Prayers request (SIDS ment)

I would like to ask you if you can, send a prayer to my online friend Sarah and her family. When I woke up today I found out that her sweet baby Olivia passed away on Thursday, just 5 days shy of her 6 monhts birthday. The investigation is still ongoing about the baby's death but all signs do point to SIDS. They were putting the baby to sleep on her tummy for several months now and thought she's used to it, so she would be fine. I am heart broken, this was an IVF baby and I know how long they were waiting and how much she meant for them. SIDS scares me to death too.... that will be my biggest worry because it's so unpredictable and even though there are lots of common sense things the parents can do, there is still that little percentage of babies who still die. I am really scared (I know that most babies are fine but still !!) and I am upset over Olivia's death and still cannot believe it. I am not going to have a good day today :( Who would think that 6 monhts old can still suddenly die from SIDS when sleeping on her tummy like she was used to for monhts !!

Please send them some prayers ...

Sending prayers. Same exact thing that happened to my cousin around the same age. If you haven't already invested in this Angel Monitor thing you may want to.

I found your blog through Google. My husband & I have been trying to get pregnant for almost 3 years, and we are also starting the adoption process. I was looking for someone who is in the adoption process and also pregnant, to read about their thoughts, and that's how I found you. I enjoy reading your posts about the China adoption. I also clicked on your profile & saw that you follow the blog, Burkett Quad Squad, and I went to school with Brian Burkett! Small world! Anyway I just wanted to let you know I found your blog & I'm enjoying reading it!

That is truly heartbreaking. I can't imagine the grief in their hearts right now. I will definitely pray for them tonight, that God brings them hope and faith. And don't worry, God has differnt paths for all of us. Just have faith that you will have a blessed experience. Hugs.
