My husband and I walked into SIDS Resources two weeks after we lost our son, George. We were beside ourselves with grief, struggling each day just to breathe. SIDS Resources saved us. There is truly nothing more tragic than the death of a baby and many of our friends and family were afraid to talk about what happened to our son. SIDS Resources provided a safe place to come together with other grieving parents and talk openly about the experience of losing a child. Most importantly, by talking to "experienced parents" and the SIDS counselors, we found hope for the future. We found a way to celebrate the tremendous joy that Baby George brought to our family for the very brief time he was with us. When we discovered we were expecting another baby, the SIDS counselors and other parents helped us through the tremendous anxiety that it could happen again. It's been five years since we lost George and we have since been blessed with two beautiful daughters. We still miss George every single day, but we're living again - and we're very happy. I don't know how we would have survived without SIDS Resources.
