Leggins loss of sweet baby maxwell

Early in the morning on July 12 a parents worst nightmare happened in the Leggins house. Megan came in to check on Maxwell and found him unresponsive. Now trying to pick up the pieces of this tragic event they need our help,love and support. As a single income family the financial stress of counseling, and the time off of work to grieve the loss of her sweet smiley baby boy, will be an extra burden that they should not have to bare in this time of despair.
Please help support the Leggins Family through this emotional and life altering tragedy. Let us work together to take some financial stress off of the Leggins family so they are able to rightfully mourn the passing of their baby while lifting away the daily struggles of work and paying bills. Prayers are equally accepted and appreciated

The below painful message was written and posted on Facebook by Megan Leggings Mother of Maxwell:

After 35 minutes of sleep, I woke up praying that this has just been the most horrific nightmare. But this is real life and I woke up staring into an empty crib.
At 12:10am I found our sweet baby, Maxwell, unresponsive in his crib. The next several hours following have been the most dreadful, traumatizing moments my family hasever gone through. Bobby and I are now living every parents' worst nightmare: the death of our child.
I thought about shutting down. Shutting down my e ntire life. But after seeing the amount of support we had last night through our closest family and friends, I know this is how we are going to make it through. People always say the phrase "you're in my thoughts and prayers." Believe it or not, it is comforting. So please, keep us in your thoughts and prayers because right now, we need it. Pray that my baby is with our Lord and savior. Pray that my 3 living children will get through this. Pray for love and strength for my family. Pray that we will find peace.

Maxwell was a light in my life. I only got to be his mommy for 6 months, but my life will always be better for having the chance to know the sweetest baby God ever put on this earth.
