Madeline Alice Spohr November 11, 2007-April 7, 2009

madeline We lost one of our LA Moms Blog babies.  Today I am attending Maddie's funeral.  Wearing purple, her favorite color.  I don't even know what to type here.  I met Maddie for the first time about three weeks ago.  I was totally smitten with her.  Such a cutie pie!  She was crashed out when I arrived and I couldn't take my eyes off her.  The best eyebrows I've ever seen on a baby!  She lit up the room when she woke up.  I told her mom, Heather, that we needed to get Maddie and Lulu together for a playdate--they are so close in age!  Yes, yes, she agreed.  I'm heartbroken.  I can't believe I'm heading to her funeral.  I'm not even able to breathe normally.  My head is spinning.  I will be there to throw whatever support I can at everyone who needs it and to say goodbye to that little cutie pie.

Please visit Heather's website to see how much Maddie was loved: Remembering Maddie

On April 25, we will walk for Maddie at the March of Dimes Walk, please consider making a donation in support of Maddie and all the preemie babies born everyday.  You can find the donation info on Heather's site above.

I got goosebumps all over reading about the untimely death of baby Maddie... But out of this tragedy brings such hope through all the money that was raised and awareness on prematurity. I'll be donating in her name tonight. That smile... Makes me want to cry and hug my babies a little tighter, ya know?

Love always,
Heather
