Alfie Sam Crowley was born on 3rd March 2003.
He never got to open his eyes or breathe his first breath
but this website is built to show how proud we are that he made it
that far. Still our beautiful baby boy.
Alfie died of a massive placental abruption the day before he was
actually born. I find that a strange thing to deal
with as everyone else classes him as dying on the day that was was
born and this is not the case.
is the reason I chose Born Sleeping as the name for his
website, it states what actually happened and leaves me with a
nicer image of how my son was born, an image of a peaceful passing.
You are very welcome here, please take your time and browse around
all of the pages on this site.
You will find here the story of how we lost our little boy and how
we have over time learned to deal with our loss.
You will find different perspectives from different members of the
family, things that remind us of Alfie , photos of our time with him
and offers of help and support to those of you out there who might
be going through the same experiences. Please feel free to contact
me at any time, I would be happy to hear from you.
Thanks for visiting us, please drop in again.
