    Hey whānau thank you so much to those who have donated already and will donate from here on out.

    Autumn still remains in Burwood Hospital, Christchurch. She is learning how to use her wheelchair and currently doing physio and gym daily. We are hoping we can get her babies to her soon!

    We can’t even begin to express how proud we are of Autumn for the resilience she shows during this time ❤️

    Lijah has been moved from Wellington Hospital back to Hastings Hospital. The most recent update we have had is Elijah has been moved from the intensive care unit to his own ward. He’s making a lot of progress! He is eating puréed food and thickened liquids and like Autumn, undergoing Physio treatment.

    He can now sit himself up, wriggling to the edge of his bed and standing up with some support.

    We are so proud of Lijah. “Making small steps and big gains” says his dad Shaun Watene.

    Please continue to share the give a little link near and far. And donate when and what you can.

    Everything goes the longest way! And we appreciate every single one of you who have supported these two and their journey.

    Kia Ora Whānau.

    We appreciate the support from all of those who have shared this link or made a donation.

    Big or small it all makes a difference and we as a whānau would love to thank you for that.

    Our Lij still remains in Wellington and although the steps that have been made by him so far in his recovery journey are small, they’re still steps and we are counting our blessings having him still here with us.

    Our Lil still remains in Burwood hospital Christchurch. Our beautiful sister is paralysed from the waist down and has 3 babies 5 and under. She is making improvements also.

    Our Lij and our Lil are very important people to us.

    And also their whānau who are by their side.

    As you can imagine we have had a very tough week laying our beautiful Harmony to rest and has been hard for us to be by Autumn and Elijah’s side.

    However this page has been an amazing start in supporting them from afar for us.

    They have amazing whānau with them right now and we look at helping them during this hard time with the donations made on this page.

    So from our hearts to yours,

    We appreciate you so so much!
