We are very sad to share that our beautiful baby boy Theo Benedict was born still on Friday night at 18 weeks.  He stopped moving on Monday and a scan confirmed his death on Tuesday.  He was perfect, no reason for his death has been identified.  Please hold us in your thoughts today as we lay him to rest with his grandfather and also in the next few weeks and months as we and our three big ones come to terms with losing our precious little one.

 

Anna, Leah, Bede , Emmett and Florence
