About this blog

My name is Kelly, I'm married to Russell, and we have four children - a daughter and son, and then two more daughters who both passed away just hours after being born. 


During pregnancy both Nina and Molly were deemed ‘incompatible with life' because of an unbalanced chromosome translocation. But we chose to continue on and carry to term - first with Nina in 2016, and then Molly in 2018 - despite the fact there was very little likelihood we'd meet them alive. 

This blog is my account of how we’ve dealt with things and all the curveballs life throws, as honestly and faithfully as we can.

This is our story
