A Little Girl Named Madeline

Last week the "mommy blogging" world was shaken by the death of 17 month old Madeline. See I read mom blogs everyday and many of the blogs that I read wrote about Madeline, her parents and the emotions they felt about this little girl. I read more blog posts and through them got to know a little bit about this little girl and her family. I watched videos and read stories and cried and cried and cried. I cried for Heather, Madeline's mom because just the thought of losing Sophia makes my throat close and makes me cry. I do not know how Joey and I would ever be able to pick ourselves up and go on. The Phi is our whole entire world. Just like Madeline was Heather and Mike's world.

I find myself lately hugging The Phi longer and more often and just studying her face. I find that I have more patience with her mood swings and realizing more than ever that Sophia is a gift. Being her Mom and Dad is an honor and Joey and I are blessed to have her.


Rest In Peace Little Madeline. You have touched so many people. You have made be a better Momma to my daughter and I thank you so much for that.

  1. Ask me how much I cry my eyes out every time I go to that Spohrs site? OMG. Rips my heart out every time. But thank you for sharing their story, as much as it pains me to read it, it is bittersweet life. I don't know how she functions.
