After a lot of soul searching, alternative therapies, counselling, crying, grieving, stupid diets, praying to a God that does not exist, blaming everything, hatred of one’s self, working 24/7 to bury the constant disappointment and disbelief.
This time last year there came an opening, an awakening, a wanting for something better, a need to turn everything around into a positive, a wanting to stop being miserable and depressed and to try again......
It is with the greatest of pleasures and the most amount of obvious worry, that Brian and I would like to announce to the world the imminent arrival of our second baby girl, Amelie Mear. I just turned 50 in February and I am currently 25 weeks pregnant and finally brave enough to tell the world, that we will be having a healthy baby girl sometime late May early June.
I wish to voice her arrival and be proud of the incredible journey it’s taken us both to get here.
This year we are donating to Down Syndrome North East charity.
Molly Mear had Downs syndrome, once this had sunk in at 23 weeks gestation, we made the unanimous decision to give her every chance in life. We researched the condition and found that there are so many children who grow up into fully active, very clever and incredibly humorous individuals.
Yes, she would have been ‘different’ both Brian and myself
Sadly, somewhere along her utero journey Molly decided not to be born to us this time round.
We both feel very passionate about this condition and I for one want to run up and hug every baby, child and adult who has Downs.
They are magical human beings who are full of love and fun.
At Mearfest North / Newcastle we hope to raise a good amount of funds for this cause
So they can all enjoy trips away, other events, keep their wonderful facilities moving forward and to ultimately enjoy their amazing lives with this donation.
Down’s Syndrome North East is the leading organisation for the help and support of all people with Down’s Syndrome and their families and friends. We cover Northumberland, Tyneside, Wearside, Durham and Teesside.
Our next Mearfest charity event is in Newcastle on the 5th March at Trillions.
