Sorry for the delay everyone, back to it this week so not much time for anything else.
Friday was a spectacular night and I'd like to Thank everyone again for coming, I was so very impressed with Magna and their staff and it certainly had an impact walking into our bond themed room.
So we've had a count ...
Including all donations and pledges on the night, money made through your donations to the raffle and casino our total is ...
A phenomenal amount and yes whilst it's £2000 shy of our total I know we can make that up very soon. I'm so very pleased and grateful.
So we are currently sitting at £98,000 it's just mind blowing that we managed to achieve this in 17 months and when I say we, I include you in that. Thank You everyone for thinking of us this year and making it your mission to help us get there.
The money we are raising is so important to help families in our position losing a child over 1. I can tell you more about what we have planned in March and more about the research project as that gets under way.
Our Thanks to

It's a break that won't heal, the one you live with on the inside that no one can see.
The tears come when you least expect it and at inappropriate times.
Jealousy and Rage and questions that cannot be answered.
We celebrate a life short lived but I wish with all my broken heart it was different.
Creating a legacy when I want you to create your own but I know you can't.
Flowers and Candles when it should be Football and Computer Games
I wish today was a non day, a day to forget, instead it's a day we will never forget.
The love is still a strong as ever and the sadness ever present.
We all miss you little man forever a cheeky wobbly toddler

Go ahead and mention my child.
The one that died, you know.
Don't worry about hurting me further.
The depth of my pain doesn't show.
Don't worry about making me cry.
I'm already crying inside.
Help me to heal by releasing
The tears that I try to hide.
I'm hurt when you just keep silent,
Pretending he didn't exist.
I'd rather you mention my child,
Knowing that he has been missed.
You asked me how I was doing.
I say "pretty good" or "fine".
But healing is something ongoing.
I feel it will take a lifetime.
