Thank you for visiting our pages. We would love it if you would Add to this guestbook we are keeping!

Hola Clau: Acabo de leer detenidamente en español tu pagina y la verdad que mas alla de que uno se imagina lo doloroso de su experiencia, queria felicitarte por lo que hiciste, vos y tu flia para la prevencion de casos de vasa previa. He comprendido mucho mejor el tema y he quedado nuevamente impactada. Queria de paso saludarte por navidad y año nuevo. Espero que hayan pasado excelente fiesta y que hay ausencias que se pueden llevar con uno, dentro de uno y ahi estan. ojala pudiera ir a abrazarte o de alguna manera hacer estado mas cerca. Lo importante es que no te olvido, te deseo lo mejor y ojala la vida nos reencuentre en algun momento.

My dear angel baby Matthew, I've been thinking about you so much lately. Although the holidays were special with your brother Steven, they certainly weren't the same without you. And today is your birthday. Happy 1st birthday in Heaven my precious baby! I can't believe an entire year has gone by. Your daddy and I were getting ready to welcome you into the world just as you were spreading your wings and God was calling you back home. How I would love to go back to the morning of January 12th, 2005 when you were still safe inside my belly. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you. If I could change what has happened I would but I know that I can’t. Your death was the most painful tragedy I have ever experienced. I know that one day we will be with you again. Until then, I will do my best to raise your twin brother Steven, who is absolutely beautiful and is the joy in our lives. I don’t think I could have survived without him. Steven reminds me of you in many ways and I can imagine how the two of you would be doing the same things together, growing up side by side. It would have been wonderful to see the two of you play together. Although the physical connection is gone, I know that you live through his energy. Today on your 1st angel birthday I want you to know that I carry you in my heart and you will never be forgotten. My love for you is just as strong as the day I found out I was pregnant with you both. And through this painful grieving process, I realized that you have given me the strength to continue with my life, to be a mom to your brother and a wife to your daddy. I also know that you are here with us everyday, watching over us and taking care of us. We feel your presence and your spirit. I am a proud Mommy of my two boys and I was blessed to have you both. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to have known you for as briefly as it was. As I promised you Matthew, I will continue to create more awareness on vasa previa so that other babies will be spared from this awful fate. Matthew, to me you are 'the salt of the earth' and 'the light of the world'. You are my precious baby, our guiding spirit and we love you very much. Love your Mommy and Family

Dearest little Matthew, Today is a special day. I want you to know that there are many of us on earth that remember you and think of you all the time. You are greatly missed and loved. I want to wish you a Happy 1st Birthday in heaven. May the angels be singing songs to you on your birthday. Love your Aunt Michelle, Uncle Domenic and cousin Nicolas.

I hope you complained to the proper department of the hospital and doctors association about what happened to you. this should be considered a malpractise on the doctors part. I see Matthew when I go to see my Dad and Grandmother. they died in a house fire 2 1/2 years ago. Also one of the baby girls near Matthew I know her parents. My yonger son's name is Matthew to. I don't know what it's like to lose a child, but I do know whats it's like to lose someone you love very much from one day to the next. If you every need someone to talk to, you can e-mail me at or if you want you can call me at 905-857-9235, I live in Bolton. Sincerly, Pina Tantalo

Hi Claudia, I'm not cure if you remember me or not, but my daughter is also resting at Queen of Heaven, her name is Sara. We spoke briefly a few months ago or so, (my daughter is in the same area your pre-natal classmate's child is) do you remember me? Today I went by to see my daughter and also passed by my other relatives and your son to say a prayer. I noticed the web address and just looked it over a couple of minutes ago. I think this is a wonderful thoughtful site for your son angel Matthew. Your other son , Matthew's twin Steven is adorable, already a year has gone by, how time flies, Happy Belated Birthday!! And what a husband was also born on January 12. Well Claudia, this is a beautiful web site and maybe we will see you at Queen of Heaven. My prayers are with you and your family, God Bless.

wow i cryed reading this story! my daughter had a beautiful baby girl born jan. 6th 2006 and i can't even begin to know how you felt. you have a very beautiful baby boy and i hope all good things comes your way from now on! you deserve it! all i can say is love both of them with all your heart, and time heals all. my daughter was told she had vasa previa but the cords was 3 centameters away so she was told she could have her normal and so she tryed and after 9 hrs. in labor they took her c cection and i was so relevied when they put her in the hospital, the cord was around her neck 4 times and that is why she was not born normal. my daughter heard the dr. say it was vasa previa. and time stoped until she heard the baby cry. so i say a prayer every day thanking god for saving these beautiful baby's and i will always say a prayer for the ones in our hearts like matthew. :-( steven is so cute!! janet(grandma)

I've been looking for pictures of multiple births when I came to this site which contained very sad but inspiring (somewhat educational too) stories about grieving for the loss of babbies (that is this very day). That's when I came across baby Mathews story. I have been crying all throughout the time reading all the stories in that site. I haven't lost a child in my life, but I can't explain why I feel so shattered about every single one of the stories, especially about Mathew. You see, I've been a mother since I Turned 20 yrs old. I almost lost her also, for she was born prematurely and was hospitalized 2 weeks after her birth due to LBM and not drinking milk anymore. That was one of the hardest time in my life also. After 7 yrs, I bore another baby girl (she's 1 yr and 10 8 months now.). Guess what her name is..Nyssa Mathea. Nyssa means beggining and Mathea is a female name for Mathew.."Gift of God". I have another surprise for you.. I'm 17 weeks pregnant with my third child. I already had an Ultra sound..but my baby hid his/her thinggy. My husband wishes for a baby boy. But for me, any will do, as long as He/she is healthy and normal. All I can say is. Thank you for sharing your knowledge about the bitter sweet event that happened in your lives. I really think that a lot of people will open their eyes about not just having kids, but loving them wholeheartedly and treasuring them as long as we live. Our babies are not our own, but they are only here to be raised,loved and treasured because God wants us to share the feeling of love. Our little ones may come to us, but you know, we don't really own them. They were only lend to us by God for sometime until they grow and have a life or a family of their own. But sometimes life is touch and go.One minute they're in our arms, and just as second..they're gone. We just have to be thankfull that somehow we Have seen and heard Mathew's life. There are parents in this world who have lost too but never had the chance to show and let their baby feel the way that you had showed Mathew how much you loved him even in spirit. I've said a lot already. I only wish the best for the three of you. Kisses to Steven (Such a handsome and charming boy). May you always have that love wherever you go. God Bless you all and I hope next time I would see an addition to your family (Perhaps a baby girl?). Take care. I would really tell my friends here about Mathew's site. I will help you propagate here in the Philippines. Thank you for your time.

Hi, I'm a medical student from Malaysia. I'm doing my revision for my final exam when i browse through the net searching on the topic 'vasa praevia'. From your sharing, it reminded me much of the reason why i wanted to become a doctor in the first place. Many things could have been prevented if only doctors would care to listen and treat their patients as how they would want themselves to be treated. Matthew, your very cute little boy, who is very much alive, i'm sure in your hearts and in my heart too, will always be a reminder to me to be serious with my future job as a doctor and spare a little of my time if not more for my patients. i trully believe Matthew is with the Father in heaven, no doubt on that. Steven is such a dear boy...very cute. Praise the Lord he is well and healthy. God has a plan for each and everyone of us, for your family too. Do take care and may God shower His blessings upon u.
