Comments: Thankyou for your site, I visit it often, especially First Person, because it means I can cry without people fussing. My son died 7th August 98. It was his first birthday two days ago. So it helps to know I'm not alone, I just wish a cause could be found soon so nobody else goes through this.

Comments: I lost my God Child a year ago today to SIDS, by neglect. I think all those who are responsible for getting out the word of the Back To Sleep Campaign are wonderful. You know I'm sure all of you have felt the loss, felt the helplessness of losing somebody you loved and cared for, it's just so sad when it is an infant - they haven't even had a chance to begin there life. It is left in our hands and that is why everybody should spread the word. Everybody should be responsible for making sure all hospitals, doctors offices, day care providers and even grandparents know about "Back to Sleep". My God Childs mother has been on a campaign since she lost her Little Angel and made a big difference. She has spoken to every body she can think of and is still doing work. Getting out the word. She and another SIDS mother recently got the local hospitals to put the "Back To Sleep" logo on the t-shirts that the newborns are sent home in. I think that is wonderful. Again it is such a loss and my little godchild I know is up in Heaven in a better place, but that is hard to believe when you don't have them here to love on, to hold, to watch take their first bite of real food and so on. My heart goes out to each and every one of you for your loss. There is no greater loss, than that of a child.

Comments: My Son, "Quinn" Reaves-Margolies, would have been turning four in January. It is hard to imagine what my life would be like if he was still alive. I know that he is in a better place--receiving "hands-ons" experience from our Creator--not worrying about what tomorrow could and can bring like I am. I'm finding out very quickly that life gives you many trials and tribulations but it is what we make of the situation and the final outcome, hopefully positively rather than negatively, is what matters the most. In this world, hopefully people will realize that it is not how much money you make, not what you can buy--materialistically, but it is all about what kind of an impact you make for yourself and with and on other people. To leave wonderful memories behind and remember not to take anything for granted for it can be taken away in an instant. Material things: You can replace. A person: You can't. I realize that in my life, I learn to appreciate--My Faith, Family, Friends, and My Life. I learned young in life about Death, and remembering that every death and their circumstances are different (My Grandparents vs. My Father vs. My Son). I keep the living (and the deaths) in my prayers and in my heart--for anyone to learn the true value of friendship and realizing it, that is truly a blessing in itself. If you need someone to talk to, please e-mail me. I'm a great listener as well as a talker. ;-) Thanks, Love, Peace and God Bless You All!!!! Aliza (Now 26 Yrs., who lost her Son and only child to SIDS in April 1995) P.S. to the Originators & Contributors to this website... I THANK YOU SO MUCH, you have helped me heal wounds throughout the years and let me know I am not alone.

Comments: My beautiful niece Jami Elizabeth was taken from us so suddenly at ten weeks old in Oct. 1989. The only explanation that was given was SIDS. Those letters have come to haunt our family day in and day out since. Is there any way to explain to her brother and sister born since and cousins...no, just that she was beautiful and sweet for what little time we had to spend with her. My concern has always been that she had her DPT shots within 24 hours of her death, the doctors tell us that this could NOT have been the problem, but the mystery still remains. In loving memory of Jami Elizabeth......you are in my thoughts daily and we will never forget the way you smiled, the way you cried, the way your deep blue eyes still remain in the memories of minds. Loving your forever and always....Aunt Kel Kel......

We know that His ways are higher than ours. It may not be for us to understand or even to like, but it is for us to rejoice in the Lord. My baby is safely tucked in the arms of Jesus and I could ask no better place for him to be. I am offering my support to all of you out there who also struggle with their loss.

She was doing like always and cleaning the house and playing with there other son who was 1 & 1/2 years old when she went to pick the baby up. He was blue and very cold and had some slime coming out of his nose. By the time the ambulance had gotten there they said that he had been dead for about 2 hours. They said it was SIDS but they don't know for sure because they have not recieved the death certificate and it has been 2 months. He was born 2 months early due to a car accident. Could that have anything to due with his passing away?? She just found out that she is pregnant again and is very devistated because it has barely been two months.

Comments: This is a very nice web page. I lost my little Samantha Ann on 12/11/94. I was in the middle on an E.M.T. class when this happened. Shortly after that we had our training and I could not sit through the class. My little girl was only 8 weeks old when my wife and I lost her. We have since had a son and he is doing very well. He just turned 3 in November. I just hope that anybody who loses a child this way will try to pull stregth from their partner instead of pulling away. After almost 4 years my wife and I are going through a divorce because she has not gone on with her life. She always blamed her self for the death of our little Sammi. Now its almost like she has turned the blame to me,for this I feel sorry for her. Because I love her and with help we can over come this horrable thing.

Comments: My heart goes out to all of the parents and other family members who have lost a precious baby to this disease. My daughter passed away on May 13, 1996 without any warning. It is something that stays with you and changes what and who you are. The reality is something you are required to live with. My thoughts and Prayers, C.Evans

Comments: I was thinking about doing a research project on this topic and found this page. Let me just say I know how you all feel. I lost my baby brother to SIDS when I was 8 years old. It was devastating to my family and to me, mostly because he died from essentially nothing. We just laid him down for a nap as a healthy squealing baby boy, and an hour later he was gone. I can still remember the events of that day like it happened this morning. But I know that that experience has made me who I am today. And I know God took him for a reason. I must admit though that I questioned God and wondered how it all could've happened to me, my older brother, and my parents. I still wonder that when I see a boy today that would be his age and think how much I wish he were still here. I want all of you to know that I can listen to you if you need someone.

Comments: I just wanted to let everyone know that my thoughts are with you and my heart goes out to all of the "new" and "old" losses. I pray for the day they find a reason for this horrible thing called "SIDS". No parent should have to go through this. We lost out 3rd daughter to SIDS July 15, 1997. She was 7 weeks old. We found out we were pregnant about 2 months after losing her and now have another beautiful baby girl name Ciarra who is 8 months old. It has been a great joy but many fears also. We also just found out we are having another surprise baby. I dont seem to be quite as scared with this pregnancy. I guess time does help some but Alauna will always be missed and can never be replaced. I would love to hear from anyone who has questions about having subsequent children or who have had subsequent children. God Bless all of you and your precious little angels.

Comments: Thank you all for your hard work and dedication. I met a gentleman a few years ago who had lost a child to SIDS, and he commented to me that there had not always been a network of volunteers to provide grief support, information, etc. Thanks to this website and many volunteers nationwide, there will be place to go for support for anyone dealing with this tragedy.

Comments: I Lost my sixth child to sids in January 1972 and then twenty years later lost my grandson to sids. I look at a little baby and can picture them being dead. I had a very difficult time going on after my baby died. My husband was transferred with his job and left me home after our daughter died. I had no one to talk to. Everyone would be uncomptfortable whenever I would mention my child. My other children were 11, 10, 8. 6, and 2 and they never talked about her or her death either. They were able to express their feelings when our daughter lost her son. I think to be able to talk with someone who has lost a child is very helpful.
