A Light In the Darkness

A Light In the Darkness Episode18 - Heidi Hamilton

October 14, 2020

Heidi was raised by wonderful parents, Dan & Patricia Potts in West Jordan, UT. She has 3 sisters, and they adopted her brother when she was about 15. Heidi went to Snow College after high school and met her husband, Jason Hamilton, who had just returned from his mission. They got married in the Salt Lake City Temple in May of 2000.  Heidi graduated from the University of Utah in 2002 with a degree in communications and business. She worked for the Forest Service for 8 years before she had my first baby, and then became a stay-at-home mom. Heidi and Jason now have 6 children. She enjoys being a mother and wife. She also enjoys reading, trail running, hiking, triathlons, family history, digital scrapbooking, and traveling.

In this episode Heidi Hamilton then tells us about her sweet son Link.  She talks about all of the tender mercies that came from his short life, and shares about him ultimately passing away suddenly due to Sudden Unexplained Infant Death, or SIDS. Heidi gives us some of the strategies she uses in her life as she has dealt with grief and heartache over losing her sweet baby boy, and trying to help her family heal from such a devastating loss.
