It was time to share.

So I used to be very private about our boys, no identifiers or photos of their faces. It seemed important to me. I think because we didn’t get to keep Charlie in our arms, and there were so many times we wondered if we would go home from hospital empty handed. But now I feel differently. Because sharing this journey not only helps friends and family understand, but it helps other parents who travel a similar road to feel a little less alone. 
So we went even bigger and we shared our story with the media. As a way to get the word out about our fundraising efforts, but also as a way to tell other families that they can do it, they can live through it. You won’t be the same as you were before, but you’re still okay. In fact, you’re better than okay, you’re a parent.

I'm just another mum trying to figure all of this out, with the added bonus of getting to start extra early, and well and truly on the back foot!

One thought on “It was time to share.”

  1. Thank you for sharing and good luck with the fundraising. Our story is simular we lost one of our identical twins day 3 and spent 6 months in hospital with the other. Such a hard journey so many mixed emotions.You are doing something awesome by trying to give back to the unit, Will definitely be donating come payday lol all the best !
