Hi all. I recently lost my five-year-old son in a freak accident. He slipped and fell while in the bathtub and drowned. It was less than 12 hours from the time he was hospitalized to the time we turned off his life support and said goodbye. He was my oldest son. He had special needs (high-functioning autism) and so I spent a lot of time with him or doing things related to him. He leaves behind a heartbroken Mama, Daddy and four-year-old brother. I am struggling with feelings of guilt, helplessness and a general punched-in-the-gut feeling. 


Sarah-Wife to Kelly, mostly organic crafty SAHMama to my angel, Canaan (11/01/07-03/15/2013) and Ezra (05-12-09).
