12 years on...

My first born, a baby girl named Angelique, would have been 12 this year. Her birthday is on 23 March and every year we remember her on her birthday. It has become our family tradition to celebrate her birthday with cake and candles and to use the opportunity as a 'thanksgiving' celebration of sorts in honour of her.

We each blow out a candle and think about what we are thankful and grateful for and talk about what we appreciate about each other, and why we are glad to have each other in our lives.

I think it's a nice way to mark her birthday and the role she played in our lives and in our family.

Happy birthday baby girl...


  1. Happy Birthday to your little angel. I think it is wonderful that you celebrate it.

  2. Happy birthday to your angel

  3. Happy birthday to your Anger

  4. I have always thought this a precious thing to do. We meet with Compassionate Friends on the 16th of April to work on our Babies Born Sleeping programme. Would love your input if its not too hard for you. x
