SIDS Awareness Day



I'd like to post some links here in honor of SIDS awareness day. For Aias's entire infancy, we were plagued by the fear of SIDS. The stories of families stricken by this awful tragedy break my heart and always make me hug Aias a little tighter for a little longer. There are certainly many moments where I feel frustrated with toddler tantrums and teething, but I know that there are families out there who would give anything to be able to experience those things with their lost angel. I truly hope that medical research shines a light on this horrible mystery in my lifetime. No family should ever have to lose a child.

Faces of Loss is an emotionally moving blog which aims to put a face on miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss. I want to post the link to the SIDS tag in memory of these babies and others that have been taken away too soon.

The CJ Foundation for SIDS is one of the largest and leading SIDS organizations in the United States. "Since its inception, the CJ Foundation has provided millions of dollars towards SIDS research projects, organizations, support programs and public education and awareness campaigns throughout the nation, making tremendous strides in its fight to eliminate SIDS" (taken from their website).

Finally, I want to point out this extremely helpful and active SIDS page on Facebook,  SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndome) Research.

Hug your babies tightly, everyone.

I've adopted the same commenting policy as seen here at Off Beat Mama (http://offbeatmama.com/about/comments). I won't post comments if they strike me as attacking, judgmental, rude, or unproductive. In general if you are willing to put your name to something, I'll post it, but remember to keep your words sweet, because someday you may have to eat them.
