“Initially we thought that we had missed out on his important ‘firsts’; first smile, first steps, first words, but actually we have our own and very special ‘firsts’.

“The first time he fell asleep in my arms, the first time he ran to me and my partner for a cuddle when he fell over, the first time he volunteered a good night kiss, the first time he enjoyed a meal I had cooked for him, the first time he drew a picture of me and the first heartfelt, carefree squeal of delight whilst being thrown high in the air by his daddy.”
