Olivia

My husband’s grandma who I was close to,  knitted a baby blanket for each great-grandchild. She also did this for our second daughter Olivia who passed away at four months. I put her blanket away in a special memory cupboard, where you could see her blanket amongst her other things. Following the birth of our third daughter we received another beautiful knitted blanket. Unfortunately not long after my husbands grandma passed away. Last year my brother-in-law and his wife were expecting their first child and did not have one of the famous blankets! As I had three I decided that I would give him my youngest daughter’s blanket. With my eldest daughter her blanket being for the winter and Olivia’s more for summer I had been contemplating what to do with my fourth child going to be born this summer. I discussed it with my husband and he told me to follow my feelings in this but I still was not sure what to do. I did not discussed it with anyone else but gave it a lot of thought.  Whilst having  a meeting with a fantastic medium, she gave me a reading a told me whilst in contact with my daughter Olivia that she was saying that there was a baby blanket in a cupboard and that I was unsure if I should use it with the new baby. She told me that Olivia really wanted me to use it as it would bring her closer to the baby. This was such amazing evidence for me (not that I needed anymore) but it gave me the answer that I was seeking. It was so beautiful how my daughter tried to get through to me to tell me to use the blanket. She even said that if I found it too hard I could always use it for special occasions.
