A Picture Worth 1,000 Words
If a photograph could speak this one would say, "I miss you. I miss you so much it physically hurts. I hold your blanket tightly clutched to my chest on the really bad days while it catches my tears. There are days I want to stay in bed forever but I get up and push through, for you. Your photos surround me and you are forever frozen in time. They are the only way I can see your beautiful face besides when I close my eyes or am lucky enough to dream about you."
This photo is one I do not want another mother to ever have to take. This photo shows a look in my eyes that I never want another mother to be able to recognize. This photo represents every single mom who has already lived this nightmare and aches for their son or daughter, to hold them just one more time...
This photo screams, "I never thought it would happen to me". This photo is breaking the silence and the stigma around SIDS. This photo is your neighbor, your friend, your sister, your daughter. It is the woman you stand behind in line at the super market. This is the woman you sit next to in church. It is the mom that has a soccer ball decal on the back of her mini van. This photo could be the greatest mother in the entire world. This photo shows the world this can happen to anyone. This photo could be you.
This photo is the reason Knox Blocks was created and exists. This photo represents the hopes and dreams of one day stopping the silent monster, SIDS, that took not only my baby but so many others. This photo is fueled by passion and love that will not stop until every baby is safe. This photo IS Knox Blocks.
