SIDS Resources, Inc.
June 27, 2010

We lost our 3 week old daughter Madison suddenly and unexpectedly in January 2005. Not knowing where to turn, a SIDS grief counselor was at our house the very next day with a packet of information and the SIDS Survival Guide. We soon began attending the support group meetings and they were a lifesaver. Just having a safe place to talk about our loss and the daily struggles we faced helped us tremendously as none of our peers could understand what we were going through. Suddenly, we didn't feel so alone. I don't know how we could have survived that first year without the support of SIDS Resources. We were especially grateful for the candlelighting ceremony in December because we wanted to commemorate our daughter's birthday that month, but weren't sure how to do it - so the candlelighting has become a nice tradition to say Happy Birthday & Merry Christmas to our sweet girl.
