There's no words to accurately describe what its like to walk into a bedroom and find your baby blue. Just writing that makes me sick. My husband and I, are unfortunately no strangers to this, our baby Delilah has been blue more times than we can count. It's every parents worst nightmare. It's completely unnatural.
But we are the lucky ones.
Yes, lucky. Because every time she's been revived at hospital, or at home, we've been told we were lucky. Lucky we're not labelling this a SIDS incident because SIDS is past tense. We cannot bring ourselves to imagine how devastating it would be.
Sudden infant death Syndrome is the unexplained death of a precious soul. in our world of technology and medical advances, there are still hundreds of families like ours and families who have gone through much much worse, who cannot explain what is happening/ what has happened to the most wonderful gift the world can ever give.
You can help change that.
