My name is Charlotte and I'm going to tell you the story of why my daughter wants to cut her long hair off for charity .
The start of 2017 was good . I was living life to the full and found out I was pregnant with baby number six :) I was over the moon and even more happy that my big cousin Tracey was also expecting a baby a week or two before me :) I finally had someone to share my pregnancy with , someone to talk to about scans and baby clothes . This would be Tracey's and Jason's first baby so they were so excited and I was just as excited for them :)
A couple months had passed and it was time for our 20weeks scans . Tracey's was first then mine , and we both found out we were having girls :) another two Harrison girls to take over our family . While I was over the moon my cousin found out some heart wrenching news . I don't know the true extent of the news as living so far away it was hard to have a good chat so I can't tell you all the full extent but at this point Tracey and Jason's baby girl was happy in there for the time being . Harrison's are fighters :)
A few more weeks had past and my mum had spoken to Tracey's mum and we heard that she had to go in for an operation not only to help her but to deliver the baby to try and help her too . We all remained positive and hoped for the best . That day I remember I tried anything to take my mind off the wait . I wanted Tracey and baby to be well . Finally I got a call from my mum saying that baby was born by section and doing fine so far :) yes I was over the moon but was a hard wait to see if Tracey was well after her operation .
I went to school to pick up my eldest kids and got a phone call again from my mum . I thought this is the news I've been waiting for ! She told me that Tracey and Jason's baby had sadly died :( I ran home to cuddle my husband . I felt terrible . Terrible because I was too far away to hug Tracey . Terrible because I was to far away to be there for her . And terrible because I was carrying a little girl that was well . I wanted to hide from the world as I felt so sad that this sort of thing could have ever happened to such an amazing couple of people while having there first baby . If anyone deserves a family is Tracey and jase .
My seven year old daughter billie has such a kind and soft heart . She said to me one day . Mummy why are you sad ? I told her about her second cousin going to heaven and she mentions wanting to cut her hair off to raise money to help babies in heaven . I thought to myself what a superstar . Then brushed it over my shoulder as she didn't mention it again and though t she loves her hair . Billie has only ever had her hair cut once when she was two as she wants it long so it's past her bum so she looks like a princess .
A number of months had passed and our baby girl is born and now 13 weeks old . I was cutting billies brothers hair when she said to me . Mum I want to cut my hair off for charity to help family's like Tracey and jase to put wings on their babies so they can send them to heaven . Again I brushed it over . And again she said it so I mailed Tracey and asked her if it was okay for billie to do such a kind thing in memory of Emily and they were both so so happy that at a young age billie would do such a thing .
We contacted aching arms , 4louie and forget me not rooms . The three charity's that helped Tracey , Jason and the family get through such a hard time and they were delighted of billies kind heart as well .
I hope you all understand the reason billie wants to do her but for charity .
On the 30th of August billie will be live streaming her event on Facebook . She will be getting her long blond hair cut short in memory of Emily bould her angel cousin .
If you would like to sponser her then please do every little helps .
Show your support to Tracey and Jason on there adventure as they set out into the world to do there 73 in 73 challenge in memory of their daughter .
We are all so proud of the two of you . Your both strong amazing people each with a heart of gold and you both need to know that I love you so so much xxxx
