All about Bella

Bella was quite literally a wonderful little girl. Unwaveringly kind and thoughtful, we called her our little diplomat because she was always able to see another persons perspective and made friends with everyone she met. 

Bella genuinely cared about all of the people in her life and she showed her love to us all every day. Tidying her room today (she definitely shared her mothers general untidiness), we have found letters, poems, pictures and songs she had written for us as well as an Easter party complete with tiny wrapped up gifts for us all to enjoy - perhaps a parting gift from our incredible little girl. She had also kept birthday and Christmas cards from us, squirrelled away like little treasures in her dressing table drawer. These are the things that now bring us so much comfort and we are eternally grateful.

We are devastated to have lost Bella, but we hope that by setting up this page in her memory we can help other families to continue to receive the best possible care. Bella believed in magic, and we very much want to keep that magic alive for as many children as possible. We hope that this page will prove to be her own little miracle.

Beautiful inside and out. It was a little life but well lived, 

Goodnight sweetheart x
