I am so sorry for all of your losses. Kelly, my daughters were born in March of 2008 as well. Each of our stories different so I can't begin to imagine how difficult losing a child to SIDS must have been like. One thing I do know though is that talking or writing about the pain helps a little. If any of you ladies would like to talk, please feel free to email me directly. I have met several wonderful women after my loss and we have started a support group here in Maine. It helps to have people who understand the unique situation we are all in. Peace.

Thanks for the resource.  I just gave birth to identical twin boys, Cody and Michael, in March 2008.  I was blessed that they were very healthy. Sadly, Cody died of SIDS at 5 months.  It is hard going on without my son and without twins.

Quoting Cathie:

CLIMB and Jean were of great help when we lost our one of our twin daughters. Macy and Tara were born May 15, 1996. Macy will be 13 this May and it's still hard to realize that Tara is not with us, but it has gotten a lot easier, the pain I mean. For those of you who the pain is very fresh, I grieved and cried and wept for days and weeks. It was actually when Macy turned four months that i realized I had gotten thru a full day without crying. But it does get easier. Of course seeing twin baby girls was very hard for many years and actually just the last three years I'd say can I now look at them without breaking down. If anyone would like to email and share ther story or just talk to me I have loads and loads of compasion and would LOVE to listen to your story and hear about your precious little baby boy or baby girl that has gone on to be in heaven with my little Tara. With Tara, she was a "going longer" death. I did get to see her thanks to Jean's urging us to. She was so beautiful. Well that's all for me for now. God bless you all who are going thru this and I know there are many. If there are any parents of surviving twins around the age of my girl 12-13, i'd love to chat with you. Thanks so much, Blessings, Cathie OH, and thoughs of you who have just found out you have lost your twin or twins I'd suggest contacting Jean right away, and also getting her newsletter, it will be a really huge help with your grieving (mom and dad) in the coming months and severel years ahead.



 



I will have to check out this group CLIMB. I too lost one of my twins. A son. My boys Chris and Mike were born on November 23, 1994. I miscarried Chris early in the pregnancy and the pregnancy and accompanied Pre-Eclapsia were brutal. I had a difficult delivery with Mike first then had to give birth to his still-born twin Chris. They whisked Mike off to the NICU after they finally got him breathing after 2 full long minutes. He was jaunticed and had a breathing tube inserted to help him breath. I had my husband go with him so he did not have to witness my son Chris' birth. It has been 14 years and I am so grateful that except for asthma Mike is mostly healthy, big and strong. But, I can't stop grieving and I was denied the opportunity to bury my son. Because of this my husband refuses to believe he even exsisted. I don't talk about my loss to him at all. My son does know he was a twin though and I let him know he can ask me anything at all.  It would be awesome to chat about your surviving twins with you.

I also agree whole-heartedly. Jean is an amazing person who has dedicated her life to helping those of us who have lost one of more from a multiple birth. Also eLIMBO is a very active support group online where I have found some peace through this ongoing journey.
