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!
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.
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.
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.
