The words ‘we’re so sorry but this isn’t going to work’ echo round the room as you try and comprehend the implications. Your hopes and dreams for your child are crushed in a sentence. You had so wanted them to be right. They say she’s going to need more dangerous surgery, there is no happy ending today. You’ll be back in the same place, holding her hand, kissing her head, stroking her hair very soon. The scars in your heart will be mirrored on her chest. Life can sometimes be very cruel.
