Heartbreak. Joy. Death. Life. But most of all Love.

A Popular Girl

Anabelle has been a very popular girl this week! She has not only featured in one, but two blogs; honouring her memory and telling her story, and by doing so raising awareness for all angel babies and their parents. 

This evening, my friend Ally (and author of http://cancerandbabyequalschaos.blogspot.com) started her month of the A-Z April blogging challenge by writing about Anabelle for her letter A. Such a beautiful touching post that bought a lump to my throat and tears to my eyes, just so thoughtfully written. I'm overwhelmed when other people go out of their way to remember us and Anabelle. Dedicating the start of this challenge to my daughter is one of those small things that go a long long way and mean so much to myself and Jon. 

Our other blog feature was written by a lady called Kate, who is another member of British Mummy Blogger (and author of http://gigglingatitall.blogspot.com). A couple of months ago Kate asked me if I would mind being featured in her "Inspirational Mums" series in the run up to Mother's Day. This week Our Story was posted.   I'm not sure inspirational is how I would describe myself, I certainly didn't ask to be an inspiration; certainly not for these circumstances.  But I'm honoured that a stranger was touched enough by Anabelle's story to include us in her Mother's Day series and to recognise me as a mother by doing so.

I found your blog through the second of the above links and I would definately say that I admire you so much as a mother and a woman for the amazing way you are sharing your story. Huge hugs to you xx
