In June of 1999 my beautiful, amazing daughter Alice was born in Peterborough District Hospital at 6.00pm. She was tiny weighing just 5lb 8oz. When she was born she was whisked away quite fast as she decided she wasn’t quite ready to arrive. But very quickly she was cleaned and looked over and her father brought her back to me all wrapped up and warm. He said she was gorgeous but had a poorly hand. Alice was born with a fully functional right hand but sadly, Alice only had a small palm and 2 rigid tiny fingers on her left hand. Despite this we very quickly learned that Alice was a very determined young lady right from the start!
