A Tree for Toby and All the Infants Who Have Died

A Tree for Toby and All the Infants Who Have Died

Today was a special day. Today, in the company of the nursing staff and members of the Labor & Delivery Department from Allegheny Health Networks Forbes Hospital, we planted a tree outside the entrance to the hospital, in memory of Toby and all the infants in our community who have died. On August 24, 2016, we stood inside the walls of the Emergency Department of Forbes Hospital feeling completely broken. Our perfect world as we knew it had been broken...

The Mission of The Little Fox – Toby’s Foundation: Working to End SIDS

The Mission of The Little Fox – Toby’s Foundation: Working to End SIDS

We had a vision for this brand video since we started the Foundation. Through Toby's impact over the past two years and partnering with Cristin Goss/GossBoss to create this piece, we could not have imagined how it would come together. Our mission is simple. Carry on Toby's legacy through education on Safe Sleep Practices and donations of Smart Sock monitors to families welcoming an infant so that one day every baby can be monitored and every parent can have peace...

Nursery of Hope

Nursery of Hope

Join the Nursery of Hope — a partnership between The Little Fox – Toby’s Foundation and Foundations across the nation — as we pay tribute to the precious little ones who have passed away prematurely of Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUIDS). We invite parents, families, and friends to plant a “Legacy Tree” during the month of October to honor babies gone too soon. According to the Centers of Disease Control (CDC), nearly 3,500 infants die each year for causes unknown....

The Path of Transition

The Path of Transition

I've spent the last week swimming in baby items. Most of which were Toby's. The switch over of the nursery has hit me in waves. I feel joy & love in my heart in places that have been so broken and painful for 25 months, it scares me. Then the pain begins and the tears fall while every sense is engaged by grief - my eyes see flashbacks to certain moments when Toby is right with me; I can smell...

To The Parents Preparing For School to Begin – A Note From A Grieving Family

To The Parents Preparing For School to Begin – A Note From A Grieving Family

Lucas will start Pre-K this fall. With his first school application, we had to write a letter about our family. I was absolutely not ready for this. I knew we'd have to do it one day and know this is only the start of these conversations with teachers, administration, coaches, and families that we will meet along the way. But the triggers it brought were another layer of grief we were not prepared for. The administration was very welcoming and...

PSA: Spend the Money. Buy the Owlet.

PSA: Spend the Money. Buy the Owlet.

Over the past week, I have been asked multiple times about the Owlet Baby Monitors. Are they worth it? Should I spend the money? I’m on the fence about this monitor, but… What is unspoken is the BUT in each of these instances. But, I don’t want to have to worry about my infant while they are sleeping. But, I don’t want to have to continually check if they are breathing. But, I don’t want to have additional anxiety overnight...

21 months & Lots of Prayers

21 months & Lots of Prayers

Guys! It’s official - The Little Fox | Toby’s Foundation is incorporated & approved! ???? In just two weeks time all of our paperwork was reviewed and approved. We were told to not expect anything for 6-8 weeks. As soon as I started to read the letter last night I thought “This is all Toby’s doing. He’s opening doors again!” He knows his momma and she can’t wait for anything, especially when there’s work to be done, families to help,...

Finding Our Footing in 2018

Finding Our Footing in 2018

As I sit in our home on the last day of 2017, my heart is fragile. This holiday season has been hard. The reality of Toby being gone, forever, was ever present over the past few weeks. Where many experienced cheer and love, we felt abandonment and sadness. It is hard to believe 2017 is nearly over. A full year without our son. No hugs or kisses. No first steps. No presents for Toby under the tree. As we stood...
