This is Reece and Sophie, our two eldest grandchildren. Reece and Sophie are our eldest son's children from a previous relationship.
Reece was born in August 1990 and Sophie in July 1993 and they joined the angels in 1996, Sophie in July just before her third birthday and Reece three weeks later.
Reece and Sophie were born with a genetic disorder so rare the doctors couldn't put a name to it.
We were all overjoyed when Reece was born - our first grandson, what could be more perfect, and he was, at first. Within a matter of weeks Reece was in hospital with doctors fighting to control the constant fits he was suffering. Eventually we were given the devastating news that our precious boy had a condition that not only could they not name, but they couldn't cure and he would deteriorate. As with anything that life throws at you we coped. Whilst expecting Sophie's arrival we prayed, as you can imagine, that history would not repeat itself but it did.
Although unable to speak, move without assistance, or even sit up unaided, Reece and Sophie taught us so much. They hold a very special place in our hearts and are remembered every day in our prayers. Our family has been truly blessed with seven children, each of whom has brought something very special into our lives, be happy for us.
