Goodnight Riley Book Illustration

In answer to SIDS, Goodnight Riley offers parents comfort and hope.

Goodnight Riley is the book in which my friend Lori Johnson has revisited her journal and memories of the nightmare she and Brian shared. She says it this way, “When I started journaling after Riley died almost 25 years ago….I never thought the journal entries would end up in a book. Now that the book is finished I have had many people ask me if I was excited. I would answer no. I was relieved! I felt like a huge weight was taken off of me. I knew I needed to do the book. I thought if I could help one person, it was worth it. As the years passed by it became more and more urgent to do the book. I would talk to a mom who had just lost a baby and I wanted so badly to have my journals to give to her. I would wake up thinking about writing the book. I was so afraid to go back to the day I found Riley in his crib and to be vulnerable and open up the worst time in my life…….. In my husbands life.”
