Since Heather and Mike have been without their beautiful sweet Madeline.

Six months. One half of a year.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of Maddie, her parents, and her soon to be baby sister, Binky. I never truly knew the Spohrs.

I'm a stranger-friend to be exact.

But this story, this family, this precious little girl touched my heart and changed my life. It sounds extreme doesn't it? It's not. Go to their story, see the beautiful photos.

It's different. It's heartbreaking, and heartwarming all the same.

I cannot begin to imagine what all the Spohrs are going through. I know they are strong people. I know that everyday is a struggle; be it good or bad.

I know that I miss her for them. I never even met her.

Go to Friends of Maddie to support babies and families in need.


  1. I feel the same way. I have never mehem either but Maddie has changed my life. I wrote a post too. And I'm thinking that people are wondering why I'm writing about a little have... And I don't think they will truly understand unlessook at her videos, pictures, and heathers posts on her blog.

  2. Thank you Rylee. it means so much to me. xoxo
