Thanks and My Warrior Wife

On Saturday  the 3rd May Siobhan and I slept in the hospital with our beautiful daughter in a cot by our side. We wanted a night where we could have an echo in our hearts of what it would have been like to have her in our home.

On Sunday we came home and on Monday posted our terrible news.

On Monday our house was full of friends and family, we talked, laughed, joked and cried together and our spirits were buoyed amidst the turmoil in our souls.

On Tuesday Morning we sat in bed and read over 300 of your comments. We were overwhelmed and humbled. We cannot express how much this outpouring of sympathy and love has lifted us and carried us forward, how much it has given us light in the dark journey we now find ourselves on, and continues to do so. I wish we could reply to you all.

My warrior wife is now trying to express milk that has nowhere to go in order to help the lives of premature and sick babies whose mothers are unable to provide them with sufficient breast milk of their own. If you know of anyone that you think would consider donating then please send them to this page http://www.ukamb.org/

Once again, I will say the words which cannot adequately express what you all have done for us - Thank You

One of my oldest friends is a mural friend. My heart broke to hear your news. Tonight I think of you both. There aren't words I can say to help. I just wanted you to know that you're in my thoughts.

Love to you all, pure and simple. And huge respect for how you're going about this experience - I've been there, and know some of your sorrow. Grace will always be with you, part of who you are, and I'm glad that you're honouring her and your experience this way, it's important. Love to you all. xxxx
