Comments: How very sad to see how there are still so many parents losing their babies to SIDS. I lost my baby girl, a twin, at just six weeks old, on the 16 Feb 1993. I was only 19 years old myself and had never experienced a death before. Losing one of my first children, was the most horrific thing that could ever happen to anyone, but I have come through it, although I will never forget my 'beautiful angel', my life must go on. I would love to talk to anyone who has suffered this tragidy also.

Comments: I never realized there was anything like the SIDS Network until I started researching for a speach on SIDS that I am doing in school. I am glad I found the website. I have always been interested in getting more information on SIDS. My sister died of SIDS 12 years ago, and now that I know of the SIDS Network, I will be able to keep updated.

Comments: My daughter passed away from Sids Aug. 29 2000. I have been trying to find all I can about sids and why it happens? I have a hard time accepting her dealth at time and often blaim myself! I had just breatfed her and laid her down to feed my other children came back and she was not breathing so I immediately started cpr and my daughter called 911. The hardest thing about this situation is that all my childrenm pray for god to give us Abby back and I just start crying beacause I know they don't understand dealth and I try to talk to them about her and I have tried to explain to them. I even made a coulogde of her pictures with them and said anytime they wanted to see Abby just look at the pictures. We have also started a scapp book of her things! I miss her everyday more and more!

Comments: My Son will be six years old on January 13th...Time is flying. There are the days I feel strong and "together." At other times, I ache so much. I walked the SIDS WAWA Walk at Locust Shade Park in Triangle, VA (first time at this location, great turn out--sad to see so many parents, loved-ones, family and friends to experience a death of a child from SIDS) on September 17, 2000. I did the walk "alone." I did it for me, I did it for my Quinn. I was proud to walk, proud to raise money for SIDS Research. It was beautiful outside on that day, not a cloud in site...My Angel, looking down upon me. I never realized how much I love flying (traveling a lot lately). I feel so much closer to the Heavens, so much closer to my Son...if I could touch and hold him again... It is so peaceful, the horizon, the sun, the clouds--I smile, I frown, I smile again--I miss him dearly... I say a prayer for all who are in mourning, trying to survive, trying to find "that peace." It is a long road. It is your road...at your own pace. God Bless You.

Comments: My heart goes out to all who have lost an infant suddenly. Our daughter, Erin Mae, died at 2 months, 22 days on Aug 2, 1995. We had put her down to nap on a waterbed not knowing of the dangers. The coroner never ruled out SIDS either. God blessed us with a beautiful baby boy a year later. He was actually due on what would have been Erin's 1st birthday. We miss her terribly. She's forever in our hearts. I'm here if anyone wants to talk. God bless!

Comments: I think that having a site for sids really helps alot of mothers.I've never lost a child to sids, but my best friend has.She was only 17 when she lost Austin. It tore her up and now she thinks that when ever she has another kid that it's going to die from sids again.So I'm asking you a question.When she has more kids will they die from sids too? She heard that it will keep on happening to all her kids, but I told her not believe everything she hears so I just want to know if thats true.I'd apperciate it if you wrote me back .Thanks

Comments: It's really nice to see a site like this when you feel as if you are all alone. Thank you for providing such a helpful and advisable place to go. I lost my baby when I was 10 1/2 weeks pregnant and sometimes I don't know what to do with myself. Having this child meant everything to me and is something that I had always wanted. I have learned now that you cannot take life for granted. Live each day to the fullest but never forget what you have lost or been blessed with. I love you my precious angel, I know that your looking over Mommy right now, I just wish I could be looking over you. Sweet Dreams Angel... Love, Mommy

Comments: Today seemed to be a good day to remember my brother, Tony, who died of SIDS November 16, 1960. He was 17 days old. October 30 will be his 40th birthday, my 39th will be October 20. Yes, I am a subsequent child and up until 1995 did I wonder why it was that my mother and I could never seem to get close, in as much as I tried. I asked my Father one day, "Did my mother have me because she lost Tony.? With a look of disbelief, he shook his head yes. I never related my mother losing Tony as to why she was afraid to get close to me, but the thought did cross my mind. I now know she was afraid of losing me. But as it has been, I have lived a lot of my life without the relationship of a mother and daughter, though it is something I've always longed for. Today I have some of that, but nothing can ever replace the years that are lost except to understand what my mother went through in a time when SIDS was not understood and there were no support groups. I love her all the more as I have gained more clarity. When I was in college in 1996, I wrote a story about my childhood, and my search and discovery of the inner child I lost at a very young age. I titled it "Displaced Conception." Since then I have grown so much, as if it were the starting point of a place I had searched for so long. Still, I often wonder what it has been like for other subsequent children, their lives and relationships. For me, in my relationship with Tony, he is a part of everything I do. It may sound crazy, but I truly find compfort in keeping his memory alive in a good way. I believe he works through me in many ways, guides the child in me that will always be there. It is quite mysterious when I think about some of the experiences I've had, that it is more than coincedental. But I choose to believe it that way. Perhaps there are other subsequent children out there who wonder as I do, who wonder why they feel different. It is because they are, they are special. They were given life for a reason, just like me. Sincerely, Marie Holt

Comments: I haven't been to the site for awhile. However with Conner's first birthday approaching rapidly I have felt compelled to stop by. I hate to see babies still continue to die from this horrid thing called SIDS. I still miss my little guy so much. I still feel the hole in my heart. I sometimes think it is getting larger rather than closing up. My other 2 children help me through the really rough times. Hubby tries to help, but there isn't much he can do. He is still dealing with his own pain too! We talk & cry about him often. Conner was such a funny & strange little toot! Quite the character at only 2 & 1/2 months old. I hate to think I'll have to carry this pain with me another 40-50-60 years. Conner Riley was born on 10/8/99 at 10 lbs 13 ozs & 21 inches long, so the being a little baby was not a risk for him. Yes he was a boy, which is a risk factor, but can't do anything about that. I never drank while pregnant with him or I have never ever done drugs. No one around us smokes, friends or family. I was 36 at the time of his birth. So the young mother wasn't a risk factor. He died during the winter 12/23/99 the prime time for SIDS. He died while taking his morning nap at the babysitters. He died while sleeping on his back. His baby sitter has been doing this for 18 years and has always taken all the precautions as we did also. It just throws you for a loop that no matter what you do it can still just yank your baby out of your arms. So you can tell I do give a hoot about the risks. I want a cure! I want to know what it was that caused my baby to just stop breathing. I hate not knowing what stole my pride & joy away from me. While everyone else was celebrating the birth of another baby we were grieving the loss of ours. Everyone was celebrating the new milineium (sp?) a new beginning, and we were dealing with the end of our life as we had known it. Cursing the beginning of all the pain. Okay I have carried on enough for now. I just wanted to express some of my feelings. Please still try to keep the risks from your precious babies because that is all you can do. The rest is just left in someone elses hands. Someone with more power and with a plan we cannot understand. Angel Hugs & Butterfly Kisses my perfect angel Conner! I miss you more with every breath I take. "Life & Hope is a Baby's Breath, and special is each of our angels names. Through our Baby Angel's death, yours will reach it's First Birthday." The last part was taken from a poem called Baby Angels written by Cyndie Dunn & Lee-Ann Geddes. I like to read it often. Kiss all your children tonight 1 extra time for my little Conner because you can! Thanks for letting me release some of my feelings. Shirl
