She added, "I think having the time with her made such a difference. Being able to do so many of the things you imagine like taking her out in her pram, it really helped emotionally.
"I was really nervous about bringing her home because I didn’t know if it would feel right but it was so nice to have her there. And it wasn’t just for us but for Evlyn so she got to come home."
Their baby girl Evlyn was born on December 13 in Leeds, UK with an underdeveloped brain, narrow airways in her nose and lungs and a narrow aorta.
She lived for four weeks, battling against her ailments, but was unable to receive the heart surgery that she needed because she couldn't breathe on her own. She died on January 10.
After she passed away, she was kept in a refrigerated 'cuddle cot' for 12 days, and her parents could occasionally take her for walks. Four days before her funeral on January 26, the parents took her home and spent time with her in the park and in their house.
Charlotte is very grateful for her time with Evlyn, and while she misses her terribly, she knows that her baby girl is in a better place.
