A while back I shared the struggle I was having with myself. My mental health was taking a right beating and I was finding it hard getting it back to a healthy balance. It took a while and a complete breakdown for me to realise that I wasn't failing. I have spent days, weeks, months… Continue reading Positive Failure

In exactly 77 days Jason would have been 4 years old and I have lived 1386 days without him. This seems bizarre as the day he was born I wasn't sure I was ever going to be able to live without him. I had spent 35 weeks awaiting his arrival, getting to know his little… Continue reading Crowdfunding
I am so incredibly honoured to share a post written by a wonderful Mummy to her two children. Lauren is one of the Mummy's I found over on IG who unfortunately is part of our baby loss community.

October is Elsie's month and to start off her celebrations here is her story ❤

28th April 2015 Our final goodbyes. I don't know how we got to that day, the month after Jason's birthday seemed like a whirlwind and not for the reasons we wanted it to be. Looking back I realise that we didn't know how to plan Jason's funeral and there was no-one to really offer any… Continue reading Saying Goodbye.

The first time we saw you. I'm the first to tell people I hate FaceBook. I created a new private account just so I could keep up with groups/pages I liked without being hit by unwanted posts or conversations with people. I have since reactivated my old fb account to plan Ellies 1st birthday and… Continue reading 7th October…
