Please, no more dead babies! I heard this morning of another baby gone too soon. Another baby born peacefully, loved and wanted and taken. I can't stand it. I can't stand thinking of another family going through this shit.

My thoughts and love are with Freddie and his beautiful family.

Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. I thought of you when I heard about this.

    I don't know why this happens. I don't know why it happens to lovely families. There are no words to make it better.

    You're in my thoughts and tears ((((hugs))))

  2. its just devastating and should never happen to anyone, not the mother , not the father and definitely NOT to the sweet innocent baby. the world is all wrong at times xxx warm hugs, anne

  3. I agree. I didn't know Freddie or his family, but I agree wholeheartedly. No more. It needs to stop.

  4. Dear jeanette,
    I was at the start of my pregnancy when you lost Florence; i do remember you and i went looking for your blog as the messages of pain began to pop up on FB from people who knew you better back then. I read your blog, full of my own anxieties about a pregnancy that had started badly and read what you had written about how your children cried that night as you never wanted to hear them cry again.

    And i thought, "Oh my god. This is going to happen to me."

    And i didn't know what to write to you because there i was still with a fighting chance of having a baby and full of irrational dread and not wanting to spy or intrude or, appear to wallow in paranoia.

    But i thought of you every day. And when Freddie was born i thought of you and couldn't believe it was happening to me just as it had happened to you - and i have thought of you every day since.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog - it means the world to me.

  5. Oh my.

    I clicked on the link and realised I knew of Merry and her family from an e-group I was part of. One I left after Emma died. I am heartbroken for them.

    Rest well, little Freddie.

  6. Merry - I posted on your blog for the first time the other day and I kind of know Jeanette cause she was pg with Florence at the same time as I was pg with Willow (our rainbow baby).

    Just wanted to say hi though cause I have been reading your blog for ages (since Josie was 2, I think) and you inspired me to HE.

    I can't believe this has happened to you too. I'm so sorry about Freddie. Lots of love to you all xxx



Hi, I love to hear from readers, hate to think I'm talking to myself here, so don't be shy say hello!
