For Maddie


Madeline Alice Spohr
November 11, 2007 – April 7, 2009

There’s not much I can say that hasn’t been said already. Like so many others, I am heartbroken for the family of this beautiful little girl. I can only begin to imagine what they are going through right now. I watched my sister-in-law lose her son at 16, and I still see the pain my grandmother feels 60+ years after the death of her son. And I wish that no parent ever had to go through what the Spohrs are going through right now.

All I can really do to help is do something in memory of Maddie – something that will help prevent this from happening to other babies, other parents.

On March 9th, I will walk in memory of Maddie and in support of the March of Dimes. I know times are tough, but if you can help, a lot of people would appreciate it:

Forty-sdjhfkjsdhfkjsdh year old mom of 2 - a 18 year old boy and a 11 year old girl. I love them very much, but they drive me crazy. I'm married and work full-time. I'm not sure which of these is the most exhausting, but probably the husband. I'm opinionated. I'm outspoken. I'm loud. I'm an over-sharer. I think Tom Cruise is a jackass. I like to say jackass. I like to swear, period. Fuckers. I love to read. I struggle with my weight. I love my job. I dress my pets up and ridicule them regularly. I am not afraid to cut my hair and I don't understand people who are. I hate getting old. I love to laugh. Make me laugh, OK?
