Gone Purple for Maddie

As you may have heard through the grapevine of the internet about a very sad story about a little girl, Madeline Alice Spohr, just 17 months old passed away on April 7th.  Maddie was born premature and had many complications with her health as many babies born premature do.  This story really hit home for me.  Also having a daughter about Maddie's age with many health complications, therapies, hospital stays.  Like me and so many of us, Maddie's mom, Heather, is an avid blogger and twitterer.  

I did not personally know Heather, but I cannot even begin to imagine the emptiness they must feel loosing their beautiful daughter.  No one should have to suffer the loss of a child.

In honor of Madeline and a fellow mom blogger/twitterer, I ask you to donate what you can to the March of Dimes.  Please use the following link.

i can't imagine losing a child, that has to be the most devastating, painful thing. Condolences to her family. She looks like a beautiful child.
