News circulating tonight in the mom-blogsphere and twitter-land is sad. Beautiful, miraculous Maddie Spohr passed away suddenly today. Following her family’s account over at The Spohrs Are Multiplying I couldn’t help but be enchanted with her amazing eyes (second only to my grand daughter, Hazel’s) and her delightful smile. I identified completely with the trials, tribulations and amazing blessings of life with their preemie because we are living out own life with an amazing preemie. Tonight my heart is sad, so very sad for her family. Please stop by their blog and discover Maddie, if you haven’t already and definitely find it in your heart to make a donation in her memory to the March of Dimes. Not a day goes by where most families of preemies like Maddie and Daniel are reminded just how miraculous they are and how they still are so vulnerable even long after they leave the NICU to “live happily ever after”. Perhaps someday happily ever after will be a reality for micro-preemies and preemies like these rather than a wish, a prayer or a miracle.
