Scott was reading the news and came to the story of the infant who stopped breathing only to discover that was our neighbor's baby.
I simply cannot fathom what it is like to loose your infant child, or a child at all. I hope I never ever have to know what that feels like. Our hearts are breaking for this family. We had been over to trick or treat with our boys in October and knew the couple loved sitting on their porch swing in the evenings. They seemed very nice. Scott and the father exchanged a brief conversation once about their love of the Green Bay Packers and I've seen the mom load the baby up in the car on several occasions as I rock my little one to sleep from his bedroom window in the afternoons. The baby was about four months old and did have respiratory problems but SIDS is what took his life and any parent that has to go through this unbearable event, has my deepest sympathies. We have donated to their memorial fund for their child and yesterday they had the funeral and I just can't imagine having to say goodbye to your baby that you have so many hopes and dreams for.
Please if you have the ability I'd love for you to donate or at least share and help Baby Colt's parents out with any expenses that they may have from this horrible tragedy. I know they probably have some medical bills to pay, for his emergency care when they called 911.
My heart goes out to any parent who has had to say goodbye to their child.
