I have been in tears all morning reading this brave man’s story. I had to share this with all of my blog readers and friends out there (this shows the power of the internet). Matt and Liz were like any happy couple expecting their first child, Madeline was born, and the very next day Liz had an embolism and died tragically. Now Matt is alone, a grieving new Father and he has shared his most intimate thoughts of fear, anger, joy, love and every possible emotion with the world. The outpouring of love and support from strangers has been incredible. I think Matt’s story has had a real impact on people, and reminds all of us to hold on tight to those we love and to enjoy and appreciate every moment. On a side note, Matt has a treasure full of pictures of Liz to be able to share with Madeline someday so she will get a real feeling for who her Mommy was, for me this again reinforces how important photos can be, and I don’t feel quite so guilty that my kids have been growing up with a camera lens staring at them every waking and sleeping moment.
