In July 2013, my wife, Stephanie and I were eagerly awaiting the birth of our first child, Oliver. On the 31st July he was born still, too precious for our earth. Weighing a tiny 2lb 9oz.
Our world was shattered, our dreams and plans all gone. We planned to leave with a new baby and instead left with a little blue box.
The little blue box has now become the most precious possession we own. Inside are keepsakes, Oliver’s footprints for example. The things we simply couldn’t of even thought we would have wanted to have done.
4Louis gave us a link to Oliver, a token of his life that would never leave us. Oliver would be 5 this July, we’ve wanted to do the GNR since he was born but somethings always got in the way. This year is our year.
We have to raise a minimum of £200 each so I’ve set our target at £600 with each and every penny going directly to 4Louis to help other families in this awful situation. This is to hit the asking donation amount and give a slightly little bit more.
Nothing makes the pain go away but this certainly helps.
