Dear Mummy,

This shot was just days before we had to say goodbye. Daddy couldn’t wait to show you but sadly he never got the chance.

It’s been nearly six months now but I want you to know that I talk about you every day, I love you and I still don’t eat bananas or any other fruits.¬†Yacky ‘nanas make great phones though and if I could call one person for a chat it would be you.

Love you forever, Mummy.

Your little Bo x

    I think this post has made me cry more than any other – Jackson is adorable and you are doing an amazing job of giving him a normal life, which is exactly what he needs. You’re an inspiration…my husband lost his dad as a child, and unfortunately didn’t have someone like you around, so I can see what happens when there’s not a ‘BEN’ on the scene. Much love to you both, and to the rest of your family,x

    I agree with the lady above. I read your posts and they always touch me, but this one really made me cry. It’s the emptiness of something not yet finished, all the plans not yet done, the incompletion of it all. There are no words…. I’m sorry for you and your baby’s loss doesn’t even touch it, but I truly am x
