Everything happens for a purpose
We met Chris and Debs at our friends’ wedding a number of years ago, at a time when none of us had children. The two of them were a ton of fun. They had flown in from Australia. We believe we were meant to sit at their table at that wedding, so that we could sit at this table together in Canberra this year. And at many tables to come. We also saw them in England a few weeks after Coraline was born as they were over.
This year they made the journey to see us in Canberra from Sydney where they live, with their daughter Elsden. Elsden is a year older than Coraline and she has Down’s Syndrome. It was Chris and Debs who Kevin contacted when Coraline was born and I needed a few words. We just loved hanging out with them here and getting to know them and Elsden better. The three of them are a ton of fun.
