#GrowHope with World Vision

World Vision are asking bloggers to share an image that represents hope on their pages. I chose this photograph of my two children on the day our youngest came home from Hospital after a very rocky 5 weeks spread across the NICU and SBCU. To me it represents so much hope for the future; the beginning of their friendship, the beginning of life as a 'normal' family of four and the hope that my little man would grow and develop as he should - leaving no sign that he had endured an incredibly difficult fight at the very start of his life.

World Vision is the world's largest international children's charity and a wonderful organisation that brings "real hope to millions of children in the world's hardest places."

This Summer they are marking the 30th anniversary of the 1984 Ethiopian Famine, the worst in living memory, with the #GrowHope campaign. They aim to grow and share hope with children and their families around the world and they have been hosting festivals and garden shows across the UK throughout the Summer. For every person that joins in, World Vision are donating orange maize seeds for farming to vulnerable families in Zambia, on top of all the other fantastic support work they already provide. Their aim to to ensure that children across the world live free from the fear of hunger.

Disclaimer : I was asked by World Vision to share an image that I felt depicted hope. I received no payment to do so and wasn't asked to share information about the campaign. All words are my own.
