“I didn’t want to kiss you goodbye, that was the trouble; I wanted to kiss you goodnight. And there’s a lot of difference.” Ernest Hemingway
Hi my name is Sasha, I live in the Great Pacific Northwest with my husband, Stacy, our 2 dogs and our beautiful angel baby, Grey. We had 87 magical days with our son before he was taken from us by the mystery of SIDS on March 17th, 2017. The days and months since his passing have been the most challenging times I have ever experienced. I get asked sometimes, “How do you do it?” or “I couldn’t imagine,” and honestly, I agree! I can’t imagine and I don’t know. I think about the love I have for my son and it simultaneously fills me with incredible joy and crushing sadness. One thing I know for sure, I am so thankful for my support system; my husband, family, friends and co-workers. I am thankful for the other SIDS mom’s I have met and the internet, really, the internet! Reading other families stories, seeing normal people affected by SIDS and how they are coping makes this journey a little less isolating. This blog is my way of honoring my son and his beautiful time with us, because really, all I want to do is talk about him everyday. I want him to be proud of me. Sharing his story and my journey feels right, no matter how terrified I am to do it.
