    Hi everyone, as you all know sadly these little ladies heartbreakingly lost their daddy (Dom) yesterday.
    For all of you that know Karen, Dom and the girls you will know that they have had the most horrendous four years. As a couple they had to face the loss of a child, their loved son Finlay. At the young age of two Lily lost her baby brother and Emily was separated from her twin x Emily and Finlay were born at home at 32 weeks to a very brave mum and dad, with the support of Karen's mum and big sister Nic (my best mate). Tragically Finlay was born sleeping but Emily was born a total fighter and amazed everyone, her mummy and daddy were so strong and with each passing day Emily grew stronger. How one family could have so much strength has always amazed me and I am still in total awe of how they coped, when most would fall apart x
    Although Karen and Dom separated they remained a constant part of the girls and each other's lives, I would often see Lily and her daddy looking at the animals in pets at home on a Sunday morning x
    I know that nothing can ever bring back Dom to the girls but with Christmas coming and Finlay's fourth anniversary in January, I wanted to do something nice as a surprise, for them and their mummy, to let them know we are all thinking of them and for them to see how much we love them all x forgive me if I add you to this group and you don't wish to be, please remove yourselves x on the flip side please add anyone you feel would like to join x
    Any ideas are welcome, let's do our best to try and make Christmas magical for these special ladies, they more than deserve it xx

    Most importantly no one tell Karen xxx

      Thankyou all so much for your kind donations!! Karen is totally overwhelmed and so grateful to all of you! I've extended the amount of time I can have this page going so we can hopefully raise abit more. Hopefully enough to send Karen and the girls on a little break away and maybe a headstone for their gorgeous boy, Finlays grave. 💙
