Today I received some bad news. A little girl whose smiling face I had come to know passed away.
Now I never met Maddie or her parents Heather and Mike in person. I only knew them through their wonderful blogs.
The funny thing about the impersonal internet is that it is not impersonal. You can meet wonderful, funny, smart people who are willing to give you a glimpse into their lives. You get to know them, to care about them. You laugh with their joys and you cry with their sorrows. And today my heart breaks for Mike and Heather.
If you can, please support the March of Dimes in Maddie's name so other families do not have to go through this tragedy.
