Throw back Friday..

Once upon a time, Elin had the most amazing childminder ever. She also happened to be a good friend of mine-helpful! Oh and did i mention she lives practically across the road? Without you, Heather, I never would have been able to go back to work. I never would have gained back a bit of the old 'me' and started repairing the emotional damage since the trauma of Elin's birth and the subsequent diagnosis. You gave me a piece of my life back in your love and caring for Elin, because you made it ok for me to go back to my 'old life' (just a little, anyway). A small break from the worry, a chance to be Ruth for a bit and not only 'Elin's mummy'. We trusted you completely, you took everything in your stride- the medications, the responsibility, the seating issues- even with four boys of your own you dedicated two years of your life to aiding Elin's development and finding different ways to stimulate her day in, day out. You will always be a part of Elin's life and it was you who gave her the start she so deserved- probably why she is so sociable and happy today. We can never thank you enough for what you did for Elin, but also for us, in those early days. So today's 'Throw back Friday' photo is taken from Elin's time with you and your boys, I know she stole your heart but I also know you stole hers, too. Heather- our angel.
