Thank you for visiting our pages.
We would love it if you would Add to
this guestbook we are keeping!
We lost our baby boy to Vasa Previa almost 6 weeks ago. I have
read your story and the feelings that you feel are so like the things
I feel. It really is horrendous, the emptiness is enormous and at
times my life feels like it has no meaning. However I have just
looked at your beautiful photographs and I can see that throughout
all the pain that you are surviving and that is a big help.
Both of your sons are beautiful. May Matthew be resting in peace
along with my son Alfonso and I'm sure one day we will see our babies
All the best for the future

Claudia, After I got your email, I saw your website- it
definitely brought tears to my eyes. You have done a wonderful job
putting that together to help other parents. I am sending the link
to your website to all my friends.

Thanks for sharing your story. I’m sure you are helping
so many women and their babies.
It has really helped me prepare to ask my OB some questions. My
last delivery, although a single, has some small similarities to
yours, although I don’t really know if they were medically
similar. I do know my baby‘s heartbeat was alarmingly low
by the time I got to the hospital and that I had an emergency c.
I arrived at the hospital a little before 3pm and the baby was taken
within 30 minutes later. I don’t even know if it was a vertical
or not. In my case, they got to him in time (the spinal block had
not taken place and I felt the first half of the C and screamed
the entire time). My doctor told me, “Sara, you’re going
to be fine, but this baby has got to come out NOW.” The pathology
of the placenta and cord, as explained to me by my doctor, indicated
a tear and “cord compromise.” I am now going to ask
many more questions specifically about what was found, as I am pregnant
with my 3rd (4th pregnancy, miscarried last pregnancy due to blighted
ovum) and am suffering from an SCH. My OB is taking my situation
very seriously, and I’ll be having my 5th ultrasound this
Friday at the high risk maternal fetal medicine center. You have
really helped me in developing further questions and in educating
me about conditions I was unaware of.
Thank you again so much for your site. You are very strong and special

Your story, losing a twin right at birth, touched my heart.
I went to your website, and just sat there and starred at the picture
poems for quite a while. How does something like that happen??!!
I don't understand how come things happen the way they do -- you
losing a twin, me losing a son at 3.5 months to SIDS, others with
gut-wrenching stories of loss as well. Grief is such a process --
a lifelong process -- and unless losing a child has happened to
you as an individual, you can't know how difficult it is. I hope
able to get some support from strong places. We are now very close
friends with two other families who lost sons to SIDS -- all of
having our losses within 9 months of each other. Our friendships
with those families are so close, so understanding, and will last
time I am certain.
Hugs to you, Claudia. I am happy you have a new
baby daughter now, too!

I'm just now seeing that you wrote in my son, Eric James
Tucker's guestbook. I read Matthews memorial & he was born on
my son Jeffrey's birthday. Jeffrey was born 19 months after Eric
died. It has been 36 years that Eric died but the pain never goes
away. Anytime you want to have a cry on someones shoulder that knows
exactly how you feel please write me. Beleive me I still cry about
my precious little boy.

I just spent more than an hour reading about your precious Matthew.
There are no words that I can say that can bring him back or even
make you feel better. I just want to say that you’re are doing
the right thing in pursuing legal actions against the doctors involved
in your case. No parent should have to go through this.
I saw your post on the Yahoo SCH group, which I am also registered
since we found out my wife’s SCH. It was a scary experience
for us but thank God, our son was born on 11/28/06 without any complications.
Thanks to all the members at that group, we were able to cope with
SCH. I’m sure many members will miss you there after you leave
but your contributions will always remain there for others to read.
Steven and Erica are lucky to have you and your husband as their
parents. But they are even more blessed to have Matthew as their
angel watching over them.

Dear little Matthew,
Your cousin Nicolas, Zio Dom and myself would like to wish you a
Heavenly Christmas. I think of you all the time. Your brother Steven
is a wonderful boy and your sister Erica is so beautiful. I know
you will watch over them. We all miss you dearly.
Lots of hugs and kisses for you Matthew.
Your loving tia, Michelle

Wishing you a heavenly 2nd birthday! May the angels in heaven be

We miss you!

My beautiful son Matthew,
I haven’t written in your guestbook since your last birthday.
The first year after your passing was very difficult. I was so happy
with your brother Steven but grieving so much over you. This second
year has also been difficult but time is helping us heal. I am coping
with your death better but remember you always. With the arrival
of your little sister Erica this past summer, your Mommy has been
very busy at home. I watch your brother and sister play and laugh,
and they are growing so fast…I just wish you were here with
them. I know you are always watching over us. Not only do I believe
in this but you let me know this in many ways, especially through
my dreams. And they are such beautiful dreams. You never speak directly
to me but there’s no need to because your message comes very
clear. Through these dreams you have given me a glimpse of where
you are and you have given me comfort knowing that you are in peace.
If it is Heaven and I believe it is, then it is truly glorious.
It is hard to explain in words but to best describe it, it is the
most beautiful place imaginable, full of warmth and calm and it
is a feeling I have never experienced before. This feeling of pure
and unconditional love is the most wonderful feeling in the world
that fills my heart.
We will celebrate your brother’s birthday with as much joy
and love as possible never forgetting that you would also be celebrating
your second birthday right by his side. I love you so much my son…
Love, Mommy Claudia and Family XOXOX
