  • On February 2, 2009, we miscarried our first baby, Abigail Grace Prince. There is not a day that goes by that we do not think of her and miss her with our whole hearts. There will always be someone missing from our family. As we continue to live in our “new normal” since her death, we have felt called to be advocates and a voice for those suffering the grief of pregnancy and infant loss. For the second year in a row, we will be participating in the Cribs for Kids Breath of Life Stroll. Cribs for Kids provides resources and education on how to prevent infant sleep death. They also run local support groups for those who have suffered miscarriages and stillbirths. Their mission is so amazing, and we ask that you make a donation to them through our team. Just $50 provides a safe sleeping space for a family in need. As we walk to honor our first daughter, we hope to raise awareness and erase the stigma associated with infant loss and miscarriage. We are one in four, and we hope that our participation helps break the silence while raising money for an awesome cause. Thank you and God bless!

  • In memory of Letisha Anne Ufolla
    November 20, 1988 – December 20, 1988

    My daughter, Letisha, was only a month old when she passed away. She was a beautiful, healthy, happy baby. When she died, I lost a part of me I would never get back. I buried the loss for years, then I worked with Cribs for Kids. They were so supportive and made me realize I should be grieving and remembering Letisha.

    So in honor of Letisha, we started our team to help other families. The money raised helps parents learn about safe sleeping and will provide a safe place to sleep. They also work closely with the medical community.

    We are so fortunate to have a great organization to help support us in remembering our loved ones. We appreciate your help in raising money for this wonderful organization!

    If you would like to help us remember Letisha, please donate to Cribs for Kids! Please share this page with friends and family.

    Thank you for always supporting our team,

  • Magee Mother Baby Unit team is made of some of the wonderful staff from 3700/3800 at Magee-Women’s Hospital.

    Nearly 11,000 babies are born each year at Magee. This accounts for nearly 45% of all births in Allegheny County.

    We provide education for safe sleep practices to all families.

    We hope to continue to raise awareness for this great organization.

    We are grateful for all of the support we receive. While saying that, we would love for you to join our team and walk beside us to support such a great cause while honoring Preston! The support of our friends and family while honoring Preston means a great deal to us.

  • In Memory of Rachel Lynn

    Rachel Lynn Romasco was born on July 3, 1986. We called her our little firecracker; she was a very healthy, loveable baby, who was loved by many. On August 7, she passed away from SIDS. During our time of mourning, Chuck and Jan Puskar, the founders of the organization, helped us through the grieving process.

    Looking back, S.I.D.S. of PA helped us greatly in our time of need. Therefore, we walk in Rachel’s memory, both to help support Cribs for Kids and to support others who have mourned such a devastating loss.

    Below are two poems written by Rachel’s family: Aunt Judy and cousin Deb.

    Rachel Lynn Romasco

    Such a dear little bundle
    Sent from heaven above
    It made us so humble
    And we surrounded her with love.

    She captured our hearts
    Right from the start
    So soft, sweet and precious
    She will always be with us.

    Sweet Baby Rachel

    Little Rachel Lynn
    Has surely been
    To all who loved her
    A blessing within

    Your very essence
    Is always in our presence
    Dear Little Rachel
    We know you’re happy in the heavens

    Oh, Baby Rachel
    You are terribly missed
    You’re in our hearts forever
    We loved you little darling

    Little Rachel Lynn
    Has surely been
    To all who loved her
    A blessing within

  • Please help us to raise awareness for this cause in honor of Bryson, and help save babies lives!

    Bryson Joseph Belletti was born on September 5, 2014, at 5:09 pm. He weighed 8lbs 3oz and was 21 inches long. 

    He was a thriving, healthy, chubby little baby boy. He loved snuggling, smiling, and playing with his big sister, Leila. 

    He was truly the happiest baby in the world. He was perfect, and we thought we were the luckiest people on earth. 

    On November 14, 2014, that perfect world that we knew all came crumbling down in pieces. Bryson stopped breathing while napping on the couch at the babysitter’s house. 

    We have since learned that Bryson died from Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID).

    Every year, 4,000 babies die due to this unknown cause. 

    While we may never have answers as to what exactly happened to our sweet baby boy that day, we want to honor his memory by helping educate others about SUID/SIDS and safe sleep practices. 

    Please join us this year as we walk with Cribs for Kids in the Annual Breath of Life Stroll. 

    You are welcome to come walk with us, or simply make a donation in memory of Bryson. Donations of any size are appreciated. 

    Please help us raise awareness for this cause and help save babies lives!

     

    Thank you!

    Kacie, Joe, Leila, and Matthew

  • In Loving Memory of Cassandra Suzanne Holmes
    11/11/12 – 1/26/13

    Our daughter, Cassie, died suddenly and unexpectedly when she was just 2 months old.  She was beautiful and perfectly healthy yet her life was abruptly cut short.  

    The Healing Hearts bereavement services provided by Cribs for Kids was instrumental in the beginning stages of our grief journey.  Cribs for Kids provides safe sleep materials to families in need and safe sleep education to caregivers and the medical community all with the goal of helping every baby sleep safer.

    As part of our journey in honoring Cassie’s life, we aspire to help in saving other babies and families from the tragedy of SIDS.  We appreciate your help in raising funds for Cribs for Kids through the Breath of Life Stroll to support the organization in continuing their work.  

    We are fortunate to have an awesome support network.  Together we will raise more money for Cribs for Kids than we ever could alone!  The donation process is fast, easy and secure. Thanks so much for your support… and please don’t forget to send this page to any friends you think might be interested in donating!
