I just want to say a big thank you to the producers of RTE’s Nationwide for coming to our home and filming a piece about Butterfly Barn and the issues it deals with. Thank you to the ladies in Feileacain for travelling to Waterford to be involved and for the fantastic work they do every day to help people to cope with this huge loss.
It was difficult to go back to 2002 when it happened to me. I just want to say your baby/babies will never leave you. They were here for a reason, you were blessed for just a short time. It’s important to see that even when it hurts to the core. I’ve met many parents over the years who feel this way. It’s not a conversation they have lightly, just one that comes up if they happen to have heard that you are travelling the same road. There has to be something in the fact that people say ‘you have your little angels now.’ Let’s treasure them be it in the butterflies, rainbows, sunlight, stars. However you want to treasure them. They are yours.
