We went into our 20 weeks scan and found out that our unborn baby boy had a condition called Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.

You were so Loved

Slide 16:

The world may never notice If a snowdrop doesn’t bloom, Or even pause to wonder If the petals fall too soon. But every life that ever forms, Or ever comes to be, Touches the world in some small way For all eternity. The little one we long for Was swiftly here and gone. But the love that was then planted Is a light that still shines on. And though our arms are empty, Our hearts know what to do. Every Beating of our hearts Says that we do love you. Author Unknown.

Slide 17:

We love you so very much, and every day that goes by you are thought about and you are missed. I love you, my angel.
