Comments: Children up to 2 years of age are dying from sids....why are they not recognized as sids victims? Research should be made available in this area. Too many mothers who have children over the age of one that have died from sids are left alone...not included where they belong also. Please do something to correct this horrible oversight.

Comments: Hello Skylar, oh how mommy misses you. I love you sooo much. Lord what I wouldn't do to be able to hold you one more time. I would give my life to be able to that. We are still investigating things and may have to do another examination on you to find out exactly what happened to you that day. I just can't except the fact that you died for no reason or for no reason anyone can tell me. I feel that something happened that day and I can't rest until I found out for sure if it was SIDS or not. I want to do you justice love bug. I wish now you would have been with me when you left for heaven, at least then I could have held you for the last time when you were so warm and not like you were. I wouldn't give up that last chance to hold you, but it should not have been the way it was. We all miss you baby girl. You will always be my little Love Bug and I will be with you again. Your headstone finally is in with your little picture on it, it is so beautiful. Tell Grandma & Grandpa to hold you close and kiss you for me and know that I love you all. Mommy, Daddy and big brother Layne. Skylar May Cheney 6/28/99-10/18/99 XOXOXOXOXOXOX

Comments: Yesterday was the 2nd anniversary of my beautiful baby Christopher's death due to SIDS. It was harder even than last year because Christopher now has a baby sister that turned 5 months old on the anniversary of his death. She has already lived one month longer than he did. She is sick with some kind of virus for the 3rd time in her short life. Even though for some reason I don't really fear SIDS this time around I fear everything else. Big brother Brendan just wants his Mommy to be happy. Christopher, we all love and miss you very much. Did you catch the kisses we blew to you? Thinking of you always, Mommy

Comments: In loving memory of my little ANGEL, Christopher Eric....I lost my son at the age of 5 months and 29 days old. He was born as healthy as could be on March 15, 1988. On September 13,1988, to my shocking and horrifying disbelief, I found my son in his crib. I to this day, have never been able to bypass the feelings of guilt and the "what ifs". We just celebrated his 12th birthday last week.It was very hard to pass by that day, as Christopher has 2 sister's and a little brother.All of which have birthdays from January to March. I will frequent this site very often to read and hopefully talk to some other mom's about the losses we all share. GOD BLESS THE ANGELS..........

Comments: My sweet angel Riley, three years ago today was the last day that I spent with you. I miss you more then I have the words to express. I keep trying to remember all of the sweet memories of you but they are clouded by the morning that I found you. All I can seem to remember is the sheer terror that I felt! I want to erase this memory out of my head, so I can see more clearly the memories that I want to remember. For quite sometime I was able to block this vision out completely, but now for some reason, it's back, in my dreams and every time I try to remember your sweet face all I can see is the way you looked when I found you. I keep replaying the night before you passed away and that horrible morning over and over in my head. I remember that you where so funny that night, you woke up about three times, each time I tried to feed you but you wouldn't eat, you just wanted to play. So I sat a played with you for a while each time and eventually you would drift back off to sleep and I would lay you back down and go back to sleep myself. The last time that you woke up was around 2:00am, I remember I was so tired, all I could think of was getting you to go back to sleep, (now I wish I would have kept you awake) so I just took you to bed with me and played with you for about 20 minutes I guess and then you fell asleep forever! I wish I would have know, that, that was the last time that I would feel your warm touch, smell your sweet smell and see your last smile! I can't stop thinking about all of the "what if's, or if I would have only's" You usually only woke up once a night, if that, to eat, but for some reason you woke up more on this night. I would like to believe that it was because you knew it would be your last night with me, if that is true, I don't know, but it sure does make me feel better to think so. Your big sister Justina talks about you so much, (I just love it) she loves and misses you too. I really think that she is the only thing that has kept me going! Without you here I know that I will never fill whole again, but I thank God everyday for letting me be your mommy, even if it was only for a little while!! I would do it all over again, if I had the chance. We will be loving and missing you..... until we meet again, love always, Mommy and Justina In memory of my angel Riley Daniel (01/30/97 - 03/16/97)

Comments: Its been 15months since our Sweet Baby Danika passed away due to SIDS. The baby I carry now will never know its older sister. The doctor is inducing me tomarrow. I'm scared to death of losing another baby. But I never tell anyone because I don't want them to worry about me. Sweet Baby Danika was born September 23, 1998. and died December 19, 1998. Danika's daddy and I got married on what would have been her 1st birthday. We did it in memory of her. Its was on a Thursday and there were alot of people at the wedding considering it was a weekday. We had family from one coast to the other there. Still anything that I do I keep thinking of my baby and what she would be like. What we would be doing. Like any other parent who has been through this. I would do anything to get her back. I love her so much. I have her pictures all over our living room. Eventually when we get a different house with and extra room I'm going to set up a room just of her stuff a memory room. Sweet Baby Danika mommy and daddy love you very much and miss you very much. Tomarrow you will have a baby brother or sister and they will always be told about you. I'm going to keep your memory alive and your pictures up. People try to tell me to pack away your things. But that is because they don't understand what it is like to lose a baby. I hope one day they will have a cure for SIDS so now one will ever have to go through what your daddy and I have, and all the other parents have. I LOVE YOU and think of you every day. I hope your Unlce Cory is taking care of you. Cory was my brother who died of SIDS 27 yrs ago. I was not born yet but it feels like I've known him.

