Charlie Gard's mother Connie Yates shares her real life story:
The midwife placed a tiny bundle into my arms and I gazed down at my baby boy, Charlie. Just like that, I understood it - it was love at first sight.
Charlie was my first child with my partner, Chris. And he was absolutely perfect.
It now seemed crazy to think that at one point I hadn't wanted kids.
We took Charlie home and settled into family life, sharing nappy changes and night feeds.
"He smiled for the first time today!" I told Chris excitedly when he came home from work one night.
But at eight weeks old, Charlie began to refuse his breastfeeds, which meant he started to drop in weight.
