Arthur’s story

Arthur Roger Steven Layton is Adam and Emma’s second child and first boy but sadly we didn’t get to meet him.

It was a Sunday evening in June 2012 when Emma felt things were wrong and headed to hospital. Those words that no parent wants to hear, broke her and Adam’s hearts, “there’s no heartbeat, we are really sorry”

He was beautifully formed, over 2lb in weight and, at 32 weeks gestation, capable of survival had the problems been seen just a few days earlier.

These really are his feet. He lives in our hearts and our memories and we look forward to meeting the little lad who got fast-tracked to heaven, but we really really really wish that we could have had time with him.
