I am sitting in a little café in Annandale. It is rare that I hop over the other side of the city. I am meeting some special women today for tea. One of them is my dear social worker Deb and the other is an author Annie M. I decided to come a little earlier so I can do some writing. Annie wrote the book ‘You Could Have Been‘ dedicated to her son Xavier. We read the book around the campfire for Mia’s first birthday and there wasn’t a dry eye in sight. The book is a labour of love and it is such a beautiful tribute to Xavier that we can read to our children we have lost. It makes me cry every time I read the words. I know what Hamish has become. For someone that lived a short life he has left a big footprint on the world and will continue to. He has lived through Greg and I each day since his passing. He has touched many peoples lives with his love. The love he has pours through me each day. I am sure of it. I had the strength to share our story because Hamish wanted it told. His spirit has been with us each step of the way on this journey. That is one of the only things that gives me comfort. I hold on to the fact that no matter where I am, where I travel he will always be there by our side.
I love you my baby. I am so glad you are always with me wherever I go.
