baby Rita


baby Rita hand
Originally uploaded by djbebe
Bad news: we had our baby two weeks ago, at 24 weeks, and she didn't make it. I just went into pre-term labour, and she was just too small. She had very long fingers and toes like her mum, and a nose like her dad. We called her Rita.

We had lots of fantastic support from family and friends - big thanks to you all - and are on the road to recovery. Looking at that little hand is still the hardest thing.

I will be back with some good news soon.
