October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. In an effort to bring awareness to SIDS and the life of grieving families, we have partnered with the Knox Blocks Foundation to give-a-way TWO Owlet Smart Sock Monitors.
We received 83 applications for our give-a-way. Dan and I reviewed each application individually and then went through them together. Each and every story was unique but we had to select two families to receive the Smart Socks in Toby’s memory. After connecting with both families, who were elated to be chosen, we are happy to tell you a little about our winners.
Our first is the Nassal Family is from Butler, Pa and is getting ready to welcome their third baby in the coming weeks.
Ashley’s sister died from SIDS when she was very young and describes her family as “never the same.” She and her husband relate to having those worries for their own children and expressed how having an Owlet would help to curb some of those fears.
Congratulations, Ashley and Zac, and best wishes for a healthy and safe delivery as your family grows over the next few weeks.
The Allen Family is our second recipient of the Owlet Smart Sock, which was generously donated to our give-a-way by a local Pittsburgh Family.
The Allen’s lost their baby girl, Lyndi, in January due to the chromosomal disorder, Trisomy 13. During their pregnancy with Lyndi they had another family member lose their baby boy to SIDS.
Rachel and Brandon Allen, from Tennessee, are currently expecting and preparing to welcome a new baby in December. They, along with their three other children, are excited for the new arrival, but as grieving parents, the pregnancy brings fears and hesitation.
“I am terrified of losing another one of my children. We have wanted to get an Owlet smart sock to ease our mind once the baby comes, but the budget is tight with 3 other children and a baby on the way.”
The Little Fox is happy to be able to provide the Allen Family with an Owlet Smart Sock so they can have peace of mind when they welcome their new baby in December.
Congratulations, Rachel & Brandon, and best wishes for a healthy and safe delivery over the next few weeks.
Thank you to everyone that submitted an application for the Owlet give-a-way. We thank you for your interest in The Little Fox and for following Toby’s story and supporting our efforts to keep his memory alive.
The Little Fox wishes to thank Knox Blocks Foundation, the local Pittsburgh family who donated the second Smart Sock, and Owlet for creating a piece of technology that helps parents feel a little more protected when they bring home a new baby.
