New programme on Channel 4, Tuesday at nine o'clock. Can't wait to see how they're all doing.

I'm looking forward to this too. My heart is always in my mouth when Shelby is ill though.

TensionWheelsCoolHeels Sun 28-Feb-16 17:43:41

Me too, it's been a wonderful series & I'm looking forward to seeing how they are all getting on now.

SaguaroBlossom Sun 28-Feb-16 18:11:51

Clashes with Happy Valley though. But I can't hear what's going on in that as the sound is so bad! Heart is always in mouth for Shelby and her indomitable mum.

Fantastic - thankyou for the heads up.

Pud2 Sun 28-Feb-16 20:17:57

Such a good programme. I wonder how William is too, and his mum.

Shelby and Williams mums were on breakfast news this morning. Shelby isn't doing well unfortunately sad She needs alot of blood transfusions. I really admire all the participants, I don't think people have a clue what life with an ill child is like they both said they feel they are raising awareness.

Just talking about it in itv now.

Goingtobeawesome Tue 01-Mar-16 21:02:33

Starting now

God even the trailer to this makes me well up. Amazing families.

I'm filling up over William. He's changed so much.

Nicknamegrief Tue 01-Mar-16 21:14:28

I'm watching and have watched ever since the beginning, I think I was pregnant with my oldest when the first series was shown.
William is such a charmer, what a smile on him.

Love this, and so pleased to see Shelby. I think she has touched so many hearts.

William is gorgeous.

bluebump Tue 01-Mar-16 21:34:33

I am watching, I've been following this since the start. I wonder which family decided not to take part this time.

ShapeShifting Tue 01-Mar-16 21:35:18

Amazing children and parents. I'm sobbing. I've never seen this before.

Goingtobeawesome Tue 01-Mar-16 21:38:20

Not all are featured this week.

sunnydayinmay Tue 01-Mar-16 21:38:28

Ah, my post disappeared! Think we're missing Emily, and the boy in New Zealand? Is she spelt Shelbie?

sunnydayinmay Tue 01-Mar-16 21:39:27

Gosh, Shelbie's brother is all grown up!

Ilikesweetpeas Tue 01-Mar-16 21:41:15

Can I watch a repeat of this anywhere? Only just realised that it's on. Tearing up already though...

TeeJaye Tue 01-Mar-16 21:44:29

Wonder why Nathan's family decided not to appear this series?

TeeJaye Tue 01-Mar-16 21:45:16

+1 on Sky?

ouryve Tue 01-Mar-16 21:46:23

We'll be watching it on 4+1 sweetpeas (when DS1 has gone to bed)

imwithspud Tue 01-Mar-16 21:50:33

Just watching now, what amazing children and what amazing parents. Tears in my eyes.

TeeJaye Tue 01-Mar-16 21:53:26

I have a disabled child myself but Shelbie's situation absolutely breaks my heart. Her parents are absolutely amazing, especially her step-Dad who took on all that responsibility at such a young age and he clearly loves her like his own.

HooseRice Tue 01-Mar-16 21:53:43

Amazing families. I wasn't going to watch as some of it is a bit close to home, but I'm glued.
