Happy New Year!

As the new year comes quickly upon us, I found this article that I wanted to share. SIDS effects 2,500 babies a year. Let's all try to reduce this number to zero. There are researchers out there working to find the cause so that other families do not have to go through the same tragedy that we did.

As the holidays are come and go there are so many things that I am thankful for. I have a wonderful family, caring friends and a great church family at Community of Faith. I miss my baby girl every day. But I know that she is in good hands in Heaven. God has shown me that life can go on and that we can find JOY in the little things each day. As we celebrate this New Year's Eve, I found this article that it felt should be shared. Be careful and be safe.

Happy New Year. The Connell family is looking for a blessed 2010 and are working to continue to build the MBJ Foundation for SIDS to help make a difference in the lives of families.

Christmas Challenge

Christmas is a time of celebration. The birth of our savior so long ago. I wonder if Mary put the baby Jesus to sleep on his back. What an amazing tale of a mother's love. I lean on Jesus for strength and security in times of trouble and joy.

I can't help but think about our little Jordan and wonder what she would be doing. How much she would have grown and what she would be like? We have created this foundation to help give Jordan a voice to be able to help save other babies. Randy and I are looking forward to 2011 to be a year that will see the MBJ Foundation for SIDS to grow and make an impact in the community.

I will be posting articles about SIDS and preventive tips throughout the year on this blog site as well. Getting the word out and spreading information to as many people as possible is an important part of the MBJ Foundation for SIDS.
