Every day we experience the pain and devastation of Kallipateira’s preventable death but when October arrives this brings us so many more reminders and dates that we will never forget.
In what is our toughest month of the year on Saturday 22nd October Ben’s dad Martin, Kallipateira’s and Apollons Grandad, died just days away from Kallipateira’s 4th Birthday.
Last night on Saturday October 29th exactly a week after Ben’s dad died, Gaynor’s mum Jennifer passed away .
One comfort is knowing Kallipateira will have the company of even more family who love her.
We will always acknowledge Kallipateira’s Birthday – our daughter exists.

A visit to Wainhouse Tower – Halifax
You may have seen us light up Wainhouse Tower in pink and blue with our friends at Calderdale Council during Baby Loss Awareness Week . The tower has been closed for a very long time but was opened for one day only – on Kallipateira’s 4th Birthday! We went up the 359 steps and spent time some thinking of Kallipateira while taking in the amazing views across Halifax and beyond.
