Introduction To Me

I first started this Blog in 2010 when we discovered the baby we were expecting had a serious heart condition.  Preparing for a long stay in our regional children's hospital with her, away from our family and friends, my husband & I set up this Blog, under a different name, for the purpose of using it as a way to keep in touch with everyone, and post updates on how she was doing.

We didn't, in the end, ever need to use the blog...our beautiful little girl died the day before she might have been delivered, and was born sleeping (stillborn).

I've visited this page several times over the last 2 years, with the aim of deleting it entirely.  But for whatever reason, every time my fingers hover over the "delete" button I just can't bring myself to do it.  Where we don't have many tactile memories of our little girl, it feels wrong to purposefully erase something associated with her.

So I have removed all the original writing, and changed the purpose of this blog.  I am now going to use this it as a diary, to log & capture the chaotic, noisy, messy and fun existence that is our little family.  Nothing earth-shattering or profound, in fact probably not that interesting either!   This little creation of ours has sat gathering virtual dust for far too long already.  I guess, as they say, here goes nothing...

Thank you for reading.
