Comments: It's been a little over 4 months since my cousin and his wife's baby boy died of SIDS, and I still ask God why he had to die... he was like my own, I miscarried shortly before they found out they were expecting, and I latched onto Connor immediately... they just gave us a beautiful picture of Connor and I look at it and think of him daily!! The other day we went to Connor's grave for the first time since the funeral and all I could do was stand there and look at all the decorations and cry... he was sooo loved and sooo precious, my heart goes out to all the families who've had a baby and lost them to SIDS... Rest in peace, Connor Carl...Love, your daddy's cousin

I miss her very much and all the little things that baby girls would do are being missed also. I feel that God has a great little Angel up there with him but I still am angry and upset that He has taken her from us and my daughter Lisa, but she is watching over us and God will take care of her. God sees our tears and He has big shoulders to bear our feelings. Love Grandma & Papa Tony

Comments: We lost our beautiful angel Alexa Taylor on January 4, 1999. She was four months old and at the babysitter's home the day she died. She was so happy and full of life, it is hard to believe that she is gone. She is all we ever think about, she is the last thought in our mind at night and the first one in the morning. We miss her so much and wish she could still be with us. However, we are trying to stay confident in the knowledge that she is watching over us now. I am sorry to everyone on this site who has experienced this terrible loss. I hope your pain is easing and that you can find some type of comfort.

Comments: Yesterday was such a beautiful day here that I decided to buy my baby girl some balloons. As I put the balloons up at the cemetary I wondered how many other balloons were flying at the graves of the other angels who were taken from us so quickly. I know that Madalynn would have looked at Winnie the Pooh floating in the sun and she would have smiled her beautiful smile. Each day seems to bring a new challenge, but it does seem that "decorating " her grave helps me feel like I'm still able to take care of her.Some day there will be no more SIDS, pray for that day...no one deserves to go through this sort of pain and grief...

It was heartbreaking to see the devastation visited on the young parents of these three different children.

He is a precious gift, and I am truly blessed for having been given his gift of life. I will never forget the baby that I carried and lost, and each day I hug and kiss Stephen double. Once for him and once for my baby that rests in God's loving arms.

My brother was also high risk, and we lived through the fear that my older sister, and parents felt. I was baptized in a kitchen sink because my death was close, but through modern science, that is always changing and getting better, I survived. Thank you.

Comments: My precious little angel Riley Daniel was born on January 30, 1997 and passed away on March 16, 1997 (two years ago today). His big sister Justina was only two years when we lost him. Though we miss him as much today as ever I try to remember that he is always with us in our hearts and thoughts and that one day we will all be together again. I feel very blessed that we where able to spend the time that we had with my sweet little boy and if I had it to do all over again I wouldn't hesitate for a moment. WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU VERY MUCH LOVE MOMMY & JUSTINA P.S. I thought yo might enjoy reading this poem written in memory of my sweet Riley. There's an empty place in our hearts today, Our baby's sweet spirit was taken away. On the wings of an angel he was lifted above, Into god's arms to be cared for and loved. His time on this earth seems so short and unfair, But believe that he will always be there. I wish there were answers to help deal with the pain, Like why some leave us so early, and we must remain. Someday the answers to all will be clear, Always remember that RILEY IS NEAR.

This pass November his little sister Ashton was born. She has brought so much happiness to my life. I never thought it was possible to be happy again. I am so thankful for her. The week that she turned 12 weeks was very emotional for my whole family. Ashton is now 18 weeks old. I am constantly finding myself comparing her to Schuyler. They are like night and day. I am thankful for that. I will always remember Schuyler for his unique personality and his cute litte smile. He was perfect. I am so sad that Ashton will never know her big brother. I can't wait until I can tell her about him. We love you Schuyler. Mom & Dad and Ashton

Comments: I am the infinitly proud mom of a beautiful five month old baby girl- but I am practically immobilized with fear at the thought of SIDS. As I have looked through this site, my heart has broken anew with each story. I don't want Kate to grow up too fast, but I also can't wait until she passes out of the "danger zone"... whenever that is. I knew a baby when I was younger who died of SIDS, and now, being a mother myself, I can not begin to imagine the devastation. May you all find some sort of peace.

