Christian's Story

Christian Bryan


On June 30, 2018, Christian Bryan Maynard entered this world, happy and healthy. We had prayed for a child for many years. Our dreams were coming true via adoption. On September 19, 2018, while Christian was at daycare, we received a phone call detailing every parent's worst nightmare. Christian did not wake up from his nap. Christian was not breathing. Our precious gift from God had departed to heaven. Baby Christian had passed away from SIDS-Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Christian gave us the best 81 days of our lives. After a few weeks in prayer, we felt God nudging us to share Christian's story in hopes that it educates parents, families, and caregivers about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.  We miss our baby boy so much, but the formation of this foundation has been healing for our family. We hope The Christian Bryan Foundation's work saves another family from having to experience the heartache of losing their baby. 

In Loving Memory of Christian Bryan
