Thanking you all.

Thank you everyone for you love and support, it gives us great comfort to read all your messages. The last few days have been tense, emotional, exhausting, loving, hating, anxious, relaxed and completely stressed all rolled into one. The monsoon of Delhi ended up lending a hand, completely flooding the streets, forcing us to stop, take a breath, relax, read and sleep.

After two days filled with paperwork and logistics, we are finally on the home straight. The boys will be cremated in Delhi tomorrow. Next week we will take the ashes back to our hometown of Melbourne where a memorial service will be conducted with family and friends.

I just want to thank the staff at the New Born Centre (where Benjamin stayed for seven weeks) and Dr Shivani, the staff at SCI have been absolutely wonderful looking after us and the boys.

Thank you all out there too.

Phil and Sam xxxx
