Jersey Mai's Story   — kerry bryan, AL, USA

My baby girl Jersey Mai was born on the 28th of May 2003. We were the happiest parents in the world to have our baby daughter. I noticed she wasn't breathing right (grunting), and not feeding right. Still I took my baby home but still couldn't get this feeling that something wasn't right out of my head--a mothers instinct. I took her to the doctors and the hospital who all told me she was okay, but I knew she wasn't. Six weeks after she died in my arms while we were asleep, it felt like my world had fallen apart. Why, why, my precious baby? I felt robbed and was in bits. I found out later i was a strep B carrier, and she died from septicemia. I'll never ever forget the six weeks we shared and the love I felt for my little girl. I have now gone on to have a little boy and I have an older boy which is 9. We talk about Jersey Mai all the time as she was a big part of our lives. I'll never get over the loss we suffered, but we learn to live with it and take each day as it comes. kerryxx
