A mothers’ message to her son and to all of you
Ten years ago I gave birth to my angel son
Ten Years ago I learned that “It Can Happen To Me!”
Ten years ago my life started over
Ten years ago I learned to live in another world
A world which wakes you daily with a hurt in your heart that cannot be repaired or explained
Ten years ago I had to say goodbye to my precious baby boy
Ten years ago my son became my biggest teacher
Ten years ago my son became my angel in heaven
Ten years ago, and every day since; I see life through different eyes
Eyes which watch my two sons Cameron and Coty with the greatest love and appreciation
Eyes that look at the world as a place of beauty not to be taken for granted
Eyes that see people in a different light; for nobody knows what a person whom they barely know or may not even care for, may have been through!
Ten years ago I was hardened
Ten years ago I was humbled
Ten years ago I learned what true love is and I pray that I never lose sight of what is important again!
I pray that nobody has to suffer such a loss to realize just how lucky they are, and how precious this life really is
From Earth to Heaven; Mommy loves you Kaden!
Every time I see a butterfly, frog, rainbow, sunrise and sunset…. I see you.
I see you in everything! I see peace, beauty, faith and God!
I miss you baby boy! I cannot believe that you would be ten years old.
It feels like just yesterday that I held you in my arms sang to you and kissed you goodbye.
Forever in my heart,
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
Yes, it does exist!
Make yourself aware of the facts and help in the fight to prevent the loss of our angels. Losing a child is a very hard discussion to have or even think about! It is easier to pretend that it doesn’t happen then to face that infants die every day!
Just as you would fight Cancer, Diabetes, Lupus, Aids, Heart disease, etc.
Why would you not fight to prevent in unexplainable, infant loss?
It is the People who shun the subject who not only hurt others from gaining knowledge in possible prevention, but who also put themselves in the same situation that I was once in. I knew very little about SIDS. Whether I could have prevented the loss of my son Kaden I will never truly know!
Do not be afraid to talk about SIDS, be afraid not to! Please support us in the fight. Educate yourself and others. Support SIDS charities. Reach out to someone you may know who has been through the loos of their child and offer your shoulder. The organization I support is “First Candle.” Check it out at Firstcandle.org.
A very special shout-out to my sons Cameron and Coty who help to raise awareness and money on their own! I could not be more proud of the two of you! You both have huge hearts and set a great example for others! I love you! – Mom
