Our mission at Aspyn Arrows Inc (Aspyn Arrows) is simple, We aim to Share our story, educate families on safe sleep practices, and empower families to sleep with peace of mind by providing them with the Owlet Dream Sock.
After battling with infertility for over four years, we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Aspyn Jane. One month from the day she was born, I went to nurse her and found her unresponsive. Aspyn unexpectedly passed away from sudden infant death syndrome that night. Our lives were turned upside down and to say we were brokenhearted would be a massive understatement. It is our goal to allow this tragedy to fuel us to help others and, in the process, share what God has done in our lives. We have been blessed with three other children, Phoenix, Memphis, and Waverly.
Safe sleep practices today include eliminating hazards, such as keeping blankets, pillows, bumper pads, and soft toys out of the sleep area. Recommendations also include room sharing but not bed sharing. It is also recommended to have your baby sleep on a firm sleep surface in a safety-approved crib. These practices can help lower the risk of sleep-related infant deaths, including sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), accidental suffocation, and deaths from unknown causes.
We want to empower parents by helping them have peace of mind while they sleep. The Owlet Dream Sock gave us peace of mind when we gave birth to our son exactly three days shy of what would have been our daughter Aspyns' one year birthday. We were thrilled to be blessed again to be parents but terrified to sleep. Thankfully we used this monitor and with its support and our faith in God we all survived that first year of Phoenix's life. We knew it was our calling to help families who couldn't afford this luxury an opportunity to feel God love through this gift.
This monitor is a small device that tracks the pulse rate and oxygen levels of your child while they wear it via a sock on their foot. While, the Owlet Dream Sock doesn't prevent SIDS or make any medical claims as such, It does provide peace of mind and certainly gave us help in our time of need. Our hope is that this device will do the same for other families.
While we love this device and support it's functionality to provide peace of mind for families, Aspyn Arrows is not in alignment with the same values of the Owlet organization. What they promote and share on their website doesn't reflect our perspective and should be viewed as such.
Your support and contributions will help us meet the needs of our local community.

Life can be so unpredictable. The one thing that we can always count on is the promise that God is with us, Emmanuel. When our little girl, Aspyn, suddenly and unexpectedly went to be with Jesus, we were beyond lost. It truly felt like our entire lives had been ripped away from us.
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed." -Psalm 34:18
We know that in this world we will face trials, and our hope is that we can use the pain that we have experienced and give it purpose by sharing our story and showing others that, while this platform isn't one we would have chosen, God has brought beauty from these ashes. And we are grateful to give glory to Him every step of the way.
