Parents Who Lost Three Children In MH17 Welcome Baby Girl

The parents who lost their three children in the downing of flight MH17 over the Ukraine almost two years ago, have welcomed a new baby girl. 

Violet May Maslin was born on Tuesday to Perth's Anthony Maslin and Marite Norris. 

Mo's 14th birthday would've been May 7, Evie would've been 12 next week and Otis would have turned 10 next month. 

Their grandfather, Nick Norris, who they were travelling with, was also killed. 

In a statement released on Thursday, Anthony and Marite said "Violet's birth is a testament to our belief that love is stronger than hate. We still live with pain, but Violet, and the knowledge that all four kids are with us always brings light to our darkness." 

All 298 people on board the Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 on July 17th, 2014 were killed, including 38 Australian residents and citizens. 

"We will continue to love all four of our children equally. Violet brings some hope and joy for us. We hope she brings hope and joy for you too," the statement read.
