Today sees another year pass since we farewelled our tiny first born daughter Laura.

She was born on the 11th March at 11pm and today marks her 11th birthday – in some customs that is considered your golden birthday – when your age coincides with your date of birth.  I guess for us Laura will always be our golden child  – she was never naughty or never threw a tantrum – she will forever be the perfect child who left an incredible imprint on our life in her very short time with us.

As we do every year we visited Laura’s special place in the baby lawn at the cemetery last weekend.  This time both Sienna and I decided to video record our visit instead of lots of photos and I have turned all our little snippets it into a short little movie.  We released 4 balloons to her in the sky and her present was a sweet little trinket box which the girls had fun filing with petals and coloured rocks.

More special memories of our four girls ….
