Three years ago today I was in Los Angeles with Addie at her house celebrating her daughter’s first birthday with cream puffs and swag toy guitars.

154 days later I was back in LA at her daughter’s funeral.

Today would have been Maddie’s fourth birthday.


Pretty cool day to have a birthday.

Her parents wrote a song and all proceeds from the purchase of the song will go to Friends of Maddie, a charity dedicated to make the life of NICU parents a little easier.

Heather and Maddie
I miss you Maddie. You were the first baby I ever loved through the Internet.

I love you Heather and Mike.

You have and amazing big sister Annie.


I went to elementary school with Amy, she’s having a brain tumor removed today. She has three little kids. Any spare love you have lying around sent in her general direction would be greatly appreciated.
