Violet was born on Tuesday this week. Her parents said they believe they have been sent “an amazing gift”.
“Our family was torn apart when MH17 was blown out of the sky by the violent anger of a nationalist missile, on July 17, 2014,” the couple said in a statement to the Department of Foreign Affairs.
“Our three innocent, beautiful and inspiring children were killed, alongside their grandfather, Nick Norris. We believe that Mo, whose 14th birthday was Saturday, Evie, 12 next week, Otis, 10 next month, and Granddad Nick have sent us an amazing gift. Violet’s birth is a testament to our belief that love is stronger than hate.”
