My miscarriage truth. A letter to my beautiful lost babies.

My beautiful baby B,

Four years after I lost you I will always wonder who you would have become. Would you have had green eyes or blue? Blonde hair or red? What would your giggle have sounded like?

You see when DeeDee was nine days old she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain stem tumour. It was unlike anything anyone had ever seen before and so no one could offer any kind of treatment, nor any kind of hope. Continue reading “Learning to be selfish, what drove me to blog! “
