I'm new to this community. My name is April and almost 6 yrs ago (Jan 21, 2004) my 23 hour old infant son passed away. I had a complicated pregnancy and the dr's said everything will be ok and most likely my son will need surgery on his throat. Turned out it wasn't his throat, it was his brain. He was born brain dead and had no chance of survival. I gave birth at 37 wks, his name was Shawn Alexander Martinez, he weighed 5 lbs and 2 ozs. My other son (Gabe is almost 3 yrs old) started pre-school this year and I feel sadder this year than the past couple of yrs. I was also blessed with a baby girl (Natalia, 18 months). It's hard to recover from a loss so i guess I'm looking for a support group that fully understands what I'm going through.
