What a beautiful website dedicated to your son Thomas. It brought tears to my eyes! My son Mason was a term baby still born at 38 weeks (28th Sept. 1998). This is the first web site I've really looked at since that time and what a truly lovely one it is. Also your painting took my breath away. I couldn't think of a better way to describe the feelings of the loss of a baby.

My sister, Jo Hood, lost her little boy Oliver on the 27th of July 2005. She discovered your site and left you a message on the 18th of September 2005. Your site gave her so much comfort and hope in those dreadful and dark days for us all, but especially Joanne. I read your site often and without exception find tears rolling down my face. I can never begin to imagine the pain suffered by those mums who lose a child. I just pray for you all and your babies. Joanne had a brother for Oliver on the 22nd of November 2006. James and Joanne are doing just fine.

Hiya all, oh my lord, wot a site u have. I came across it looking for the poem "in a baby castle" and couldn't stop reading, crying and even a little smiling. We have 3 little angels, 2 boys and 1 girl and I think of them every day although I have a living child who is the eldest. My babies are still that and I love them all soooooo much and always will.

You have given me strength to get through another day via your site and for that I am grateful. I feel so priveledged to have been able to visit with you and your family for a little while and view such strong emotion that in a lot of ways I am scared to face myself. My living son is now 23 but I always feel the loss of my angels.

For you and all your children we send love and thanks ( and a hug for u all) GOD BLESS

I loved your little one's website! My best friend lost a little boy, Brian, a few years ago. Even though she has had another son, Eli, It still feels like there is someone missing. The oldest son still talks about his Little brother brian a lot. Just because a child is not with you does not mean he was never there. Eli's first birthday is soon and it reminds me of all the things "Miss Amanda" could have got Brian for his birthdays.

Hi my name is Marjorie,

I was affected by acute fatty liver of pregnancy. My waters broke at 37 weeks, on April 2005. This saved my life and one of my sons’ life… Sadly, because it wasn’t diagnosed during the pregnancy (though I did complain), both my sons had a cardiac arrest while I was being monitored. But because Micah was the smallest one, he had his first and was left longer without oxygen. I was taken to theater for an emergency C under general. Both boys were resuscitated… Micah’s brain damages were too important and he died 6 days later, and Sasha has developmental delay… I am fine now: miraculous recovery they called it!

We are now trying for baby number 3… We miss Micah everyday. And because I don’t want his death to be in vain, I am created a website for AFLP. And a forum for people who want to get together… My ultimate goal though is to take it to a preventive level… Reach the medical staff for early detection and expecting families… My husband and I hope that with time we will feel less raw about Micah not being with us... Time will tell.

I love your website and hope time is a healer for you too.

I was so touched by your story and just wanted to send you this poem that I wrote when I lost my baby at 14 week gestation.

Nature Can Be So Cruel.

It hurts to think of what might have been,
I wish you were here, but you'll never be seen,
It breaks my heart that you were taken away,
But I have my memories, they'll always stay,
If you had of lived i'd have loved you so,
What your life would have been, we'll never know,
I'll lways grieve my baby for you,
Nature can be so very cruel.

Good luck to you and your family in the future, Thomas' baby sister is beautiful. xx

Your baby boy Thomas is very gorgeous. You are such a sweet and loving Mommy. The day and year you found out you were pregnant with your son was the day I gave birth to Lilike. But Lilike was sick the day she was born so I did not get to spend much time with her. Because an hour after her birth she was cool and needed 23-28% oxygen for fluid on the lungs in a humidicrib overnight and and an iv antibiotics for a very high white cell count. I just recently had a miscarriage in 2007 after giving birth to the most healthy baby boy. It was heartbreaking. I never had a miscarriage before.

I so much appreciated your web site for your baby. People say time heals all wounds. I lost twin girls in 1974, 21 weeks gestation, no reason known. I still miss my girls. I lost a 15 month old son to an accident in 1971. But I raised two other boys to healthy adulthood, and I can say that while the wound has not healed, it is only a sharp pain sometimes now and just a gentle ache I have learned to live with the rest of the time. However, grandchildren have made all the difference.

My granddaughter fills that empty space in my heart to overflowing, and I swear, the four year old boy, (out of three grandsons) looks like Wayne would have looked and if Wayne were still here we'd all be saying Wyatt sure takes after his uncle Wayne. So I guess it might take a lot of life but we can survive the death of a child. The first two years I didn't think I could. If I had know how good grandchildren were going to be I'd have had more kids.

Also one practical point, when my daughter in law was expecting the 7 yr old, she felt uneasy the last week, the baby was just coming due and she kept wanting to go to the hospital, they wanted to send her home, I took a stand with the doctor and we convinced him to induce the baby the first day it was an option, well the baby had the cord wrapped around his neck and wouldn't have survived another week in vitro the older he got the tighter the cord got. The dr said it's lucky we did induce. I think all women should be told, if the mother thinks something is wrong, there probably is. I noticed in a lot of the stillbirth stories, the mother thought something was wrong and the dr didn't listen, thank you for your beautiful website, peace to you and your family.
