I know I don't post a lot these days, (never have time) but I need to ask a HUGE favour to anyone who would like to help - my close friend lost her Mum just a few weeks ago, they were very close and it hit my friend very hard. She and her husband have had other family traumas to deal with, and also threat of him being made redundant. All this while she was heavily pg with 2nd child. (Her son was born same day as my dd2) Anyway, she has just given birth to a beautiful little girl called Katie Ruth (Ruth was her Mum's name), and I think it would just be really nice and a boost to her if I could present her with a printout of birth congratulations from people she doesn't even know! I know it meant the world to me when I had dd2, I have kept my printout in dd2's babybook and it still makes me cry now if I look at it. So, I want to do this for her to let her know that there are lots of lovely people out there who can be genuinely happy for anyone who has just had their baby. Sorry to waffle on, but she's been a really good friend to me. Her name is Jo.
Thank you so much! Dahlia x

Huge congrats Jo, and welcome little katie ruth. I know times are hard, I lost my mum 2 weeks after Jessica was born and i know how hard things can be. Hopefully you can find strength within to carry on for your daughter's sake and join us here on mumsnet to talk things over when you feel ready. Jessica is now 7 months old and I am only just starting to be able to talk openly about my mum without crying at the same time. Your mum will be looking over little katie ruth and will guide you from above. My thoughts and prayers are with you, love and hugs from someone who knows how you are feeling xxxx

kernowcat · 24/02/2005 12:59

Hello Jo and Mr Jo and Toddler Jo! Well done on the arrival of Katie Ruth, I'm sure she'll bring so much love and pleasure to your lives and, of course, loads of fun!

welshmum · 24/02/2005 13:41

Well done Jo and welcome to the world little Katie Ruth - wishing you all the happiness in the world.
Jo, I lost my mum too and one of the biggest comforts in the world has been seeing her face in my daughter's - it's uncanny and wonderful to sometimes seeing a certain expression flit across her lovely little face and think 'That's mum'

Lucycat · 24/02/2005 14:03

Will bump this for you as it's just about to disappear!

Dahlia · 24/02/2005 14:05

Huge congratulations to Jo and Mr Jo and a great big welcome to Katie Ruth.

My mum never got to see my little boy, and it was the toughest part of bringing him into the world, but I know she loves him to pieces from where she is, and always will. Your mum will be the same, so proud and full of love. You are in my thoughts. Big {{{{{{{hugs}}}}}} to you and your family.
