One week ago Jennie from Edspire was going through the worst moment anyone could ever imagine. On going to bed she found her little Matilda Mae just 9 months old had crawled in under her bedding and from that moment nothing would be the same again.
I read Jennie’s tweet on Sunday and I honestly went into shock. I read it and reread and showed it to MrR but it never changed. In the week since my thoughts have constantly turned to Jennie and her family and to gorgeous Matilda Mae who was smiling in every photo.
I ‘Met’ Jennie online not long after I got into twitter and we talked about premature babies and successful pregnancies after having a premmie. When Jennie got pregnant with her miracle baby we often talked about having small goals and steps to make sure that the pressure of pregnancy didn’t get too much.
I was very lucky to meet Jennie for real at Britmums last year, I also got the chance to get cuddles with the tiny and absolutely beautiful Matilda Mae. I didn’t want to give her up and said that at the time. Jennie had Matilda Mae in a sling and she looked so happy looking down and talking to her when she was awake.
I haven’t been on twitter much recently so missed a lot of Jennie’s tweets but when I read the tweet last Sunday my heart immediately went out to the family. Nothing I can every say will take away their pain and sadness but the combined power in twitter and facebook that has all turned towards this family will mean there will never be a question or tweet that goes unanswered. Day or night someone is there remembering Matlida Mae and holding her family close in their hearts.
Sending kisses on the wind Matilda Mae
