Hi Nikki Congratulations on the arrival of Finn. What a great new future for you all. Having just looked after two four month old boys - our twin grandsons, it is an exhausting but really worthwhile time. Best wishes Sailor The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea.

"Congratulations Nikki" ( sorry its nearly 3 months late) i just logged on after so many months of the site and saw you holding your new precious angel baby.... how exciting it must be for you and your partner too. All the best and may he bring you joy and happines everyday of your lives. You have given so much hope for young women that there is a chance of conceiving after cancer and you are living proof of that... Take care and enjoy his presence Missy Moo
