I wrote yesterday but so far no one has responded. Does anyone know anyone that's child has been affected by shaken baby syndrome? My daughter was shaken by our daycare provider at 6 months of age and is now 7. She has a lot of effects as a result. I would love to talk to other people that have been affected by this horrible syndrome.

I do not have any children with SBS, but someone in our church does. As a result she had a stroke. It causes seizues, hemmoraging, some blindness in one of her eyes, and delayed movement. The baby is making a recovery though! She is doing much better and wears an eye patch to help strengthen her weak eye. As a church member, I feel for the family. I always check up on the baby and the family, and pray for them!

Hi, I have a foster son who is 15 months old and was 10 months when he was shaken by either mom or her boyfriend. My husband and I will probably adopt him. He has had to learn everything again. He has some eye damage, right hemisphere brian damage, he dose not walk or sit up. He is like a 6 month old. But he is the light of our life.

I know one mom on BabyFit.com. Jennipher is her name, and I think her screen name is mom2amiracle. Her husband hurt her son. They are now divorced, and he is in prison.
