I really feel for all the parents who have lost an infant to SIDS. My good friend and her sister have each lost a baby to SIDS. I can feel their pain. In September 2002 I lost my 3rd child who was stillborn. The Medical Examiner concluded that it was SADS (Sudden Anti-natal Death Syndrome) basically SIDS before birth. I was 35 weeks pregnant and my world fell apart. I have lost friends and family before, but nothing prepared me for the death of my child! Luckily, I had a wonderful husband, support group and grief counselor to help me through. It brought me and my husband much closer. Even 8 years later I still question myself if I did everything right. The pain of losing him has eased up, but will always be with me. The "what if´s" never go away though.
