A letter to Martha Grace || April 2017

To my Amazing Baby Girl,

I've waited until today to write you this letter on purpose. There is a significance to today's date.

This time 4 years ago, both your Dad and I were sat in our living room in Beaumaris crying our hearts out. Proper ugly crying, huge tears, and loud sobs.

It was the day we went to meet with the Pediatric Cardiologist from Alder Hey at Liverpool Women's Hospital. 

Up to then, 24th April 2013 was the worst day of my life (a few other's have taken its place since then)

Siblings || April 2017


I don't know about everyone else but I am totally ready for summer. The weather has changed daily recently and any nice weather we've had has got me so excited for the summer months ahead. 

One of the main perks of living on Anglesey is that we're less than 20 minutes away from the beautiful Newborough beach. Now that I'm working 5 days out of 7, I don't like to waste an opportunity to take the kids out. As soon as the kids came home from school last Tuesday we packed out flask with tea and biscuits and headed to the beach for a walk (read: Mammi wanted to make sure she got her Siblings photo done so she dragged everyone out and bribed them with tea and biscuits)

Easter 2017


I've felt really anxious and unsettled this week. It took me a while to figure out a possible reason why, but I think it's down to the fact that we're almost at an important anniversary.

16th April will mark 4 years since my husband and I innocently walked into our local Hospital to see our unborn baby at our 20-week scan, to find out if we were having a boy or a girl and to confirm that everything was well and my pregnancy was progressing as it should.

16th April was the day our lives changed forever.

I still define our lives as before and after this date. We are totally different people now. I can't tell you what we worried about before we found out about Martha's Heart condition but they would probably seem trivial now.
