Jayden Renee Caruthers was born still at 3:00 pm on October 9, 2003. She weighed 4 pounds and 12 ounces. Her skin was so soft, and her face was more beautiful than my husband and I could have imagined. We never got to welcome our daughter into the world because the moment we met her we had to begin saying goodbye. Jayden died of a filamentous cord insertion.
Jan is one of the five original founding moms of Healthy Birth Day, the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that created the Count the Kicks campaign.
