MOLLY IN NEW ZEALAND
This photograph has really affected me.
Molly's handprint on the other side of the world
Paul Britton a legendary musician from the NWOBHM band Scarab
in New Zealand at Whangerai Falls.
In one moment, one click of the camera it epitomises
all we have achieved in the last three years.
To endure such loss, such grief and transform it into such a positive force
really is a triumph.
We only have Molly's handprint to show she existed and lived
all be it in utero for nine months.
Now she is known worldwide. She really is a symbol of hope now
we have gone on to have another baby girl in our fifties.
To take a form of music which can be misunderstood
and combine it with the tragic subject of Stillborns to raise funds and awareness did seem an impossible task.
But unbelievably it has worked and slowly and surely
we continue to grow and Molly's story and the image of
her tiny hand resonates around the planet.
I am incredibly proud of my wife Claire Mear of the work she has done and continues to do in Molly's name.
It's a difficult task at times, it's unbelievably emotive as I'm sure most people realise regardless of whether they have lost a child or not.
Thank you for all your love and kindness. X
