Petitioning Congress


Your Daddy was never much for getting involved in political things since his life was pretty calm and pleasant, but then again Daddy never had a cause to champion before. Two representatives from New Jersey are sponsoring The Stillbirth and SUID Prevention, Education, and Awareness Act (S 1862, HR 3418) in order to help get answers to why some infants die when no discernible cause can be found. So, today, your Dad started a petition to Congress in order to try to have as many people rally behind this legislation as possible. Heck, our own Senator, Barbara Mikulski, is a co-sponsor of this proposed legislation. Hopefully, with enough support, this can bill can be pushed through Congress and signed by the President in order to help, at the very least, give parents answers and some sort of closure when their infant dies...and maybe save many more families from ever having to receive such tragic news at all.

I love and miss always!
