I’m sharing this with you just seconds after having a conversation with a wonderful woman who works for Revelation TV.
I shared my testimony with her & it again highlighted just how wonderful God is 🙌🏾
I told her about my blog and she said it was important that I know that God didn’t take my baby. I know this as God isn’t capable of such EVIL!
The Devil comes to steal our joy but if we trust in the Lord, HE turns everything around that the devil meant for harm and makes it good.
Destiny is happy, I WILL see her again. She is with Jesus and in no pain. How can I not be happy about that?
Of course I miss her & yes, my tears still flow but not as much now because this world is full of evil that she will never have to experience.
Losing Destiny made me lose myself. I was in so much shock and lost faith in this cruel world. The only way I could survive and get through my grief was to turn to Christ. Jesus saved me 🙏🏾
So that’s what I mean, I HAD to lose my Destiny (my daughter) to find my destiny (Gods purpose for my life)
My path has never been clearer, this is what happens when you trust in Jesus. I’m finally seeing bit by bit who God created me to be.
I will continue to trust in the Lord 🙏🏾
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
Proverbs 3:5 KJV
We never got to experience a Christmas with Destiny as a physical family member in our home. However, she was tucked away safely in my tummy the Christmas of 2016.
We were so excited for her arrival the following April and had no idea what horrific events were about to unfold in just a matter of days!
A year on and the memories are still so fresh and just as clear.
Christmas 2017 was supposed to be such a happy time. Both mummy & daddy with our three bundles of joy. Instead we sat watching our two living children playing whilst all the time wandering what their interaction with their little sister would have been like.
It’s the wonders, the what ifs, the not knowing that does the damage. My mind is on constant overload.
It wasn’t the Christmas we had hoped for but it was surely one that we’ll never forget.
Our family forever broken, always one missing 💔
Hello everyone 👋🏾
What do you think? It’s taken us a while to share but this will be Destiny’s headstone. The picture does not do it justice but it’s going to be gorgeous!!!!!
Shiny black granite with shocking pink writing & decoration such as pink stones & vases.
Slight detail change – next to the little infant holding the teddy at the bottom, will now read SAFE IN THE ARMS OF JESUS.
We are so excited to get it laid down next year!
We are over half way with our target and we thank each and every person who has been kind enough to donate.
Nobody HAS to help us, nobody has to do anything but YOU HAVE & we are TRULY grateful.
We look forward to thanking you all in person…. (keep watch on this blog)
We originally set up a GoFundMe page but have been exhausted with topping up everyone’s donations due to the fees. Instead, we would love any further donations to go straight into the account below ran by myself & Destiny’s Dad.

Dancing 4 Destiny was a success!!!! The burgers and hot dogs were the first to sell out and the stall holders were selling and offering amazing products!
The raffle went down a treat and the children loved the ‘guess how many sweets in the jar’ game!
The talent was amazing! Mostly dancers but also an amazing gospel singing group.
It wasn’t the biggest turn out and to be honest, I feel that my own community of All saints could have supported the event much more but we are extremely grateful to ALL who supported the event in all ways possible.
We managed to raise a whopping £513.47 at the event alone! We were so emotional, touched by everyone’s support and kindness.
To date, we have now raised a magnificent £1,463.00! Only £1,137 to go!!!!
Our darling Destiny will soon have the beautiful headstone that she deserves and it’s all down to the kindness of so many people who have been supporting us via our gofundme page from the beginning!
