A message from Charlie...

It's hard to draw a comparison between how we feel this New Year's Eve and how we felt last year.
So much lay ahead of us.

We couldn't begin to imagine how we would get through everything that was coming without the strong and steady presence of Dad.

We were terrified beyond words that we might end up seeing the next New Year in without our precious boy.

But what a difference a year makes.

Charlie's long-dreaded Fontan was a total success and our beautiful boy is here with us - full of life, love and laughter.

So often, we see flashes of his Grandpa in him, in his bravery and stoicism (and in his love of slapstick comedy!)

We look back over the last 12 months, full of thanks, as we count our many blessings.

Thank you for being with us this past year, for your love, support and help.

I feel sure that this year would have been so much harder without you all walking alongside us.

I have no doubt that 2011 will be filled with its own - as yet unknown - challenges, and I'm looking forward to sharing it all with you!

Wishing you all a happy, peaceful and healthy 2011.
