All About Me

Welcome

My name is Laura and I live in Norfolk with my husband Tom, youngest son Leo, and a very fluffy cockapoo called Rosie.

 

Findlay’s Story

 In July 2015 our son Findlay Eric was born.

After months of planning, preparation and excitement, he was finally here.

Our first, much loved and longed for, child.

He was perfect.

But he never took a breath.

He never opened his eyes.

Findlay was stillborn.

He silently entered the world, and our lives were changed forever.

What began as a journal and a series of letters to Findlay, written to try and make some sense of his death, has evolved into this blog.

A blog about surviving loss, muddling through parenthood, and creating a life which celebrates and honours our beautiful baby boy.

 

Why postcards?

Postcards are a way of sharing your adventures, memories and special moments with someone who did not (or perhaps could not) join you.

Receiving a postcard is a lovely reminder that, no matter how far the distance, you are in the sender’s thoughts.

Postcards for Findlay is my way of including Findlay in all that we see and do; making memories for him and letting him know that, no matter how long, he will always be a constant presence in our hearts and in our thoughts.

We share all of it with him.
