Remembering



 Today saw a end to a nearly 32 year old battle of a family wanting to bring closure to the disappearance and death of their baby daughter taken by a dingo.

As I watched the interview with Lindy Chamberlain -Crieghton tonight I was transported to being back in high school - year eight , when this story tragically began.

 But tonight I was also drawn as I listened to her talk about not being angry but just sad, talking about the feeling of finally having a conclusion to this long and painful saga I was interested to hear this mum's need and want to move forward and not let this define her any longer.....

It was not until she was asked by the interviewer, if she spends time wondering what her baby girl would have been like now as a 32 year old that the tears began to flow.....

tears that I could relate to, tears that touched this mother heart.

Why do things happen to our "babies".......answers that we will never have ....
whatever the circumstances of such lose we have choices....
choices to be strong , to move forward , to seek answers and finally. find peace in ourselves.

My mother heart beat hard for that mother tonight as I shared her pain, although very different circumstances, but still that feeling of wondering what could have been.

  1. What a horrible thing to go through. My heart goes out to her and the whole in her heart that the loss has made. So sad.

    On a brighter note I want to thank you for visiting my little blog and for following. I love your aprons and bags. I have some aprons made. I need to get them photographed and a post put together. I am looking forward to a wonderful blogging friendship, Have a lovely week, Connie :)

  2. Once a parent always a parent Bron - it doesn't matter how far away they are or how long they've been gone.

    Thinking of you and all the mums that have baby sized holes in their hearts and hoping that I'll have stopped crying by Friday. x

  3. OH MY GOODNESS! WOW! What a story. I am left with a huge amount of sadness for what this family went through (especially this mother)at a moment in their life when they needed a large amount of love. This woman is so brave. What struck me was that she said she has guilt for what she didn't do... Aw, my heart aches for her. If I could I would give her a mothers hug. I am sending one to you too Bron! Thank you for sharing this story it was very touching. x
