15 Sep Leigh’s story
My beautiful daughter died in 2014 at Great Ormond Street Hospital from a rare heart condition.
She was 89 days old.
Since her death my life has changed irrevocably and the stepping stones taken in a daily basis are always done with her beside me.
The pain doesn’t ease but you learn to live alongside it.
It’s also made me feel the lows and highs of life so much more intensely and so I’ll always be grateful she chose me to be her mummy. Xxx
