Madeline Alice Spohr

Who is...

Blogging is one thing. Creating friendships, making memories, and sharing stories is another. That's what WE Mommies do. We touch each other in ways that often go unspoken. We browse countless pages of a person's blog in hopes to connect with at least one element of their beautifully-written prose. And when we do, we are forever hooked. This was the case when I discovered THE SPOHRS ARE MULTIPLYING (now

I felt an instant connection to little Maddie. She was captivating and delightful. I discovered all this just by looking at her pictures. Her spirit was so evident on the blog. Whether it be the way her parents described their triumph over her premature birth, or the oodles of pictures taken of Madeline's every moment, it was apparent she was an angel.

Now, the Spohr's need your love more than ever. Madeline passed away yesterday. It is painful to even write the words, or even speak them. Please say a prayer for the family and those who are connected in any way.
