THE STORY:

Losing our 3rd daughter, Rosie, was horrible. It still is horrible. We wake up every morning and think, that really a happened? We are just learning to live a joyful life around a huge missing part of us. We are so grateful we had her and got to know her, and we miss her like hell. We were so fortunate to have had her for almost 5 months! *please keep reading* There are people who never leave the hospital with their babies. Did you know there are ~24,000 stillbirths that happen each year in this country? That's 24,000 families that live with the pain of losing a child, each year. We have been blessed recently to meet a family that also had a child with Trisomy 18, the same as Rosie. He was with his family for just a couple of HOURS before he passed.... Here's where it gets even harder. Please keep reading. When families lose their children in the hospital, they usually have a limited amount of time to spend with them because their child's body need to be refrigerated to avoid decomposition. Horrible, horrible thought, I know. Now, think. This is the only time you will ever have with your child. How much time would you like? To process what just happened, have your family meet your child...these will be your only memories with your baby. Here's where you can help. I'd like to donate a Cuddle Cot to Howard County General Hospital, and specifically to Mary Peroutka of Rising Hope, a Perinatal Palliative Care Program. She was instrumental in helping us celebrate Rosie and guiding us to share her with all of you! A Cuddle Cot is a piece of medical equipment that acts like a refrigerated bassinet and allows babies to stay in the room with their parents for up to 36 hours so they do not need to be taken straight to the morgue. Below is a link to a family story that has used one before. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2744458/Meet-parents-using-refrigerated-cuddle-cots-buy-time-stillborn-babies.html

Thank you for all of your generosity! I hope to help other families get as much time as they need with their babies- it is crucial to the grieving process!
