious memories close to me, I am greatful for the time we did have together. I love and miss you. Kerrie told me of an angel baby new to the clouds, please give this baby a special kiss and let mommy know that all babies in heaven are safe and at peace. Lisa...
