Remembering Alex and Ian 6

Today is the anniversary of the day our twin boys Alex and Ian were stillborn.  They would have been six.  I wish they were here with us.  I wish they were choosing a birthday cake.  I wish I could guess what sort of cake they would really love.  We remember them with sadness and fondness.

Each year on their birthday I share some of the useful resources around stillbirth.

Happy birthday Alex and Ian.

  5. I remember your post from last year very well. Sending all my love and will be thinking of you xox

  6. Sending my love. I'm a new reader who stumbled here on the food theme and didn't realise we had both lost babies. 30 October would have been Matilda's 4th birthday.

    Sending love as you remember your precious boys.