Comments: It has been eleven weeks now that my baby LeeLee has been taken from us.She would have been four months old now.Everyone says it will get easier as time goes on but I dont see it getting any easier every.I dont go a day without thinking of her or crying to have her here with me. I just cant understand why this had to happen. When I here others talk about their children or who is having a baby I just cant seem to get away fast enough. It just seems unfair that I will never be able to hold,see,kiss,hug or anything else to my beautiful baby girl again.I miss her more and more as each day goes by.

Comments: A message to Alex - Happy Birthday buddy. You would have been 1 today. Oh the things that have happened in the 7 agonizing months since you left us. You are now a guardian angel for your baby sister Jordyn Alexa who is 14 days old. She was born on the 19th. All we could think is not the 19th, we hate the 19th for the 19th was your last day on earth. We look at this date now as a sign that the 19th is ok. Jordyn is beautiful and everything about her turns our thoughts back to you. She is on a monitor and this comfort us and helps some, but we find ourselves constantly checking to make sure she is breathing. We had our first scare the other night when the low heart rate alarm went off, just a loose belt; whew. Daddy's heart stopped when I heard that alarm and all I could think was not again, could GOD be that cruel? I don't know that I have the strength to perform CPR on another one of my children. Your big brother Nicholas dearly misses you. All he could say was "another baby, another baby" when we brought her home. He loves being a big brother and your big brother. Now you are a big brother too. You were the picture of health at 4 1/2 months when GOD called you to come home 2 short days after we found out Jordyn was coming. We don't understand why, but we love you and miss you dearly. Mommy and I are having a hard time today. You received many cards and beautiful flowers in honor and remembrance of your 1st birthday. I hope you can see/feel the love of all of the people miss you. Please ask GOD for a special blessing for Daddy that he can continue to be strong and hold our family together. For the next 16 weeks, we will continue to hold our breath a pray that everything works out. All our love little buddy. Mommy and Daddy XXOOXX For all SIDS fathers out there, don't be afraid to discuss your feelings with others. Most Dads have the I can fix anything mentality, but this time you must reach out to others for support. You cannot do this alone. Peace and GOD's love to all that must endure this nightmare.

Comments: I am a mother of two children. Unfortunately, our life was changed forever in 1994 by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Our oldest, Paige, now 7, she was 3 when our second child was born. At 5 weeks old, Makenzie died of SIDS and we grieve constantly for our loss. We have managed to keep our family together but we have each experienced great sorrow. There is not a day that goes by that Makenzie's name is not mentioned. I only wish I could help our surviving child to deal with her grief. She often says, " I wish I could be in Heaven with my sister." We have made the decision not to have more children for our own sanity but I don't know if that is fair to Paige. She is constantly begging for a sibling.

Comments: I am compiling a little book of memories for my mum. I had a brother who died of SIDS in 1977 when I was 2 years old. His name was James, he was 4 months old. I have asked family and friends to help me with this project by sending me accounts of their memories of baby James and any other material they feel is appropriate such as poems drawings etc. If anyone else would like to contribute something, perhaps a personal account of their own experience, I would be truly honoured to be able to include it. I am particularly interested in obtaining a piece from a mother who has experienced the same thing, my mum doesn't know anyone else who has experienced this same tragedy and I think that it would be good to have a message from someone who really understands how she feels. Preferably from a mum who lost her baby about the same time and at the same age. Please email me if you are willing to help. Thank you.

