Knowing that there is a chance we might not have Annie for very long was a thought I couldn’t comprehend. Probably, because I didn’t want to.
As I was holding her, I suddenly realised that I could feel her heart beating on mine. Her heart was beating probably twice as fast (I could see on the computer!), but it somehow felt in perfect unison.
That close cuddle, which I take for granted with my two boys, felt ever so special.
