Wordless Wednesday: For Maddie

Hug your children extra hard today, and be very, very glad that you can.

This sweet girl, daughter of blogger Heather Spohr, passed away yesterday.  The March of Dimes works towards healthy births and healthy babies.  Help them win the fight by making a donation in Maddie’s name.

Update:  Many, many people donated money in Maddie’s name, and many more have signed up to walk in her name for the March of Dimes.  Last I saw, over $25,000 had been given.  What a wonderful gesture.  Let’s hope it helps.

  1. What a beautiful baby! and a great cause. Happy WW.

  2. Touching post and so true. My son and daughter-in-law lost their first pregnancy at five months. They named her Kiley and we think of her often. They are due again this summer and we are all on edge knowing that things don’t always turn out the way you hope. Maddie has a sweet, sweet smile:)

  3. thanks for the reminder, condolences

  7. Heart-breaking to read about this. My condolences to Heather. I was reminded by something my cousin was telling me the other day. She has a friend whose nephew was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. The frustration is that the poor kid started vomiting since this year January and his parents did not bring him to see any doctor until March-April. From the diagnosis, the tumor of the 6 years old kid is found to be almost the size of an adult’s palm. I was SHOCKED when my cousin told me this. Which parents in the world would ever allow this to happen to their children. Like my sister, every time her kids has a slight cough or flu, she would immediately bring them to the doctor already. Now the poor kid is undergoing Chemo treatment in the hope that it can reduce the size of the tumor so that he can undergo an operation.
