Washing, Georgie

I only very recently came across the website, Still Life 365 and one of the first things I read about was your challenge for the month of October. I think it's a terrific idea and extremely thought provoking.

Please find attached two photos of the same subject - our washing! As our laundry dries in the warm Africa breeze I often wonder what our daughter would have been wearing at this stage in her young life.

I live in Jinja, a small town on the River Nile in Uganda, with my husband Chris. On the 4th September 2008 our daughter, Ella, was stillborn at 26 weeks old and our world was turned upside down. Seven months later I miscarried at 12 weeks and we were advised that our chances of conceiving naturally again were close to zero.

Six months ago, and against the odds, Leo Phoenix roared into our lives and has given me the courage to breathe again.
