April 10th – A Big Day in the Life of a Little Boy

Twice before the invitations to the Christening were sent and twice it was cancelled. The bad news of Hodgkin’s spread its evil presence in our lives.

The third time the charm? A day was chosen to celebrate Gavin’s 1st Birthday and his Christening Day to also be the 1 year anniversary of the first time his Uncle Chris first held his nephew – There was laughter, children , blessings, love and silent tears and wishes of what “should’ve been” and what is ….

CONNECTED STILL through toys ,tears and love……..
