Riley Robert Holden’s Story

In loving memory of Riley Robert Holden – born with angel wings.

Riley Robert Holden was born on 27th Dec 2011 and sadly passed away 29th Dec 2011. He was born 6 weeks early, 28 inches and weighed 7lb 12oz, so definitely didn’t look like a prem baby.

Riley was the most beautiful baby boy but was just too poorly, he fought for 39 hours. The best thing I can possibly drag out of it was that my little boy knew my voice, and even though he didn’t respond to the midwives, when I went to see him, he opened his eyes to look at me and squeezed my finger. My baby boy knew I was there with him.

The amazing work, time and effort the staff at the RVI put in to keep Riley alive was unbelievable, and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for giving me 2 days with my little man.
