I love to read other people's blogs too. Sometimes I just hop around to different blogs for a quick peek, and other times I follow faithfully. I've found many inspiring blogs, blogs by other moms with kid(s) the same age as mine, etc.
Well today I stumbled across the blog of a fellow mommy blogger. I immediately felt we had a lot in common, as I read how she descibed her 4 month old baby girl as a diva who loved pink and BIG bows and hair accessories (sound like anyone else? :-) However, I was devastated to read that today she is burying her 4 month old baby girl, who died suddenly when she stopped breathing at the babysitters. It hasn't been specifically stated, but it sounds like SIDS to me. My heart broke for this mom. (You can read Maddie's blog here: http://kandjstaats.blogspot.com/ )
Baby Maddie's mom asked on her blog that people have their little girls wear big bows today in honor of her baby girl. This request has spread like wildfire online today and hundreds of people have commented on her blog. Of course I decided to have my girls participate....so here's to baby Maddie!
I'm not a religious/praying person, but I wish that Maddie's family can find some peace and I hope it's something that I never have to experience myself. As a mom myself I can't imagine losing one of my baby girls. ....and I think it's great that in the age of the internet a Mama who's struggling can get support from 100's of people all over the country and create such a special remembrance in honor of her daughter.
