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 💔
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!
