Going to the website was very difficult for me because Ben had been born at the same time and not made it. So going there was hard, but soon I became so enthralled in the story of the terrific trio as they were known, that I fell totally in love with these three babies and of course their stunningly brave and beautiful parents. I logged on every day to check their progress, several times a day, I was hooked. I think they were in the NICU for about 3 months. Charles, Tess’s husband writes extremely well and he kept myself and the rest of the world updated as to their progress.
Eventually, one by one, the three little angels came home. Jasper the big brave boy, Sela the gorgeous diva and Carys the tiniest little angel.
Then, somehow, not even sure how it happened ,but Tess emailed me, I think she read my blog. I was so excited, I felt like someone famous had recognized me. We started emailing back and forth and we now email every day, she has been a huge source of comfort and strength for me. She says a prayer for me every day.
You know how you just ‘click’ with someone? Well it’s like that with Tess.
Tess is a really good writer, she is also very funny. She is actually one of those women who you want to hate, but can’t. She is really beautiful on the inside and out, funny, kind, sweet, good person, clever etc. I eventually persuaded her to start a blog which she has done. She has very little time, what between feeding three tiny hungry trips, looking after her 3 year old Sebastian, writing up witty articles for her other job as a celeb reporter etc. But she still finds time to blog. They live in Hong Kong, which is all v glam etc.
Go read her blog, she is such an inspiration.
Apparently having trips and a 3 year old seems to take up just a smidgen of your time, so using capital letters and worrying about grammar is not top of the priority list. And she is a tiny bit technically illiterate so we will have to get her to do an ‘about me’ page and links etc, but at least she is blogging. We will get there.
