My tree does not have an angel on top. No, what it has is a rather plain, very slightly sparkly silver star.
But it does have angels on it. Four of them. These smiley faces belong to the angels on my tree.
Their names are Craig, Jacob, Brody and Charlie. They had the same syndrome that my Carys has, and in just over a year, they all earned their angel wings. I got to know them through their lovely, brave mothers on facebook. Their lives were short and bittersweet, but full of love, and in that time they taught us so much. I can’t believe they’re gone. RIP little lovelies. Gone, but NOT forgotten.
