Prayers for 2 Blog Families

Tuesday, April 14, 2009 , Posted by Liz at 11:18 AM

The past couple of weeks I have learned of the loss of life of two infants. It is so sad, and my heart is hurting for both families. The Spohr Family live in California and lost their precious 17 month old daughter, Maddie (who was born prematurely). Then, this past weekend I learned of the Myers family and the loss of their four month old little boy, Thalon.

Both of these losses hit close to home, as they would for any mother. I am the Mother of a preemie, just as Heather Spohr, and I am preparing for my family March of Dimes Team, just as she has been for her family team. The overwhelming response from fellow Mom bloggers and supporters on the Internet have miraculously raised over $20,000 in memory of Maddie for her March of Dimes Team. This outpouring of love is awesome, and I have been amazed by all of those rallying around this family.


I am not totally familiar with all of the details of the death of Thalon, other than the fact that he had been ill. This family resides in Oklahoma, and just looking at the pictures of this sweet little baby boy brings tears to my eyes.

I have kept both of these families in my prayers, as they face the unfathomable, and I will continue to pray for them. I just wanted to express my sympathy for these two families, and remember how thankful I should be for everyday I have with my own children.
