On the 7th of April 2010 i gave birth to a big baby boy whom we named Dayn John Isaac August, Came into a loving family and a very young mum with a 18 month girl already (Lara Lynn August). I came from a family whom let babys do what they like to an extent, i let lara lay on her belly when she was a baby, Got told your not ment to but Lara loved it so i didn’t really mind, i knew she was fine. I get told she has been raised really well, from me coming from a broken family and all. Lara listens to every word i said and knows if she don’t she just goes to time out. i don’t even have to say. I never really knew what sids were or what things can happen to children when they are still newborns but then it hit me……. Hi my name is Bonnie-Lee im 23 years of age and i lost my son Dayn John Isaac August, on the 20th of June 2010 ( 4 days till my 19th) to RSV, i donated his brain to research. his spirt has moved on so wanted to help any other familys out there that may loss there children, hope it helps…. He was 8 weeks old, most presious baby ever, went threw gastro at 3 weeks he caught it from his sister who is now 6. Lara Lynn loves her brother, helping me change his bum and bottle feeding him for me while i change, i pumped milk just so she could feed him. when he had a little “attention sook” Lara was the first to his side with a freshly pump bottle of milk, she misses him as mush as i do but she knows what is going on and i can’t take the hurt away that she is feeling, Dayn has a wonderful family but im going threw ALOT. it don’t help when my partner just puts his walls up when i try and speak about it. No idea if thats what men do but it don’t help me out at all. He will be 5 years soon and can’t wait to see him again, I still have most of his things but will be donating it to the right people, I will also be buying Dayn Pressies on his birthday/Mothers day/easter/Fathers day and christmas, donating them to a different place every year. theres one thing i do know and thats his great nanna and puppa is looking after him, Hi my name is Bonnie-Lee and that is my story!!!
