Comments: My heart aches for all of you. One thing I have to say is Heaven must be glorius with all the precious babies up there. Here is a poem I ran across (author unknown). I hope some find comfort in it. {{{{}}}} "I'll lend you for a little while A child of mine, "God said. "For you to love while he lives, And mourn for when he's dead. It may be six or seven years Or forty-two or three. But will you, til I call him back, Take care of him for me?" He'll bring his charms To gladden you and-- (should his stay be brief) You'll have his lovely memories As a solace for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, Since all from earth return; But there are lessons taught below I want this child to learn. I've searched the whole world over In my search for teacher's true. And from all those that crowd life's lane, I have chosen you. Now will you give him all your love? Not think the labor vain? Not hate me when I come To take him back again?" "I fancied that I heard them say--- "Dear Lord, Thy will be done For all the joys Thy child will bring The risk of grief we'll run. We will shelter him with tenderness, We'll love him while we may. And for the happiness we've known Forever grateful stay. But should Thy angel call for him, Much sooner than we've planned, We'll brave the bitter grief that comes And try to understand

Comments: I have enjoyed all the messages and information I have seen here . I experienced the loss of Sids in oct. of 93 wich now seems like a life time ago , but it never stops the pain that will always be felt in the heart , time has put things in a better prospective, But Hallie will live in my heart forever, May God give all who read this the peace he has finally gave to me, dont give up as their are people who are willing to listen to your situation, and to be your extra stength when you need it most, a good support group is one of the things that helped me the most and then being their to help others has helped me to heel even more time has made it easier but being able to give some of Hallies love to others has also made it a growing experience.

Comments: It has been 3 months since we lost baby Zachary. He was 4 and 1/2 months old. He is my nephew and I loved him so much.My sister and I was his only babysitters. You see his mother was very careful and too scared to leave him with anyone. We feel at least he was with his mommy when he died. It makes no sense though, she was a wonderful mother. Can you believe he had 72 pacifiers? He was 18lbs and walking across the kitchen floor at 4 months. His death is still so unbearable. We all agreed Zachary's mother Rebecca should try to have another baby. Zachary was her first and her arms are so empty. Well it just may happen. Rebecca is pregnate with twins. She is only 2 months. We are leary because she miscarried the pregnancy before Zachary. We are all hoping this is a blessing from God and these babies will be born healthy. These babies will never replace you Bebe, for you are forever in our hearts and our thoughts. Not a day goes by that we don't think about you with your sweet angel face and your distinct personality. At least you have Grandma Lyons and Grandpa Wayne with you to watch over you and comfort you. We know you are in good hands but we still miss you. We love you Zachary Wayne, our angel baby.

I have gone on and learned to live again, but not one day passes that I don't think of that beautiful little boy and how he touched my soul. You will get through this. We all have each other. Our babies are happy and playing together. Someday we will be with them and hold them again. Until then, keep them alive in your heart.

Comments: We lost our grandson Robert in June 1998. He was 4 months old. We have another grandson just 4 days younger than Robert and it has been very hard watching him grow and knowing there should be 2 little boys not 1. Robert loved music and I used to sing him to sleep every night. Like it says in his favourite song he is "safe in my heart and my heart will go on." Somehow we have learned to live around the pain and grief that is always with us. We are proud to have known our Little Man even for such a short time. He blessed our lives and enriched our hearts. Now he is our special rose-bud "budded on earth,blooming in heaven." Stay sweet Little Man and watch over us always. We love you and will never forget you, Nana and Dan-dan.

I just wanted to say that this site has been a blessing for me, I don't really like to talk much about what happend with most people because I feel like I make them feel uncomfortable and that they don't have any idea what it feels like to go through this anyway. I hate to say it but I feel a little better knowing I'm not all alone, though I wouldn't want anyone to have to go through such terrible tragedy. I thank god everyday for letting me hold and love such a precious child and I know that I will be with him again someday. Until then my sweet little boy you will always have a big peice of my heart. WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU, LOVE MOMMY AND BIG SISTER JUSTINA

We often wonder what it would be like to have you here. What you would look like at a year old. How you and your older brother would play together. We should be baking a cake and having a huge party. Instead we'll send balloons to heaven and kiss the sky for you. Our hearts are in a million pieces today and we often wonder if the pieces will ever heal and mend.

