In The Arms Of An Angel

Our beautiful boy Joshua Rafael passed away on Saturday 22 January. He never fully recovered from the pneumonia at Christmas, and that combined with all the problems from his prematurity and complications at birth just meant that he had fought for so hard for so long, but it was not meant to be. He died peacefully at home in our arms.

We have had 10 months and 3 weeks with him that were filled with laughter and tears, worries and hope and he will always be part of our family. We will forever miss him and love him, but we take with us his fighting spirit and the knowledge that no matter how hard the situation was, he showed us not to despair  but just to hold on and cuddle him.

Godspeed little man, sweet dreams.
