    I lost my son before I

    even knew I was pregnant... The first I knew about him was when I woke up bleeding and in terrible pain. I think about him every day. I love you.

    I spoke with The forensic coroner yesterday.

    Said my sons case is closed. they are officially ruling it as SIDS. I don't know what to feel or how to process. In part I'm ok with knowing it wasn't something that could have been prevented. But on the other, why would such a health baby boy just die. It's hard to process.
