Even after all the years pass by you never forget about the sweetest gift that god gave to you. Hopefully one day we will find a answer to all of our questions.

Comments: We lost our beautiful daughter Allison Brooke to SIDS Nov.16,1995. Allison was one week away from 9 months. Allison was the result of two years of infertility, we felt truly blessed when she was born 3 days before her mother's birthday. We have since been blessed with a son, it was discovered two weeks after her funeral that we were expecting.For anyone who has other children after experiencing SIDS, we would highly recommend the use of an apnea monitor, it truly was a relief to us to know that if anything was to happen to our new baby that we would be alerted, it also helps you to get some sleep that I don't know we would have otherwise gotten. A SIDS death is so frustrating, because you have nothing to blame, no reason as to why it happened, your first warning is a baby that is not breathing. God bless all of you that have had to go through this. I look forward to the day we hold our little angels again, until then they have the best babysitter ever, remember Jesus has a rocking chair (if you have not heard that song it is very reassuring).

Comments: We lost our 2nd child Christopher William on March 23, 1998. It was his 4 month birthday. He died while napping at our child care providers home. I have been looking for and reading everthing I can find on SIDS in the hopes that it will help my husband, my childcare provider and myself come to terms with Christophers death. I am also very concerned for my other son who was 26 months old the day his brother died. I am finding this site very helpful with the personal stories and research information. I will be a frequent visitor.

Comments: I lost my son, Kyle, about 1 year ago on march 8, 1997. I never thought something like this would ever happen. I still think about him every day, and miss him just as much as I always have. Those of you that are married please try to hang in there and try to turn to each other for comfort. My marriage fell apart after our son died, because he didn't feel that he could talk to me. But, always remember that your spouse is the only one who can say "I know how you feel" because they lost the same child as you did and they meant just as much to them. Thanx for th web page.

Comments: My neice, Shannon died on the night of 9th February 1998, she was 2 years and 4 months old. My sister-in-law took her into her own bed around 9pm as she was fretful and crying. My Sister-in law woke at midnight to find Shannon dead in her arms. SIDS was listed as the cause of death and we were all very stunned. One normally expects to feel safe when a child reaches 1 year and it is common not to worry so much with regard to sleeping positions. Like many many others, I am angry and upset that researchers only feel it necessary to investigate SIDS in younger children as it is now apparent that this also effects the older child and not just babies. I hope soon there will be an answer to the question "why".

My ex wife has been the president of the Utah chapter. this seems to have helped her deal with the grief. We are both re married and are going on with our lives. I think these site can be an enormous benifit to people who are dealing with the pain of a SIDS incident. May God bless all of the father's and mother's who have become one of the unsuspecting members of the SID's family.

Comments: Quinnzelle "Quinn" Z. R. Reaves-Margolies, my Son, born January 13, 1995, passed away April 22, 1995 of SIDS. Is it amazing what you take for granted? "You never know what you have until it is gone." It still hurts, pieces always seems to be missing. I look at life at a different angle. I now look in the sky and smile, knowing my first-born son is looking and watching over me. His Grandpas and other family members are teaching him, growing and learning lots, just as I would be teaching him, if physically he was down here. He would always be, "...My Little Man..." I realize throughout these past couple of years: I don't blame God. I don't "hate." I didn't deserve it (NO one deserves it) - trust me, I've heard it all, after Quinn passed. Buried Father at 17, buried Son at 22. NOW!!! I'm stronger, more confident, and my decisions will always be mine, but yet at times, more alone than ever... I look back (all the memories), see his beautiful face, and every thing else seems so irrelevant. Seven and a half months of Labor, only three and a half months of Life. It seems so unfair, doesn't it? I love him, I miss him! I feel for everyone who has lost. Be patient, you'll be stronger, you'll learn priorities, to appreciate: Life in itself!!! And, "Time (and FAITH) is the Ultimate Healer." I'm finally seeing a light of hope (took me so long), finding a "Peace of Mind." To everyone: You are all in my prayers. Love, Peace, and God Bless. Take care, V/r, Aliza.

Comments: My 2 month old son died on 3-17-98. He had been healthy and had no problems. That morning when I checked on him, he felt cold, too cold. That was the worst moment in my life. I had heard of SIDS but thought that it was something that happened to other people. My children are the most important things in my life. This site has shown me that there are other people, who like me, loved and lost their beloved children to this horrible thing called SIDS.
