“July of last year we lost our baby and in the process my wife was left fighting for her life.”
“Exactly 12 months later and after 40 hours of labour with an emergency C-section Ocean-Torin was born.”
“The trauma her body and mind went through in that year is beyond anything I can possibly comprehend. Helpless, all I could do was hold her hand. And once again, I fell in love just a little bit more.”
