The Day My Baby Died

The joyful new mom I was — died that day too

Twenty-four years ago, this month, my first-born son Connor died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS.) He was 3 months and twenty-four day’s old.

While the days and weeks after he died are not always clear (I believe that’s the mind’s way of dealing with profound grief) the day he died is seared on my brain forever.



Authentically sharing stories and poems from the heart about our experience of being human and our ongoing process of becoming perfectly imperfect. Writing mostly real and raw with a sprinkle of microfiction!
