Welcome to In His Name

We are an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We hope to offer comfort to those affected by a devastating loss to SIDS {Sudden Infant Death Syndrome} or SUID {Sudden Unexplained Infant Death} through educational resources, grief support, community, and prayer. We will be sending out the "SIDS Survival Kits" to families in Alabama and Tennessee, and will extend our support to any family that finds themselves on this hard, lonely grief journey. Our goal is to reach newly bereaved parents as soon as possible after their loss of an infant. To order a kit or to find out more about our kit, please go to the SIDS Survival Kit page, or click here. No one should have to walk this road alone!

Thank You's

Last week, our site had the honor of being featured on the blog Honoring Our Angels.

Monica, who lost her precious daughter Devon in November 2008 started this site as a way to provide a list of resources available to those who have lost children. She says on her blog:

"I started Honoring Our Angels to serve as a resource for all those that have lost a child. I know that after Devon passed away, I only heard about available resources through word of mouth. I searched tirelessly through the Internet to find what I was needing only to have most of my time wasted. Honoring Our Angels is that resource that I always wished I had.

I hope that you can feel connected to others that have experienced similar loss, find the resources that you are needing, and find opportunities and way of giving back and serving others that are struggling."

I know after we lost Julius, I was desperate to find resources to help me deal with the immense pain. I was blessed enough to have a very good friend that unfortunately had, herself, lost her precious daughter three months before. She understood the feelings/emotions I was dealing with, and she sent me tons of links, books, etc. to help me during those first couple of weeks when I couldn't do anything for myself. But when I was "strong" enough I had to search and search for other resources, especially SIDS related resources, groups, etc. My hope is that our site may help those families affected by SIDS/SUID. I hope that we can provide them with helpful resources, put them in contact with helpful people with the SIDS community, and that we can, at the very least, walk with them on their grief journey.

Monica, I thank you for featuring our blog, giving us another amazing avenue in which to reach families in need, and providing your support to us and our little man for whom we live!

If you have experienced a loss, or know someone who has, please check out Honoring Our Angels for a list of resources available to you, and to see how you can help those in need.

In His Name was also mentioned in the last newsletter sent out by Tiny Handprints {TH}. They are undergoing a "metamorphosis" of sorts, and we will be continuing the legacy that Jacob and the loving people at TH have started {with their help and prayers, of course}. If you have a moment, check out the newsletter and see what's going on.

Stephanie, thank you so much for everything that you have done for us and for those families that have been affected by SIDS/SUID. I can't tell you what a blessing it was for us to receive the kit you sent. It would be such an honor to reach just a fraction of the people that you all have. I am eternally grateful for you, Jacob, and all of the TH staff!
