DH died when I was 36 weeks pregnant. DD2 is two today! (DD1 nearly 6). Since she was born I've got back to work nearly full time, learned to drive and done the London marathon in aid of CRUK. My daughters are happy and healthy and have the most amazing bond. I've made a ton of mistakes but right now I just want to be proud.
