On Thursday March 14, we said goodbye to our tiny 15 week son, Alexander.

A routine check-up with our obstetrician on Wednesday revealed his little heart had stopped beating.

I delivered him in the wee hours of Thursday morning.  He looked as though he had simply fallen asleep.

Birdy wept when I told her that her baby brother had died in Mummy’s tummy.

She drew Alexander asleep in his basket surrounded by twinkling stars.  She told me each star represents the love of one of his brothers and sisters, which will shine on him forever.

There are no words to express our sadness.

Alexander Macdonald Roe.


We will always love you xxx
