RIP little Jennifer

My heart is crushed today. Two of our dear supper club friends were expecting their little girl - their first child - to arrive this week. We had dinner with them on Sunday afer church and laughed together about nappy duty and our nicknames for her.

Less than 24hours later, baby Jennifer died after a tight knot in her umbilical cord cut off her blood supply.

Her poor parents are broken. My heart aches for them.

the same thing happened to my ex step mother - and I don't think she ever really recovered emotionally from it.

My heart goes out to your friends.

Sending love and keeping you in my prayers xx