Comments: It has been 2 months and 8 days since we lost are Sweet Baby Danika. she was 4days short of 3 months. I'm always thinking of her no matter where I am or what I'm doing. I still think of things that I think that could have prevented her of dying. You know a mothers instinct is to protect her baby so why couldn't I. I could hardly wait to be a mom. I'm happy that I had her for at least a short time. I had her room all in Dalmatians she would do her baby talk to them and laugh. Still to this day anytime I see Dalmatian stuff I buy it. Her daddy and I are getting married on September 23,1999. It would have been her first birhtday. And I am doing the wedding in Dalmatian Stuff. Just as I did her funeral with Dalmatians. Every child that you may have is special. But it is hard to think how can any baby be as special as the one I lost. I had a special little song I used to sing to her. Even now when I look at her pictures that are up in the house. I still sing her special song it makes me feel better. And I know she is listening to me. I even kiss her pictures as she can feel the warmth of my touch. Her room is still the same for I don't want to pack anything away afraid to lose her smell. I haven't even washed her clothing she wore that dreadful week. I don't let anyone in her room I don't want anyone elses smells in there. Danika mommy and daddy love you very much and miss you more than you could ever know. Take care of my Sweet Baby Danika, bigbrother Cory. Whom I also lost to SIDS 27 yrs ago. We love you both. Love Mommy and Daddy forever and always.

Comments: In November of 1997 our miracle baby was born. It was a difficult 4 years trying to get pregnant. Infertility can be very stressful. When we found out we were finally expecting our first child, our world changed. We were so happy. Finally I could go to baby showers and give other people baby gifts, I could look at other babies again without wondering why I couldn't have one. I had a normal pregnancy, my baby grew, her heart beat was always fine and I was healthy. At 38 1/2 weeks pregnant I went into labour. It was a hard labour around 24 hours long. It was determined I needed a C section. They performed the operation and held her up in the air and said its a girl. My husband and I looked at each outher and cried tears of joy. Suddenly the room became frantic. There were health proffessionals running around, I kept screaming whats wrong. No one would answer, My husband watched in horror as they could not get her breathing on her own. We both were in disbelief, how could this happen. Our perfect little angel, our reason to live, what we had worked so hard for was not to be. We found out she died from non immune hydrops. She developed fluid in her chest cavity causing her little lungs to be under developed. We still do not know what causes this, we live that day in the operating room over and over again!

Comments: Just had some news that in the county I live in we had 3 times the national rate of SIDS cases last year. My nephew was one of them and it hurts to know that so many families have experienced this loss. My neighbor just lost thier little girl last week here also, so it continues on. We have no SIDS ALLIANCE here in South Dakota so hopefully we can educate parents and daycare providers about SIDS through this tragic fact.

Comments: We would like to tell everybody,"Hello." We lost our little girl, Meagann Tylor-Lynn Dyamondstar, January 29,1998. Well I'm happy to say we had another child... a little boy!!!! He weighed 2lb/4oz, he was 16 weeks early. He was born on December 24,1998. Since, he was so early he had to stay in the hospital until he got up to 4lb. The sad and happy part was the day he got to come home was...January 29,1999. One year to the date that our daughter died of SIDS. We must say the day was very emotional and in ways I felt guilty. Some people asked me how do I get threw the nights after what happen to our daughter. I've got to say it was not easy. Our little boy was sent home on a monitor because,of the SIDS and the fact he was so tiny. You still look to see if they are breathing. You jump up in the middle of the night,"just to check." Your like this mother hawk and soon I began to just sit back and enjoy my new little boy and "WHY-HOW?" Because,.... You cannot predict SIDS... You cannot stop SIDS from happening... You have no control in that department... sad but you just can't do anything. So, I started enjoying my son. Now don't get me wrong I still jump up,I still shake his little foot in the middle of the night but, what normal mother would'nt after going throw SIDS. Our daughter lived for 2 months and 4 days, our son is 2 months and 6 days old today and he is doing fine. The hardest part to me about having another baby is seeing our daughter in the faces he makes sometimes.Still, it is worth every minute I have with him .(and 50 years from now) I hope I've helped someone. You'all know you helped me.

Comments: A great friend of mine lost her baby boy November 11, 1998. It seems to be hard for me to be close to her because my son was born 2 days after hers. She held my son for the first time last week. you could see the hurt yet, there was a peaceful look in her eyes. Sometimes I say some stupid things (ie. I gave him a french fry the other day it wasn't going ti kill him.) How can I be so insensitive? I love my friend so much but sometimes I can't help but think she hates me. We all miss her son very much. I visit his grave frequently. I hope my friend and I can become closer despite my moments of not thiking before speaking.
