My beautiful friend Heather
and her husband Mike lost their baby girl, Maddie tonight. I’m sick with grief. This is so unbelievable and unfair. I don’t know what to do.
I know you’re all trying to get on The Spohr’s website and it looks like it’s down but we’re working on getting that fixed. Her site can’t handle the amount of traffic it’s getting and there are a few of us trying to make it work.
This is just so devastating to all of us and so out of the blue. I will update when I have more news. For right now, as far as I know, she’s with her family and will probably see her closest friend today. I do know that she doesn’t want flowers but the family is happy to take donations to the March of Dimes in her daughter’s name Madeline Alice Spohr.
I met Heather when our babies both weighed 10 or 11 pounds and we struggled together to get them both to gain weight, egging each other on and trading tips and strategies. Maddie is an amazing little spirit, her eyes so beautiful and huge like saucers. I had the pleasure of watching her eat cake on her first birthday and I will always remember the look on her face as she went to town on that frosting. She was only a few ounces behind Sadie weight wise when this happened and I’d been rooting her for her to kick Sadie’s butt. This is just so fucking unfair.
The services are possibly scheduled for Tuesday here in Los Angeles and I will keep updating more details as I hear them third hand from Meghan.
If people want to donate to the fund Meghan
from A Mom Two Boys put up for expenses for Mike and Heather, they can go to Paypal.com and click “Send Money”
From there, they’ll enter:
firstname.lastname@example.org as the payee email address. Or you can visit Meghan’s site and do it from there.
