Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On the 19th July 2006 my whole world ended when my son, Joseph Allan, was stillborn. Nothing can ever prepare you for such a loss and I look back now and wonder how I ever survived it, at times I'm not even sure that I did. I have spent the last decade feeling as though I let my son down in some way and now, on what would have been his tenth birthday I hope to make him proud.

I am throwing a "SANDS Summer Soiree" event, details of which can be found on our Facebook page

https://www.facebook.com/events/244671569204347/

but for those who are unable to attend and have asked to donate instead, I have set up this Just Giving page in his memory.

There will never be enough words to express just how truly devastating it was to lose my son, nor to explain how difficult it has been to simply wake up each morning knowing that he is not with us, but I have been so lucky to have had the love and support of so many, and for that I am truly grateful.

Thank you in advance for your kind donations and most of all for holding Joseph in your hearts and thoughts throughout the last decade. Lots of love, Laura Dove. xxx
