Alex and Ian were stillborn. We miss them always and they have missed so much life they might have lived. They would have been about to finish primary school but instead we remember their death as well as their birthday.
As always on their birthday I share links I have seen About pregnancy loss. Each year there is more and more written. (Apologies for typos. I have computer troubles.)
