I lost my 4.5 mo old daughter Ghayde (pronounced like Jade) to SIDS on 9.2.08 and after losing my mother a little over a year earlier I knew the devastation that followed. I wanted to be more prepared so I went online for support groups... and found Tiny Handprints. Stephanie and the rest of the team are AMAZING! They kept in touch with me during that first year, sending me little cards and books to help me journey through my grief... and read my rambling middle of the night e-mails. To be brutally honest, if it wasn't for Tiny Handprints, I don't know that I would be a stable individual today... they keep me grounded still and are always there when I need them!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my soul and my life. I have seen the changes effected by Tiny Handprints in the lives of my family and friends, my support system locally.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it bigger and closer to me!!! I want to do more to help =)

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fact that I was accepted and have made a life long friend in Stephanie. Everyone involved is doing this from the heart and you can see it and feel it in every word you read.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I've actually not 'officially' met anyone from the organization... but I feel very close to several of the women and we're sisters for life.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do sooo much more to raise awareness and raise even more money for research if not only to find a cause but maybe to find a way to see which babies may be higher risk at birth!

Ways to make it better...

if I was closer to the organization... I would love to personally meet all the wonderful people involved, esp those that helped me.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

is time, and man power. I'm just guessing here because I'm not directly involved. I know they do everything they can to raise awareness and money though.

One thing I'd also say is that...

On Sept 26, 2009 I lost my first and only grandchild to SIDS ( Logan Raymond Gould) Tinyhandprints will remain in my heart and soul forever- This group reached out and help my daughter when no one else did. My daughter and I struggled immensely with many traumatic events- My son suffered a severe brain injury from a mis-diagnosed sinus infection and he was in a coma for 3 months and still struggles to progress. I lost my job of 24 yrs due to being by his bedside During this time my daughter was pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful baby boy Logan Raymond Gould. Logan was our saving grace from this terrifying event we were going through with my son. 8 months later my daughter got the call while at work her son Logan was blue and was transported to the hospital. Our precious angel was gone- Lost to SIDS We both have lost our jobs and when we needed help TINUHANDS was there for us when no one else was. They help us pay for Logan's headstone this was truly a blessing for us Thank you from the bottom of my heart- I know if there was more you could do for us you would have but just keeping in touch and letting us know you were there to help will always remain in my heart Thank you so much Carol Gould

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

in many ways . From simple words of encoiragement to monetary help for a headstone

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

nothing at all- they are the most compassionate and professional people I have met

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the compassion, love and support

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

truly Heaven sent

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

shower those in need with so much help

Ways to make it better...

N/A

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

not enough resources inorder for them to continue to bless others in time of need

One thing I'd also say is that...

You will always remain in my heart for the help you have given my child to bury her infant son

Tiny Handprints was there for me when my precious little girl died of SIDS last June. Stephanie talked with me and answered all of my questions and offered me hope of going into the future without my daughter. In the year that my daughter has been gone, Tiny Handprints has sent us grief materials and reached out to us to let us know that we were not alone.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their outreach to us during a difficult time.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

knowledgeable and kind.

When my son Josua died, I was looking for answers, and none seemed to be forth coming. In a time of darkness and personal despair, I found Tiny Handprints. They sent me printed materials about things I could do to cope, stories of others who had been in the same situations, and information on what was going on, even though I didnt have all the answers. They have provided so much to my family in my time of need, so I actively try to promote it to others who are in need, and I have plans of someday trying to help donate to this charity, to try to bring it to every family that needs a little faith, hope, love, and support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My daily life, as well as the lives of my loved ones who had to endure the tragedy of infant death with me.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide more funding to be able to bring the support and help to more who need it, and get it started in hospitals, the first place it is needed.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The support that was given to me in my time of need.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Helpful, supportive, and non judgmental. They were everything I needed, even if I didnt know I needed it.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Bring the message, and the materials and volunteers to hospitals, ground zero so to speak.

Ways to make it better...

If I had been able to find this organization and their message the day my son died, or if it had been presented to me in the hospital before leaving my son behind.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding, and out reach. They go hand in hand. If we could get Tiny Handprints more funding so they could be at the source, the hospital, I think it would be even more effective than it is now.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Someday, when I have the time and money, I would love to donate more funds and volunteer more time to this cause, to help others as I myself was helped.

After my son died of SIDS in August 2009, I had no idea where to even START looking for support. Tiny Handprints found me, and went out of their way to make sure I had everything (reading material, people to talk to, etc) I possibly could imagine to help me begin to grieve. I haven't done much more than read the information given to me; but would recommend them anytime to someone who just needs some support, and isn't sure about anything. After my son died, it was a day at a time with going forward with life, and everytime I get to read the book and information I've recieved FREE from them, without asking- I know I have as much support as I could want each day.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own home?

Stephanie from Tinyhandprints found me when I was deep in the middle of my grief. She sent me books, support and the kind of friendship that I had been longing for. I am so thankful for this organization and all that it has done and is still doing for all of us parents affected by the loss of a child to sids.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

so many aspects of my life

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the people who run it. They are amazing and have such big hearts.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the type of people you want to be life long friends with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help parents all over the world
