On Dec 6, 1995, I found her dead in her crib. After a thorough investigation her death was classified as SIDS. Her twin sister was immediately placed on a monitor, but no alarms occurred. We have subsequently had another baby, Kelly Anne on July 17, 1997 and we have chosen not to monitor her. We pray for an end to SIDS and the suffering others may have to endure. The online address is at my sister's house because we have not activated an account yet.

Sometimes I feel so sad when reading others experiences, other times they are very inspirational. It helps alot, even three years later, to read about those who have suffered through SIDS and survived and yet still morn as I do. I LOVE YOU THEN, NOW AND FOREVER MY BEAUTIFUL NATHAN!!!!!!!!

Comments: I lost my beautiful little boy, Lexis Donte Jefferson, on July 6, 1996. It is almost a year and a half later and the pain I feel is as acute today as it was the day I had to accept that my little darling was no longer here with me. Maybe its because Christmas is almost here that I feel especially blue. I have a four month old daughter and I feel so blessed to have her; but, sometimes I look at her, and she looks so much like her brother, that it hurts, hurts, hurts! I have so few memories to hold on to because my angel boy was only with me for 2 1/2 months, but the ones I have I cherish. I now collect angels in memory of my little angel, and all the little angels that he now plays with in heaven. I am in no mood to Christmas shop because I keep looking at things that would be appropriate for a 1 1/2 year old boy. I'm trying to muster up something in the way of spirit to give to the rest of the family, but it's so hard. I just want to stay in bed with the cover pulled over my head. But, I won't. I'll remember my son and I'll talk to my son, and I'll picture his little round smiling face, and I'll find a way to go on. That's all any of us can do -- find a way to keep going. All of our little angels are resting in peace because they know how much we loved them and will love them forever.

Comments: I'm just checking in. Many of your comments and experiences help me a great deal as I work through this first of loss of my infant daughter Jessica. She died March 5, 1997 while taking a morning nap at the babysitter. Each day is a struggle for my husband and I. The holidays are really hard as many of you understand all too well. My heart goes out to all of you. I knoww that you probably never wanted to "need" a network or group like this, just as I did not. However, I am so grateful for this spot to come and share other's experiences. I don't feel so alone.

Comments: For Aubrey Elaine born on August 22,1997 in heaven on October 14,1997 My beautiful child named Aubrey Elaine died from sids. When I was 4 months pregnant I began to bleed very badly. When I went to the hospital the doctor believed that I had already lost my baby. He ordered a sonogram and the baby was fine. The bleeding was a subchorionic bleed. I was ordered to bed rest. Then on Aug. 22 I went into labor 7 weeks early. They tried to stop it but it did not work. Aubrey came that afternoon. She was doing well and all we were waiting on was her to eat form a bottle and put on weight. Four days latter she developed an infection and was transfored to another hospital. I remember thinking that nothing could be worse than to see 4 people carting your child off in an ambulance. When she was 3 weeks and 3 days old she was able to come home. That was one of the happiest days of my life. I thought that all of our problems were over. On Tues. Oct. 14 we awoke to our chlid's lifeless body. I began cpr and called 911. The ambulance came and they worked on her for about 15 minutes in front of our house as we delt with our neighbors asking us what was going on. Then for the second and last time Aubrey was taken off by ambulane with 5 people working on her to the hospital. We followed in our car. When we got there we were put in a room to sit and wait. I will never forget that doctor coming in and telling that there was absolutly nothing the paramedics could of done. Aubrey was going to be the baby of the family with an older brother and sister. She was my little angel on earth now she is my little angel in heaven. The only comfort I get is that she is with my mother,my 2 brothers, and a sibling that I miscarried a couple of years before. I will always love and miss her dearly but one day I will be with her again.

Comments: My husband and I lost our son to SIDS in May of 1994. We were devastated but some how managed to move on with our lives. God has blessed us both with a daughter who was born a year later. We were both such a mess when we brought her home from the hospital. Constantly checking on her to make sure she was breathing and okay. Our daughter is our miracle child she has brought our family back from the living hell losing a child throughs you into. Although Jacob passed away 3 years ago we still miss him and long for him.

Comments: I visit this site often. I knew a family that lost their two month old son. His name was Dominic. I always wondered how they have gotten on. I visit this site in the hopes that the memorials don't continue to increase. sadly, they do. my heart aches each time I read them. If I could take away all of your pain, even if it was only for a few moments, i would. i wish i could bring your babies back to you. something more needs to be done to prevent this horriblr tragedy. the memorials need to stop growing. a really beautiful song called "fly" on Celine Dion's album really puts things into perspective. I will continue to pray for these families. God bless you all and may you find the strength to get you through another day.

Comments: We lost our son Mckenzie on December 3, 1993. We felt so blessed, because we already had a daughter that made us the perfect american family. Plus both children were premies and made it out of NICU. MJ weighed 2lbs. when born, and 17 when he died at 71/2 months, we never dreamed of death even by SIDS. I am greatful for places like this to go to and share with others.

Comments: I lost my niece to SIDS about 7 years ago now, and it still twinges every time I see another little girl. But the worst part of my family's ordeal is that we can't heal, because my sister is still in prison charged with her baby's murder. The officials around here aren't intelligent enough to tell the difference between SIDS and murder, so our hell is still with us in full force every day, and will be until she is released, and we can lay Marina to rest properly. I will be praying for all of your during this holiday season, because I know that that's when it's the hardest. All I ask is that you say a little prayer for us in return.

Comments: We lost our son almost 11 months ago,and right now through the holiday I am having a very bad time knowing that he is not with us and he should be. I find it very stressful at times. Sometimes I still cry. I was at the age of 39 when I find out that I was with child and felt like it was a blessing from god I son Kristofer live for 7 beautiful day's and he gave me and my husbund so much joy. But he was premature and needed a feeding device that put a hole in his heart and he was taken away from us just like that. I hurt someday more then others and pray a lot. I wish I could talk to someone else whom have exprenced the same lost I have. I know everyone on this page have lost a child and I understand there lost no matter how the little angles was taken away from us. So anyone that feel like to write me on my email feel free, maybe we can help each other. So please everyone pray from my husbund and I and keep oru son Krisofer in your prays as we may pray for each and everyone of you!
