When Real Life .. Cancels Christmas

Hi everyone , some of you have followed the story of our little guy Toby on Facebook, He was due to join our existing little family on January 2nd 2020, he decided that he was going to arrive early at 27 weeks, on the 5th October, since then we have nearly lost him twice, most recently he has had a shunt operation to remove excess fluid from his brain,  hes a genuine tough guy and fighting through everything, the last 8 weeks have been hard work emotionally and financially as my partner is self employed but we have covered  over 3000 miles in total  just to visit Toby, My partner was planning to do as much work as he could to try and give our awesome 5 and 4 year old children a normal Christmas, this Monday he was diagnosed with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes, he cant work for the next few weeks and he wants to provide the Christmas that these little 2 really deserve they have been through alot already and now daddy is poorly,  any small donation will help ...... happy Thanksgiving.... and a Merry Christmas to you and your families xx
