Comments: It has been just over 14months since my beautiful baby died. Madalynn is still the light of my life. My step- sister recently had a baby girl. I was devastated to learn that she lets Makenzie sleep on her stomach. She told my parents (referring to SIDS)" if it happens it happens, there's nothing I can do." It amazes me that anyone would take that chance with their baby. No one can understand how precious a child is if they've not experienced the gut wrenching, never ending pain of losing one. I am glad that mother's day is over. I am thankful to have a wonderful man and parents who helped me get through the day. God bless all of you who have lost a child. Does it ever stop hurting? I still feel the same pain I did the day she died.

Comments: I have 3 children but one passed away when he was 9 weeks old after having heart surgery. I never knew that so many babies die each year from SIDS. I have a 6 month old and I sleep next to her every night because she doesn't like being alone. I think to myself maybe she is telling me something that I don't understand. A parent does everything within their power to keep their children happy and healthy and something as simple as putting your baby down for a nap or to sleep at night can have devastating results. What is worse to me is that they aren't exactly sure what causes it. I found this web site because I was looking for info on vaccinations. Someone told me that SIDS peeks at 2 and 4 months and this is when they get shots. Could there be a connection? I am so sorry for your loss and I understand the pain. I won't tell you it gets any easier but for me I proceeded to have other children right away. And that helped me. Please know that you did nothing wrong and God took your baby to be with him because they are too special to be in this crazy, dangerous world. I am sorry for all of your losses and thinking of you.

Comments: Happy heaven birthday Zackary Shane-- it has been three months today since you left us, and every day is awful. Yesterday I went through what should have been a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY, it was not. We have these three days back to back, mothers day, your heaven birthday, and tomorrow is your earth birthday-- you would have been 5 months old tomorrow. I am sad-- and mad that you are gone. My life is soooooo hard with out you. I feel at times that I am loosing my mind... the pain is so hard. Your sisters Aly and Jessica are sad today too. And your Daddy says that he misses your smell and your smile. We feel ripped off--- after waiting for 9 long months, through a rough pregnancy, to meet, and love you, and then 59 days later, you were gone. It still seems like a movie. I am struggling as to what to do with my life now baby boy-- any suggestions. Do I have my tubes untied, adopt, or be thankful for your sisters???? I wanted so much to be YOUR MOMMY, now and forever. Happy birthday's little man, Mommy

Comments: Well, I find myself back here again...on Mother's Day...searching for my past 1 or 2 entries. I can't even remember when they were written let alone what words I wrote. Erin Stephanie Adrian was a part of our family and friends's life for 7 weeks and I sometimes wonder if that length of time really qualifies myself as a mother...I had her for such a short time that I often think that it was just a horrible nightmare. I'm 26 years of age and am not quite ready to bare another child and frankly, I'm not sure if I ever will be...but at times like this, I really do appreciate the guestbook entries written before me. I know this may be awful to say, but somehow, I feel better knowing that I am not the only who has gone or is still going through this aching that I am feeling. If it wasn't for the good ole' search engines that lead me to this site some years ago, I don't think I would have been able to express my fears and my pain as well as I have. Thank you to the people who have made this site what it is today...and all my condolences to those who have lost someone dearest to them. We love you Erin Henderson.

I would never want anyone to go through losing a child. I really still don't want to face it, every time I think about him I don't want to realize that he's never coming back. That the hardest thing for me to deal with. He has a big sister named Ashley she's 2 and she just don't understand why her brother is not here with us anymore and I honestly, don't have any idea of what to tell her. Well, I just wanted to tell everyone that I'm sorry for your loss.

Comments: It was wonderful to find such a website, my husband and I lost our son Gabriel David December 22, 1998. I was 12 weeks pregnant, when the doctors discovered through numerous ultrasounds and a CVS fetal tissue exam that our beloved son had a chromosome 18 disorder that would inhibit him from sustaining life on his own, that is if I was able to carry him full term. His birth defects were multiple. It broke our hearts to see our son moving on an ultrasound and not be able to save him, or do something for him. To have a child conceived with such a chromosome disorder is a 1 in 400,000 chance. God gave us Gabriel for a very short time but he will always be in our hearts. Shari, Alan and Allie Tron

Comments: On January 27, 1998 I had a baby girl and my husband and I named her Mallory Cadence. Mallory passed away on April 2, 1998 of SIDS(she was a little over 2 months). She was my third daughter. After Mallory's death, my husband and I didn't plan to have any more kids until at least the year 2001. Last July I found out that I was pregnant. I didn't know what to think at the time. On March 15 of this year, I gave birth to another daughter, Calista Jordan. I can't sleep unless I know that Calista is ok. I place her crib next to my bedside and I wake up every hour wondering if she is ok. I have a strong feeling that she will be. My friends say that Calista is a gift from God to replace Mallory. I become very angry when they say that. I don't want a replacement for Mallory. Mallory is Mallory. Calista is Calista. They both are equally as special to me. All of my daughters are very special to me. When my husband and I go somewhere and when we bring our daughters with us, people only see us with 3 daughters. We don't really have 3. We have 4 beautiful daughters. Mallory Cadence remains in our hearts and always will.
