There are times in your life when experiences change your life forever. Then there are times in your life when other’s expierences touch into your soul. I was immediately touched when I first heard about Mitchell. He was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and ended up dying of acute heart failure in his home with his family surrounding him. Their situation hit close to home. Almost too close to home. With our son Cole, we also held him in our arms and waited for his life to end.
Mitchell’s family and friends put together a Facebook page, Mitchell’s Journey, where they shared Mitchell’s daily decline and their personal expierinces with him. It has such raw and honest emotions and immediately gained support from around the world. As I read their post daily I find myself dripping in tears. I can feel their love for their little boy and know of the heartache they were going through. However with all the pain, there is a light that makes me strive to be a better mom. To listen and be more patient. To leave the dishes and go play cars. To stop cooking dinner and wrap my arms around my husband when he comes home. Life is so precious. And it is experiences that we are able to have either through ourselves or others, that help us see the love in the world.
Burying a child is something that no parent should ever have to do. The whole process is horrible. One of my friends is from a third world country and he was telling me about the village where he grew up. There it wasn’t unusual for a mother to bury at least one child in her lifetime. Most of these women couldn’t afford any type of coffin and would have to wrap their child in a cloth and bury them in the dirt. It is my mission to spare the pain for atleast one mother or father from burying their child. To give one child the chance at life and a future full of hope and dreams.

At Sugar Doodle Kids we love the holiday tradition of getting new pajamas on Christmas Eve. So we decided to spread the joy and went to a local shelter to give out some pajamas to celebrate our Christmas Eve tradition with them. What a great honor and joy it is to be able to give back and see the smiles on these children’s faces as they opened their new pair of Sugar Doodle Kids pajamas. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity today to share this tradition with these kids, and we hope that we can continue to do this in the years to come.

We believe that feeding the hungry when you have the resources to do so is the most obvious of all human obligations, and especially children. Hunger is the number one health risk. It kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Good nutrition in the first several years of a child is critical and is especially important to establish a good foundation for a child’s mental, physical, academic advancement and economic outlook. Children face the greatest challenges due to hunger and are therefore at the highest risk of facing extreme short-term and long-term consequences. Hunger will weaken the immune system and increases the risk of infection and disease. These effects have a much greater impact on a child and a hungry child can begin to suffer from chronic hunger, moderate malnutrition, and severe malnutrition. These children that develop malnutrition can cause diseases that become deadly.
- Every 6 seconds a child dies because of hunger and related causes. (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), 2004)
- 16.1 million children in America live in poverty.
- 200 million children go to bed hungry.
- More than 9 million children under age 5 die every year. Malnutrition accounts for more than one-third of these deaths.
- More than 6 million children die of malnutrition each year.
- Nearly 15 percent of babies in developing countries are born with a low birth weight compared with only 7 percent of babies in industrialized countries.
- About 5.6 million deaths of children worldwide are related to under-nutrition. This accounts for 53 percent of the total deaths for children under 5.
Every child is important and should have the opportunity to have the ability to a meal. We have a lot of work to do in order to solve these issues and we hope that you will join us in this cause because every child should Dream In Comfort.
