THE devastated dad of two twin toddlers killed over Christmas has paid tribute to his “beautiful babies” as his wife is charged with their murders. Steve Ford shared a heart-breaking tweet with a photo of the 23-month-old tots, Jake and Chloe, kissing after they died on Boxing Day night. He wrote: “Daddy's twins xxx my beautiful babies. I love you” His wife Samantha Ford, 37, has been charged with the murders of Jake and Chloe. The tots, who were looking forward to their second birthday, were found dying at the home they moved into with Samantha three weeks ago. Her brother James Emptage, 27, fought back tears as he told The Sun: “It’s a terrible tragedy. I will pay tribute but not right now.” Her grandmother Pamela Emptage, 80, said: “They were lovely. I mean they were not even two years old yet. It’s absolutely tragic.” Samantha is believed to have moved into the rented house in Margate, Kent, a year after buying a home in … [Read more...] about Dad’s heartbreaking tribute to his ‘beautiful babies’ after wife, 37, is charged with murdering 23-month-old twins

All day, we sorted through thousands of photos and messages flagged as inappropriate on a meet-up app. We sat nearby, but our office had a strict no-talking rule, so our relationship began in silence as we sent each other funny things we found via Gchat. This led to more messaging until one day we grew tired of talking about nudes and decided to see each other naked instead. — Kristine Murawski Searching for Self-Love … [Read more...] about Tiny Love Stories: I Said, ‘I Love You.’ He Said, ‘Thanks.’
THE last words 15-year-old Georgia Mann said to her mother before she was tragically killed by a suspected drink driver were "Goodbye, I love you mum", a heartbreaking interview has revealed. Michelle Mann, 47, phoned her teenage daughter to check she was safe just over an hour before a van ploughed into the car she was in and left her critically injured. Beautiful Georgia, of Sittingbourne, Kent had been out for a meal before getting picked up by a pal to go to a friend's house on Wednesday night last week. Michelle said: "At about 10pm that night I called her up to check that she was safe before I went to bed. I'm quite an overprotective mum. "Whenever Georgia goes out I always ring her to find out who she's with, where they're going and how she's getting back. "Like always she told me she was fine and that she was being picked up. I said: 'okay, love you,' "The last thing she said to me was 'Goodbye, I love you mum.'"

HUFFPOST PERSONAL 08/09/2018 08:31 am ET Lindsay CurtisGuest Writer After nearly 48 hours of grueling labor, my first-born child slipped from my body and was placed into her father’s arms. As I listened to the sound of her first cries, my heart both soared and shattered. At just 22 years old, I gave birth as a traditional surrogate mother, meaning I used my egg to conceive with the intention of having a baby for someone else to raise. Traditional surrogacy is less common than gestational surrogacy, which involves the surrogate carrying a child who is not genetically related to her. This is primarily because of the legal and emotional complexities involved in traditional surrogacy. But on that day two men became dads, filled with joy, ready to embrace their new daughter and the journey ahead. I became a sort-of mom ― a birth mother (not quite like adoption but not a “real” mom raising a child, either.) In my early 20s, my maternal … [Read more...] about I Chose To Be A Surrogate Mother.

HUFFPOST PERSONAL 08/07/2018 08:30 am ET Joanna SchroederGuest Writer I never planned on breastfeeding my kids. In all honesty, I never even imagined myself becoming a mother. My teen years and early 20s were spent just trying to get my act together. I had an anxiety disorder, depression and was married and divorced from my first husband by the time I was 23 years old. But once I met my husband, Ivan, everything changed. I was in love with him, and in love with the idea of making a family with him. And so we did. In the end, I decided that I’d give breastfeeding a try, just to say I did. It turned out to be one of the bravest, best decisions of my life. Now I have a brand new, super adorable baby; bringing our grand total of kids to three. That means that, in the end, these old boobs will have fed and nurtured babies for more than four years. You could say that my breasts have earned a bachelor’s degree in breastfeeding. But that doesn’t mean it … [Read more...] about ‘Zombie Nips’ And 9 Other Things No One Tells You About Breastfeeding
