I miss my baby 👼🏾

So I was having a moment today and I reached for my camera to document it for my YouTube channel, Michelle Clarke TV.

You have all been so supportive that I thought I should share it with you all also.

So here it is…

Destiny’s Headstone 😍

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.

Details are as follows;

God Bless you all 🙏🏾

Baby Memorial Service 2017

It’s been 8 hours since we attended the baby memorial service in our local area.

As Destiny died in January 2017, this was our first baby memorial service and it was so beautiful. I would have rather not had a reason to attend but I felt so proud to be one of many parents who’s tears fell and who’s hearts was breaking into tiny pieces throughout the service. We all had something in common and it felt comforting. I no longer felt alone in my grief.

During the service, we sung comforting hymns and lit candles for all the babies who’s names were not read out. WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.

We didn’t stay for refreshments. It was too much for me as I felt like I was reliving her funeral all over again.

The pain from the anxiety started to build in my chest and I knew it was time to go.

I turned to my husband for reassurance that this awful pain will someday ease and we’ll just be left with the wonderful memories of the few days that we spent with our angel after her birth in the Willow suite.

Destiny’s big brother slept all the way through the service and her big sister sung the hymns and carefully lit a candle for her baby sister.

We smiled in unison as Destiny’s name was read out. DESTINY JAYDE CLARKE

She will ALWAYS be…

Dancing 4 Destiny Fundraiser

IMG_8176

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!
