Reece brings a smile to my face everyday when I see how far he has come from his diagnosis.

His thoughtfulness and kindness makes me smile knowing I have raised a lovely young man.

My son brings a smile to my face everyday for simply just being him. My proudest moments have been when he has become National champions twice with his street dance crew, defending their title again in march 2014, if they win they could be European champions, with everything our kids go through and to achieve this makes me super proud and brings a tear to my eye every time, love ya son x

When you first get the diagnosis your thoughts can't get beyond that day, the next procedure, the next clinic. Now 4 years on he's enjoying school and living life to the maximum. When he cycled off on his own for the first time it was one of my proudest moments. His happy smile and exuberance brighten every day x

There are many things that my little one do, which makes me feel proud and makes me smile.but one thing which makes me say wow is his memory power.he is 2 1/2 yrs and he can easily recollect things even from his 11 month.

I've just noticed that since Bertie's nurse emailed to say he's being changed from weekly to six weekly blood tests a great big bit of my mind has been liberated! Last summer he couldn't walk to school because he was too tired but now he can walk all day, retracing his steps to do huge splashes in muddy puddles with his brother. And he told me recently, "I love you so much, Mummy. I love you all day!" Awwwww!

My son is a lot more reserved than his twin sister, he finds it harder to make friends, but when he started secondary school he decided to go off to the school's tech club all on his own, without knowing anyone there. Three years on he still loves it, he helps with all the lighting and sound for the assembly's, plays etc and is often there late in the evening and over weekends helping out.

Last year he went to Tacker's (ski camps for transplanted children). It was his first time abroad, first time on a plane, first time away from us for his birthday, and again, all with people he'd never met! He had an absolutely amazing time and on the way home from the airport didn't stop talking about his week. He also said that he'd talked to a couple of the younger boys about problems with bullying and how he'd coped with it himself, and tried to advise them on what to do. I was bursting with pride, that he'd taken such a brave step to go in the first place, had such a brilliant time, and that he'd been trying to help others :)

Looking back on how small and delicate my little girl was and seeing the things she had to go through and looking at her now .

She fills me with pride and I smile from cheek to cheek . I thought due to being in hospitals a lot she would find it hard to make friends but far from it. Sitting in our shopping trolly she happily waves to the rest of the shoppers making chit chat with people on our stops round. Her speech is beautiful and i believe this is due to all our many mummy and daughter chats about how raa raa the lion is noisy and whats noddy doing now ?,sitting in our hospital room and she shows so much care and concern with her friends at nursery. When people who know her or have just learnt her story say to me " blimey you wouldn't know it to look at her" I feel my mouth and cheeks rise as I reply " I know" :)

When you learn your child is very unwell you enter the most horrendous roller coaster and never think that things will get better. I am very happy to say that things have got better and our brave soldier battles through everything without a care in the world. He plays football for his local team (through rain or shine, though not much shine recently!), has enrolled in Beavers, plays golf. Nothing will stop him now. Going through what he has done has made him a stronger character and a loving and happy little boy. My little hero x

My son can be a little shy and reserved and reluctant to try new things. I am so proud that he is really moving outside of his comfort zone to go on the CLDF Talk Tell Transform project. It's a reallybig thing for him - some of the photos and video we have compiled for his presentation have really made me smile!

Six months ago today Bertie was waking up after his transplant surgery. Now the school run has taken on a very literal meaning- I have to jog to keep up with Bertie on his scooter now and he's renamed himself "Mr Fast". At the weekend we went to the swimming pool where he splashed around with his brother for 2 hours, and yesterday he told me he wanted to try the gymnastics club at school. These are things I hadn't dared to dream of since his biliary atresia diagnosis. That's one truly transformed life!

My daughter with pfic 2, no transplant yet who is 4, was caught smashing her 8 year old brother over the head with a frying pan from her play kitchen just before bed! Whilst I obviously told her off, I was secretly so happy that she is not only alive to do it (we nearly lost her at 3 months old) but that she has the energy to! She started school in September, loves every minute and has been invited to eat her lunch on the 'golden table' tomorrow with the head.... if only they knew!!! Claire

Bertie came home from school with a huge gold sticker on his jumper. This was his Head Teacher's award for getting 3 smileys, working hard in class and finishing all his work. So proud!

He took to it brilliantly and after his first full day the nursery nurse said "you'd never know it was his first day!!" SO proud & it made me going to work easier too!! xx
