      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. My ten year old son

    Four weeks ago, my 10 year old son, Cameron, passed away. He was born with a rare genetic syndrome that caused his life to be full of hardships, seizures and illness. He could not walk or talk but he was a gorgeous little soul and was loved by so many. For four hours after his life support was removed i held him in my arms and sang to him until he passed with my husband(his father) and his aunts and grandparents all by our sides. I have two younger children 8 and 4 years old. Although we were aware that Cameron would not have a long life, before he passed he had been really healthy and well for 12 months. So we were all taken by surprise at how quickly he became unwell and put on life support. I am so broken. Everything is so different. I feel so lonely and lost. What was a life full of looking after his medical and daily needs...(he was 100% dependant on me and his respite carers for everything)....is now just me trying to get by day by day aching, trying to be ok for the other kids but just wanting to be in bed crying. I miss him so much. I just want him back in my arms. r'ee (pronounced "Ray") This photo was taken a week before he passed.