May God be present in your life to help heal the sorrow and pain that seems to never go away. He knew at times our lives would be as tough as "nails", but he promised to be there for us at all times.

Comments: Special thanks to the Wood's for sponsoring this site for the month of Sept. And my condolences on their devestating double tradgedy! My daughter Katelin Nicole (born 12/3/98, died 13/7/98) would have been 18 months old today and I miss her terribly! I can't stop thinking about all that should have been. Wondering what she'd be like right now, Would her hair have been curly? Would her eyes still be blue? What would be her favorite book? Toy? Treat? How many words would she be able to say, and what would it have been like to hear her say mommy? To all those out there who are grieving the loss of their precious babies and the life that should have been, I'm thinking of you and I know I'm not alone. Thanks for listening, Sarah.

Comments: My beautiful baby boy named Jack died of Atypical sids with signs of infection. He was 18 months old and had no relation to any of the sids signs(smoking, premature, ect.) That is why they call it atypical. I am devastated that this could happen to such innocent little babies!

Comments: It is the day after our 1 year anniversary...hell day, i refer to it, the day our lives were ripped apart forever, the day we lost our beautiful sweet 9 month and 11 day old little boy Brandon John. It is funny, people keep saying things like I am sorry it is a year...how are you? and I say to my husband, I can not believe a year has gone by..how can it be,, I relive that day over in my head a dozen times everyday...it still feels like yesterday...My heart is broken, ripped in a million pieces.. Also I say today is no worse than yesterday or tommorrow b/c everyday I suffer..yes it is the day it happen but I suffer every single day..if that makes sense... Over 100 balloons were sent to heaven in his memory and dozens of candles were lit, my husband and I sent a letter to our freinds and relatives asking them to remember him by doing that. It was also my chance to write all about him and our heartache and to thank those real freinds who stood by us and who continue to be there for us... You know I do not remember who I was before, how it felt to truly smile, and unfortunately, I will never be truly happy, I will always be half empty, my arm will will always ache and my heart will always be broken until we are reunited in heaven... I love you and miss you Brandon John, Momma and Dadda

Comments: To this day this is the poem I share with you: LITTLE ANGELS -- When God calls little children to dwell with Him above, We mortal sometimes question the wisdom of His love. For no heartache compares with the death of one small child, Who does so much to make our work seem wonderful and mild. Perhaps God tires the aged to His fold, So He picks a rosebud before it can grow old. God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but few, To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view. Believing this is difficult still some how we must try, The saddest word mankind knows will always be, "Good-Bye." So when a little child departs, we who are left behind, Must realize God loves children, Angels are hard to find. (Author Unknown) ...You can see a picture of him in the "Pictures of Love"--Quinnzelle Z. R. Reaves-Margolies. Still after fours year it is hard. He was my first and only child. My heart and prayers goes out to you. You will never forget, and you always have those precious memories, and there is no replacement in the world, but you learn to live with life and cope day-by-day. There are those moments...which do come and go, sparatically...I take in stride. Appreciate what I (you) have now... Thanks for reading! Love, Peace & God Bless!!!! --Aliza Margolies (One of the MANY parents who has lost their child to SIDS.)

Comments: Hi, I was surprised to stumble across this network, it took me 81/2 years to find anything remotely close to a support network for parents, whose chidlren have passed on. If there is anyone interested in creating a meeting or a chat about the children that we have lost, please contact me, I will look into it. It is high time, that we have something like that. My son died 12/12/92, but life has been and still is hard to deal with. It was so unexpectded, and so sudden, even over 8 years later, I still sometimes have a hard time beliving that it happened to ME. Then reality sets in.I have had 2 miscarriages since, and for each one, I seem just to get worse, emotionally. It came to the point, to where I completely withdrew into isolation, from everyone. Didn't even call my Mom. I feel that we need to pull together and prevent another Mom from this. Please email me. Elisabeth.

Having some place to go to to hear from other parents has helped greatly. I will always remember what joy my son brought to our family and will always see his sweet face in my mind. I hold his memory so dear and close nothing can take that away. To my darling angel I dedicate each day and look forward to seeing him again. We love you Kyle Bee and miss you so much, I send you a kiss and a big hug and my heart. You are my little angel. I love you and miss you, Mommy.
