wishing all our families a happy Christmas and all the best for 2019

🙂  Belated Christmas wishes to everyone -I still find it a difficult time.  Family is so important and there is little one can say - however our memories are so special and with us for ever!

Also I do hope 2019 is a great year for everyone!

moving on....

Just sharing some feelings.  Life changed me forever after the life and passing of our beautiful daughter Melissa.....maybe as I get older I understand more - not sure about that! But I know I see things differently from our experience, my values are different from a lot of our friends. Memories are still very clear and even sometimes a conversation can be difficult with someone who does not really know me. Living disability and with a fragile hold on life does change things and I feel I am still trying to understand that.

in memory of Brennagh

Today was a sad day as well as a celebration of a very special young girl. Aged 11 and Brennagh has blessed so many people by her short life, she has taught many about the true meaning of what is important in life.  I was honoured to attend her service and celebration of her life.... 

Our Trisomy children are here I am sure to teach and educate - they are so special and have a huge impact on those who have time to spend with them.  

A day full of special memories.

yes I know it has been a while since I have written anything.  I realise how important it is to share our experience of caring for our children in the hopes we can help other parents.  For us it was a scary journey and still today I am learning how much those 9 years of caring for Melissa has impacted on my life today.  I have no regrets but feel I am still learing about life.   There is some great sharing being done by families.
