I am sure even if you have not read them you are aware of the 'lost Mother's' threads.

I would like to ask you all to pledge to light a candle this Christmas eve, not just for the 'Lost Mothers' but for all Parents and children who are seperated, for whatever reason this Christmas.

Christmas is a time for families and the following is a poem/prayer written by a falsely accused mother;

I used to cover you with the blankets,
and tuck you up all warm.
I could keep you safe from the things
that go bump in the night
with a mere hug and a kiss goodnight.

We cannot be together at this time
so wanted you to know
that no matter where you are,
my heart is there with you
and every night, I cover you with a prayer,
to keep you safe and warm

Please help me light up the country with love for our children.

I am asking friends to light a candle this Christmas and say a little prayer or spare a thought for all chidren and parents who are seperated at this time of year.
If you would like to do this the candles are being lit on Christmas eve, let us see if we can light the country with hope and love for our 'lost' children.
The other objective is to try and educate just one person as to what MSbP is and what has been happening.
I wish you all seasons greetings, and I hope that you can all have the best Christmas that you are able. Let us hope and pay that 2005 brings about the changes in the law that we all want.
Love, Peace and Hope to all

Love to you bunglie - candle will be lit, and I will be thinking about you and all the other lost Mums xx

marzipan Wed 22-Dec-04 15:35:43

What a lovely idea Bunglie - we always light a candle to guide Mary and Joseph on their way to Bethlehem - but we can include a new meaning as well

marzipan Wed 22-Dec-04 15:40:44

Bunglie - just read the story - am in floods of tears at it - this is so sad


marzipan Wed 22-Dec-04 15:51:15

I feel so ashamed and selfish - I think I have problems at times but my God mine are minute compared to some of you lovely ladies - I hope that whoever or whatever your Higher Power is that they give you the strength to carry on and that happiness can be restored in your lives.

I think I have just had a Reality Check.

Thanks Bunglie, you have knocked me for six but in the best possible way - it certainly awakens the senses and mind to all those less fortunate.

Dear Bunglie I was listening to radio 4 this morning and they were discussing the reviewal of some cases and especially about the family courts and I was thinking of you. I do hope that the new year will bring you the hope of a review of your case, wishing you health and happiness in 2005 GRMUM x ps I'll light a candle over here too

champs Wed 22-Dec-04 16:00:21

pantomimEDAMe Wed 22-Dec-04 16:11:31

Lots of hugs Bunglie and of course we'll light a candle for you, you dh, ds and dd, and for all the other lost mothers.

Bless you,


Sorry I haven't been about much lately but you are always in my thoughts...

I feel so very sad now....pls excuse my ignorance but what would happen if you did speak out and go public??

Is there any other way to do it....i didn't realise this could happen...I know there are some freelance journalists on MNet... Do you think you could ask them to write a generalised article in a know get some media interest in this??

Of course I will light a candle on xmas eve and I wish you all the best for 2005
