With them on their big day was their daughter, Summer Amelia. Born in January of 2012, Summer had blonde hair and blue eyes by the time her parents wed. She wore a frilly, white dress, too, just like her mom.
But the Brittle family was still incomplete, even with wedding vows made and a daughter shared between them. Sadie, a hairdresser, and Gary, a builder, wanted another child, but didn’t put any pressure on themselves to have one. “We were trying for a baby at the time,” Gary told the Daily Mail. “But it was more a case of when it happens, it happens.”
So, when this drama started in early 2016, the Brittles were presumably thrilled to find out that they were finally expecting another child, three years after their wedding. But all would not go smoothly this time around. One day in April, eight weeks into their pregnancy, Sadie’s health took a rapid and dangerous turn.
