One Month without Ava Grace

Ava Grace was born into our arms one month ago on the 16th March at 11:58am. She was perfect in every way. She has changed me, she has changed our family. 

I have always loved the saying "There is no footprint to small for this world" and that is certainly true in Ava's case. 
We love her and miss her and can't wait to see her again!

I have thought long and hard over the past month about if and what photos I should post of Ava as her photos are sacred to us. However, I also want Ava's story to be life affirming to others. She was here, her life may not have been recognised by the government as she was born under the "magic" 20 weeks gestation but she matters so much to us. 

Every life counts, no matter how small or how long they were here for.

  1. I've been reading your posts. I'm so sorry for the loss of your precious ~Ava Grace~.A very moving tribute to Ava.

    My daughter ~ Charlotte ~ was born still over 10 yrs ago. I too received a Teddy to carry as I walked out the door broken hearted with empty arms.

    Later, I helped coordinate and deliver the bears to NH.It's a wonderful program,

    I have never really shared many photos of Charlotte x
    My rainbow babies now 8 (born after Charlotte) were born there.

    1. Trish, Thankyou for your comment on my blog. I have just visited your blog and read about your Charlottes story. Too many babies die, it is just so sad. Can I ask how you found my blog?


Hi, I would love to hear from you and hear about your story! Leave me a message :)
