Comments: I am a Grandfather, my daughter just lost her baby to this monster, called SIDS. Her name is Ashley Nicole Kirby. She was only 1.7 months old. I thought Cancer was the worst thing out there, but at least you knew it was there. I'v seen death alot in my lifetime, but this was perhaps the hardest thing I'v ever had to deal with. Not only the loss of a beautiful Granddaughter, but to see the hurt in my Daughter, and Not be able to fix it. Thank you for allowing me to vent. W. Lester.

Comments: Baby Girl Jadan, She was born on April-29-00, I had been at the doctors that Monday and everything was fine, heard the heart beat and everything. Of course I had been having pains since the last 2 months on my left side, I was telling them all (nurses) the time it was hurting on that side, and they never said anything. Well Saturday morning at 2:00am I got up, set up on the couch, about 30min later my cousin comes out of the room. She said are you okay, I said I am in labor. Well she sat up with me and she timed it for about 3 hours. I had went to the bathroom I knew I had felt her move, So about 5:20am, my cousin had took me to the hospital. I had pain but it wasn't really hard. We got to the hospital and I told my midwife ITS TIME and she had laughed and so did I cause I had been in the clinic so many times before the real thing. So she said go pee in this cup and we will hook you up to the monitors and stuff. I said okay. Come back and one of the nurses said take your bottoms off and get on the bed. She hooked the heartbeat one on first, after 10 min I knew something was wrong. She went and got my midwife, She tried to find it. After about 20 more min. She went and called my Doctor. He said to do a ultrasound. So she did. Never A sound and never a movement of the heart so she went back and called the doctor. He told her to brake my water and try that internal fetal monitor, All she and I heard was my pulse, she told the other nurse to turn the sound off. At this time I was screaming for my cousin Jennifer. She kept on telling you will have to wait a min. I just kept on screaming and crying. I didnt know what to think. She finally came to the room. I told her there is no heartbeat. She really didnt say anything, she was trying to be strong for me. I told her to call the daddy's mother. She called and she told them what was going on. The mother called her son and told him I was in labor. They were on their way, and then the midwife was put my in my room so that i could receive my epidural. By this time my Aunt had showed up, and was waiting outside of the room. All that I could think was that I didn't want to have the baby natural. But they informed me that there was no other choice, the only was to have a c-section was if my life was in danger. They gave me different kinds of medications to make me sleep, stop the pain, or whatever they had in mind. It didn't work. Finally the dad showed up, his mom told him outside of the room what had happened, he was just thinking there was a problem delivering. He came in the room and asked me what was going on? I told him that there was no heart beat. After 5 hour of waiting for my cervix to dilate, I finally was able to deliver. At 10:25 a.m. Jadan Nicole Brown was born. She weighted 7 pounds 5 ounces, 21 inches long. After I delivered they told me that the cord was wrapped around her neck 5 times. I got to hold her, and have my picture taken with her, along with the rest of the family. The nurse that was in there when i delivered made the nursery nurses take the babies from the nursery and put them in the rooms with their moms. The nursery was right across the hall from my room. I got to leave the hospital that day around 2:30 p.m. because my aunt was a nurse that worked at that hospital in the women's clinic and she could take care of me at home. I had my family and friends at home for support. My family members had made funeral arrangements, for Tuesday, May 2, 2000. That was the hardest thing that a mother could ever have to deal with. And to this day I think God for the two children that I had previously, Kelsey (7), Jordan (4). I hope to one day have more children, but Jadan will always be MOMMY'S SPECIAL LITTLE ANGEL! This poem was written by our paster especially for Jadan's funeral. JADAN NICOLE BROWN Jadan Nicole Brown is just asleep, in heaven she is playing at Jesus' feet, You may not understand all the whys, but God knows best, he hears your cries, Jadan Nicole was sent to you in love, so you could see a little bit of God above, He took her to heaven to live always, She is being rocked by angels today, She is smiling at all of God's wonderful sights, what a miracle, she is held in God's arms so tight, Jadan will never know sorrow, never know pain, She will never know loss all will be gain, Her life will be full of laughter an djoy, Living with Jesus playing with his toys, Jadan Nicole will always be just a thought away, There with Jesus everything with her is okay, She will play in god's big beautiful back yard, With God's own angels standing lovingly on guard, Jadan has a doll house the biggest and best, She is happy and playful never needing rest, Jadan is in the presence of God's own son, You talk about awesome, she is having fun, God and his kids have their own play ground, Listen closely, you can hear those joyful kid sounds, Running and climbing having a wonderful time, God says to Jadan, "come here child you are mine" Jadan Nicole Brown in god's strong arms away from the things that would cause her harm, Jadan Nicole is smiling right now, look and see, She is saying to you, "it's fun, come be with me" Jesus says to tell you " he loves you mom and dad" Look to him and we will be together again and be glad. In Loving Memory of JADAN NICOLE BROWN BORN 4-29-00. If anyone would like to e-mail me please feel free, I would love to hear from you. We all share a special bond.

I'm having a hard time concentrating on anything else. I took time off to rest and feel fine physically, but I can't stop crying and thinking about what could have been.

I was scared then and more scared now. After that I never wanted to be around babaies again, although I wanted one of my own for as long as I could remember. Now years later still terrifiedd of the possibilities I am a mother. My little girl is now 6 wks old. I'm not sure what the studies say, but its'nt there a certain age bracket when it is most likely it can't happen? I don't sleep at night...I haven't since she was born. I always check to see if she's breathing. Howwever, it is a very good cause to support.

It was sad and I don't know how all these parents survive this terrible happening in thre lives. I'm a parent now and I don't want to feel the pain these parents have gone through. The guest book signing of Malice hit me the hardest; I feel so sad or sorry for you and what you went thru I hope you are doing better but most likely not but my prayers will always be with you when I think of Vincent and you know.
