    Good Morning!  I have a friend, who lost her daughter to SIDS.  She is a true leader in this community and has written an article for my site on this topic. I would love to give her the bag. I asked her to do a write up to help educate people who have not been through this and to help women who have.  It is a very important topic and I am glad you are bringing awareness for everyone! Thank you!

    In May 2006 i lost my first baby. I was so excited to be a first time mom. I got to keep that happiness for a few days. I started bleeding and cramping hard and long story but i ended up finding out it was ectopic. I did go on to have 2 amazing boys. Then in September 2009 i found out i was pregnant again, and that sweet angel went to heaven as well. I still cry for my 2 sweet angels.
    My sister also lost her son. My angel nephew Weston in January 2008, born 4 months stillborn. Its heartbreaking.

    This year a sids awareness pageant was started near the town i live in so i put my daughter in it. They will have one every year and i plan to continue to let her participate. She didnt win this last one and it isnt about her winning. Its about supporting a cause.

     I am so sorry for your losses!! I lost my first son, he was stillborn January 21. I found out the day after he was due that he no longer had a heart beat. In May, 2 days before mothers day I found out I was pregnant again, I told my husband and we told our mothers for mothers day. That baby was due Janury 21. July 17th at 13 weeks I had a dnc because the baby had stopped growing at 10 weeks and no longer had a heart beat. That baby was a girl.

    It is so hard to lose one baby, but to lose two in such a short time is very hard as well.

    Just curious, why would you be burying your baby by the end if the month


    Quoting LilysMommy813:

    I just posted a note and photo on my Facebook reminding people that October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month ( I didn't know about SIDS)

    My friend is burying her baby on Saturday and I should be burying mine at the end of the month, so it is very close to home for all my friends and family
