SBS: Shaken Baby Syndrome

Psalm 127:3-5 NIV
Children are a heritage from the Lord,
    offspring a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
    are children born in one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
    whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
    when they contend with their opponents in court.

SBS: Shaken Baby Syndrome

Have you heard of this? I really have not heard of this before. I do remember my mom warning me to be very careful with my babies heads and to make sure I didn't do any quick and jerky motions or I could hurt them. I really didn't know there was a syndrome, one that is very deadly to babies and that this sort of thing happens ALL of the time.

Please meet Cheyenne Ray. Isn't she adorable?! 

Cheyenne is a victim of SBS. She was left in her father's care for less than 1 hour when he lost his temper and shook her because she wouldn't stop crying. This happened in August and today, by the grace of God, Cheyenne is alive and thriving. She has suffered for this as the shaking fractured part of her skull and she had a massive bleed in her brain which is causing developmental issues and issues with her eyes. The doctors said if she survived she would be a vegetable but her mother, Amy, would not even here this and took this to God and asked Him to heal Cheyenne. Our mighty, awesome God heard and answered this prayer.

Cheyenne is a fighter and has an amazing mom who is fighting for her daughter. Please pray for Cheyenne as she has a long recovery road ahead of her. She will be having surgery on Monday as there is still bleeding behind her eyes and part of her skull needs to be put back into place.

You can follow her story on Facebook which is kept up to date regularly or on her blog page Prayers For Cheyenne

We need to spread the awareness of SBS. I had no idea that this happened and the fact that it happens often is unbelievable. Just about one month after finding out about Cheyenne, her mom Amy posted about another baby who was shaken by her mom but the outcome was not good at all. The baby died and the mom was imprisoned and charged. This is pretty serious stuff and I think people just don't realize how much serious and irreversible damage can be done.

Cheyenne is very blessed. Please pray that she will recover 100% and this up coming surgery is smooth. Pray that people become aware and will walk out of the room and cool down before shaking their child.

Malachi 4:2 NIV
But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves.



  1. Hi C.O.G.,

    Unfortunately I am all too aware of this. My neice (who was my best friend, before becoming my neice), has a nephew who did this to his little baby boy 3 years ago. The baby did not survive.
    What may not be obvious to people, are the long term effects suffered by all the members of the families...not only did they lose a precious family member, but they were witness to an unthinkable act perpetrated by another beloved family member. The father of the baby is in prison (rightfully so), but the great grandparents of the baby
    (the father's grandparents, and my friend's mother and father in law) have suffered mental anguish ever since. Also, the family has the stigma associated to them since it is a small town where this occured. This family was always in good standing with the community before this. My own little neices had to deal with the stigma as the list of innocent victims go on and on.
    This crime is a manifestation of the influence of evil (sin) within a person's heart. Only faith in Jesus Christ can prevent this kind of sin from overtaking a human being...Without Jesus every human being has the capacity to do evil, unthinkable things...even if only in their hearts and minds. Praise God, someday this kind of thing will never be done again, but while here on this earth, we will see more and more of this evil continue. :(
    Praying for little Cheyenne, for her total healing, as well as for the family who love her :)

    1. Hi Lisa,
      Oh that is so sad!
      The stigma left of the family would be terrible. You are right, I didn't eve think about the long term effects on the family members. The after thoughts must be something fierce.

      Thanks for your prayers. They still don't know how much damage was done and will not know how she will develop as time goes on. The good thing is her mom loves Jesus and so she prays and the CT scans so far look really favourable.

      Thanks for sharing,

  2. Hi Child of God,
    Thank you for sharing. I will be praying. I had heard of this, but did not know what it was called. This is so sad. In just one foolish moment many lives could be changed. Where I live every year there are a number of little ones who drowned in the family swimming pool. In many cases, the parents took their eyes off their child for just a moment, and that is all it takes. That is why it is so important to have the pools fenced in.
    God bless,

    1. Hi Ken,
      Yes, one foolish moment and will can be changed forever. God gives us commandments for our own safety. He instills caution into us in order for us to avoid disaster.
      This is sad about the drowning children. I have a friend who lost her 2 year old to drowning in the pool. It was just like you said, she took her eyes off of him for only a moment and the next moment he was in the pool and dead.

      Thanks Ken, for praying and sharing.

  3. Dear one thank you for sharing on this syndrome. It is very sad when an innocent child is taken advantage by anger especially. Hugs.

    1. Hi JBR,
      It is so sad indeed! Children cannot defend themselves and babies are at the mercy of the people caring for them.

      Blessings hon,

  4. This beautiful little child was put into her father's care and came to harm. We come together in Jesus name and put Cheyenne Ray into OUR FATHER'S care for healing according to the scripture where two agree as touching anything on earth it will be done for us by OUR FATHER in Heaven. amen, we give You thanks Lord that Your word has the ability to bring into existance that which does not yet exist, Cheyennes one hundred percent healing.

    1. Hi Brenda,
      Yes Lord, I stand in agreement with Brenda and put Cheyenne Ray into Your hands Father and trust You will heal her. Thank you Daddy You are wonderful. In the name of Jesus Christ, the Lamb who was slain for our sins, amen.


    2. Praying in agreement~In Jesus'Holy name~ Amen

  5. This is so sad. Thank you for brining more awareness to SBS. I will be praying for Cheyenne!

    1. Hi Barbie,