That come and smile, and stay a while, then pass like flakes of snow. The dear, wee, baby faces that the world has never known, but mothers hide, so tender eyed, deep in their hearts alone. I love to think that somewhere, in the country we call Heaven, the land most fair of anywhere will unto them be given. A land of little faces very little, very fair. And each of us shall know her own, And cleave unto it there. Happy Birthday angel face....Mommy Loves You!! xoxoxoxoxoxox

Comments: I did not have a SIDS death, but had a stillbirth 22years ago. I still feel the pain of losing my daughter, and everyday wonder what she would be like had she lived. I had no indication that Aimee was in any type of distress, one day I woke up, could not feel her moving and I just knew. How, I don't know, but I knew she was gone. I called my doctor and he pooh poohed me, saying I was jumping to conclusions. He said babies do quiet down before birth, and since she was about due to be born, he thought that she was getting ready for the birth. The next morning, I called the doctor back and lied so he would see me; I told him I had fallen on some ice. My sister took me to his office, he put the ultrasound on me, and said just as cold as could be, "yes, the baby is dead", and walked out. My husband was furious, he called the doctor that evening and asked what would be done; the doctor said that he wanted nature to take its course and that sooner or later I would go into labor. So we waited. After several days, I began feeling sick, like I had the flu. My husband called the doctor again, and demanded that he do something, the doctor refused. We were at our wits' end, we didn't know what to do; I called a friend of mine that told me she was sure her doctor would help. So we called him, and he told us to come over right away. He did some blood work and the reason I was sick was because of the baby. She was slowly poisoning my system. I was admitted to the hospital immediately and put on a pitocin drip. The next day, Dec. 14, I had Aimee. I held her, and rocked her. She was beautiful, she had a full head of black hair, but in the front she had a white streak of hair. An autopsy didn't reveal much because she had been dead too long, but they did say she had some brain damage. My husband and parents made the funeral arrangements, and I was not allowed to go. I stayed in the hospital another week and was finally well enough to go home.After I got home, I had a terrible time. Tha

Comments: Yesterday was a strange day for me. My Angel Conner (10-8-99 - 12-23-99)was alive 77 days before flying off to heaven. Yesterday was his 77th day in heaven. He's been gone as long as he was with us. So now today he's actually been dead longer than alive. What's bad is it just seemed like yesterday when he died. I can't believe he was here such a short time. I had all these plans for what I was going to do for yesterday, but my oldest son was sick so I had both of my other children home with me. So my plans got altered a little bit. I had planned on going to this place next to where I work and have some balloons blown up. However we had to go somewhere they had them pre-blown up so we had to just pick from what they had. We also bought some spring like flowers to put in his vase. They finally finished his memorial last week so this was the first time I got to see it. It was extremely windy here yesterday. Several Semi-trucks blew over on the highway and other damage all over the city. Nolan & Sydney wanted to release it. So I let them. However I forgot to take the weight off of the balloon (since it was pre-done it had one). It took off across the cery like a bolt. We tried to chase it, but forget it. It finally ended up against a fence. They have a fenced in area for where they keep all the stuff for the cementary & a trailor is there. What I didn't realize was there was razor wire along the top & it busted the balloon. It just goes to show how my life is going. I can't even get a balloon up to my baby without something going wrong. The other kids then just wanted to wait in the car while I switched the flowers. So I stayed a bit not as long as I would have liked. The dirt on his grave had been patted down by the rains we have had lately. I again drew a heart in the dirt. Its my little sign of love to him. Once they get the grass going I'll have to come up with something new. It also seemed kind of strange that this 77th day fell on Ash Wednesday. So I went to Mass last night with part of my family. I can never go again as a whole family. There I sit crying while all the other babies are crying in church. I think this is what hurts me the most anymore. I'm going to get the balloons again today & try again. I think I'll let Nolan & Syd let them go. They think its neet. We'll give it another go. Little Bud-DY you know we all love & miss dearly. Angel hugs & butterfly kisses! Oooooh!!!!! Love Mama
