I had a friends 50th birthday tonight. I had a good time celebrating and keeping warm. I think I might of eaten half my body weight in cheese. At the party I connected with an amazing mother who inspires me so much. She also has a baby that was born a week after Hamish. This precious little guy was given into her care for her to foster. It wasn’t planned but due to family circumstances she became mother to this special boy not long after he was born. She has children that are now heading into their teens and wasn’t expecting this. So there I was speaking with someone who became a mother unexpectedly the same week I became one too and lost my little guy. There were tears as I looked at her and told her my story. I was in awe of her courage and love that she gave her little one. You never know what could happen and how your life can be turned upside down in an instant. It is how you cope with that change or event that defines you.
Hamish I love you so much
