We are not all about doom and gloom at The Hip Infant but there are some stories that just need to be shared and this one is very close to my heart.
Six months ago my oldest sons best buddy Dom lost his father very suddenly to a heart attack, it was an awakening for my little man as he had just spent the Easter break camping with the family.
As parents we had to deal with emotions from our heart broken son that we never thought we would have to, he soon rationalised that if Dom’s father could pass away so suddenly then so too could his own father. It is hard to explain to a little person that what happened was just ‘one of those things’.
My motivation for sharing this story is to create awareness, hopefully one day there will be no little boys out there fearing that their father will suddenly pass away as’ just one of those things’.
So please grab a tissue and read Andy’s Story written from the heart by my very amazing friend,fellow mother to four equally amazing children and wife to Andy. I am so glad she chose to live life as I am one of the lucky ones that reap the rewards of having her in my life!
