rich emollient used in the management of eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions.


I’ve always promised myself not to write blog posts for the sake of it as I feel it will affect the integrity of what I do, however I am mindful that I haven’t written for a while and wanted to explain where I’m at…

Rosie hasn’t done a great deal to report of late and truth be told I’m just not feeling motivated enough at the moment for a number of different reasons.

I’ve done a few bits of media work lately which has been fantastic exposure and a tremendous platform for illustrating to more and more people how life with Rosie really isn’t all that different and certainly nothing to fear. However that has also eaten into valuable time for doing what I enjoy the most – being a Dad to my three wonderful children.

I’ve also read an increasing amount of Blogs, Facebook updates and twitter messages which have left me feeling a bit deflated and in some cases a tad disillusioned.

The next post may come tomorrow, it may not be until next month but I just wanted to keep you updated – I’m not going away just yet! But for now I simply want to enjoy some time with my family and regroup – a little rest and recuperation if you like.

‘Friday photo’ shall resume as usual for the time being over on The Future’s Rosie Facebook page.

Thank you as always for all of your continued support.

The Future's Rosie

I'm Tom, a thirty something father to three beautiful children and husband to my soulmate Karen. I started this blog as a means to talk about stuff, get things out in the open, a bit like an online therapy I guess and to celebrate the progress of my beautiful daughter Rosie who was born in March 2011 with Down's Syndrome (DS) and a Complete Atrioventricular Septal Defect (AVSD). Maybe the experiences shared on here will help others too, hopefully help illustrate the bright futures our children with DS will have if we can break down common misconceptions. When I first found out Rosie would be born with DS I found reading literature with open and honest feelings on the subject, extremely helpful. This is not intended to be a written masterpiece and I can promise you it won’t be. I don’t pretend to have a large vocabulary and to be honest the further behind me my school days become the more my grammar has deteriorated!... however, you will find what is written on these pages comes from the heart.
