22 Kids And Counting: Noel and Sue remember their son Alfie
Sue Radford has slammed cruel trolls who felt the need to criticise an emotional remembrance message for her son Alfie that she posted for the Radford Family’s 517,000 Instagram followers.
Last Sunday the 22 Kids and Counting matriarch and husband Noel shared a heartbreaking post about her 17th child who was stillborn in 2014.
However, while the family received a wave of sympathetic and empathic messages one follower stood out for all the wrong reasons. The user commented beneath the post: “Again?? What’s the occasion? No content?” (sic)
This led Sue to respond by copying the comment to her stories and writing on it: “People like this are really mentally not ok they must have such incredibly sad life and for that I feel sorry for you.” (sic)
She added: “I will never stop talking about Alfie he is our son who is loved and missed always.”

The couple have vowed to keep Alfie’s memory alive and Sue even has a tattoo of his tiny footprints on her hand and feet in his honour.
The original post was to mark the end of Baby Loss Awareness Week which ran from October 9 to 15 this year.
The moving message featured a series of photos of their baby son’s hand, with another showing candles lit to spell out his name and a third picture with gifts and flowers laid beside his grave.
Captioning the post Sue wrote: “Wave of light 2023. Forever our missing heartbeat Alfie Thomas Radford,” accompanied by an angel emoji.
The loss of Alfie came just a year after Sue had suffered a miscarriage in September 2013.

She has previously opened up about her grief over losing Alfie, saying “it never gets easier”.
In an episode of the family’s Channel 5 show in March both she and Noel broke down as the family visited his grave.
Noel said: “It’s definitely something we talk about and the kids come with us to see his grave and things like that. So even the ones that weren’t born, they understand who Alfie is. To be honest, I think this is one of the biggest things that has impacted our family.”
Sue has also opened up about feeling “quite bad” for taking her healthy pregnancies for granted, adding that stillbirths “should definitely be spoken about a lot more”.
