I don't know how to start this, there are no words to make this any easier...my hands are shaking as I type this, b/c each time we have to say what has happened, it becomes more and more real.
You all may remember that my sister had a baby boy on February 20th of this year. I shared the pictures from his birth, and his newborn portraits. He was a beautiful, beautiful baby boy.
Sean Matthew passed away Tuesday morning, just 9 days short of six months old. He was asleep in his crib--he managed to grab a blanket that was draped over the crib rail (not even in the crib with him), got tangled up in the blanket, and lost his life.
My sister found him. She is beyond devastated. I have never in my life witnessed such agony, and I hope I never ever do again. We do take peace and solace knowing he is in heaven with the Lord, but the pain here on Earth is very real.
Please, please ladies--keep blankets out of cribs. We've all heard the warnings, myself included, but never experienced the most awful pain of knowing why those warnings exist. You feel like the whole world should stop spinning and acknowledge the pain.
It's hard for me to say any more right now, I'll just share a few pictures. They were supposed to come over Monday for more portraits. I...............
Hearing his first cry..
Sorry, I just keep posting pictures. It's all I have right now.
Please pray for her and our family. This is the most difficult thing we have ever faced. I love you all dearly, I know this is a photography board, but I also have dear friends here and I know we have your support.
