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!

A New Year - January Angels

It's the start of a new year. It's always amazing to me how quickly time passes, even though when we are in the midst of our grief, it feels as though it is standing still. I remember how glad I was to be done with 2010, because it was the year that our son passed away. But once it hit 2011, I realized that I really didn't want 2010 to end because even though Julius passed away in that year, it was also the year in which he was born, and the year that I was given the best gift of all - my son.

I'm not really sure what to make of 2012. I know that I would like to be hopeful that this year will bring us happiness. But I know that our grief for our son will continue, so I know that we will also see pain this year too. I'm just going to try and take it one day at a time, and pray that we are able to continue doing good things in our son's name. And I pray that 2012 brings all of you happiness and joy in the midst of the pain!

As we did last year, we will continue to recognize those angels who's dates fall within the month each month.

This month we remember:
If you would like your child's special dates added to our calendar, please send me an email, and I will make sure to get them included! ♥

Hi Tiff--I am wishing you and Dennis a beautiful year this year, and much joy alongside the pain. Here's something I did in my most difficult years to 'keep going' . . . I looked for the 'unexpected' good in every day. I knew that certain feelings would be by my side whether I wanted them to be there or not. I knew what would haunt my days. But I could not guess what might lighten them. I bless whatever gave me the inspiration to notice that every day was actually not the same grim round of repeated worry or sadness or regret. Nothing will ever expunge Julius, the wonder of him, the wrenching sadness of being without him. Still, there are many things coming to your days that you do not expect, that can lighten the burden of grief. Be on the lookout! Hugs. Penny
