Amelie

Next week my little princess Amelie Scarlet will turn 2. What a journey these last 2 years have been. We have experienced depths of sorrow that I didn’t know were possible to utter elation and incredible joy. As a tribute to the amazing little girl she has become and to the wonderful friends, family and health professionals who have helped us every step of the way I wanted to share her story!

Cruz

Cruz My dream as I was growing up was to be a mum, and in 2004 that dream came true…  I found out I was pregnant and I couldn’t wait to meet my little baby. My pregnancy was strange all the way through I thought, when I raised my concerns to my OB he told me I was probably panicking over nothing and to try not to stress about it anymore. I was 33 weeks when after a routine ultrasound found the...

Chantelle & Kaiden

Marcus

Marcus First of all I’d like to introduce myself. I’m Nicole and my son is named Marcus. Marcus was born at 38 weeks, weighing 6pound 13ounces from an emergency ceaser as he was going into distress. When delivered he was not breathing, tachycardic, and after resuscitating they noticed he had an enlarged spleen and low platelet count. This was because of CMV. He was taken to the neo-natal ward and extensive tests were done. My son looked like a pin cushion....

William & Emmaline
