MY CHARLIE BEAR

Anne-Marie's poem to her son, who sustained a brain injury from a swimming pool accident. 

  "3 year today
The day i nearly lost you
A day I'll never forget
And thats when I realised
I'd made a big mistake for I took my eyes of you
Thats when my heart began to break baby boy
I know that I loved you
But didnt know how bad
Until i nearly lost you
I thought I really had
PLEASE forgive me son

I really love you so
I'll allways be here for you
I'll never let you go
I hate today I really do
But you an me together baby boy
We will pull through
MY CHARLIE BEAR"

Any parent knows that accidents are unavoidable where children are concerned. However guilt is also a natural feeling when your child has an accident- even when it's no one's fault.  We met Anne-Marie and her son Charlie in 2013 when he was receiving rehabilition following an accident in which he fell into a swimming pool and susatined a brain injury.  Since then we have kept in touch and witnessed Anne-Marie's unwavering love and dedication to Charlie.  The family live in Surrey and Charlie goes to a specialist school where he is doing really well.  This is a poem she has shared with us. The below video shows Anne-Marie encouraging Charlie in improving his strength. If you have feelings similar to Anne-Marie, you can get more information here.
