Danielle’s Story

Losing a partner, especially when they are young and healthy, is devastating. But dealing with the shock and grief when you also have a young baby depends on the support and love of those around you.

After eight years living together in the north of England, Danielle and Marcus decided to sell their house, buy a campervan and set off on an adventure.

They stopped travelling after five years when Danielle became pregnant, and settled in South Wales. Danielle and Marcus had decided very early on that they wanted children, but after 13 years they had assumed it would never happen. Danielle miscarried, but that heartbreak was lessened when she became pregnant with Isaac.

They moved into their new home a few months before he was born. read more…
