Losing a child suddenly and with no explanation is a parent's worst nightmare. The Centers for Disease Control says about 4,000 infants die suddenly of no immediate cause and about half are attributed to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
October is SIDS Awareness month and one Salisbury mother shared her story with WBTV about her baby girl, Emily Mae.
Looking at pictures of Emily Mae makes you smile.
"She would eat it for the first time. Her face would just light up. It was the most wonderful thing," said Lisa Martin.
Milestones like eating solid foods were well documented.
"Too bad we didn't have cell phones back then to record cause I probably would have had a whole cell phone full," said Martin.
Lisa Martin is Emily Mae's mom. All she has left of her daughter are memories, fingerprints and pictures.
"She passed July 17, 2001. I have a picture of her the 15th of her standing up on the table," said Martin, "She was cutting teeth and she was a perfectly healthy baby."
Emily Mae would be 13 now and her mom says she still has nightmares about the night she died.
"Sometimes when you stir you, make a sigh or something and she just wasn't stirring," said Martin.
Emily Mae went to bed with her mom rubbing her back and never woke up.
"I tried to do CPR, and she was still warm," said Martin with tears in her eyes.
Emily Mae was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. Police investigated Lisa Martin's home. And the medical examiner came to the conclusion what happened in her baby's death.
"As much as I didn't want to do it, I read the whole entire autopsy report," said Martin, "Right on the front page, SIDS."
