Alfie Evans' parents: Welcoming our newborn son Thomas
At first it wasn’t so joyful as we were scared. And scared that I’d resent the baby because he’s not Alfie. But it’s not like that at all, he’s amazing, and a double of Alfie...
It was a story that captured the hearts of the nation, as the parents of Alfie Evans fought for the right to keep their son alive. Tom Evans and Kate James were told that their seven month old was being placed on life support, where he remained for the next 16 months. After a lengthy legal battle, Alfie’s life support was turned off in April this year.
Tom and Kate join us today to talk heartbreak, healing and how welcoming a new life in baby Thomas James has brought the family back together again.
