Two Kisses for Maddy

Two Kisses for Maddy was officially released today. It is Matt Logelin’s heartbreaking/heartwarming memoir of loss and love. Matt and his wife Liz (my best friend‘s infectiously sweet cousin) were blessed with the arrival of their beautiful daughter Madeline in the spring of 2008. 27 hours later, without ever holding Maddy, Liz died suddenly of a pulmonary embolism. In the devastation that followed, Matt turned to blogging — sharing his grief, his incomparable love for Liz and his adventures as a new father.

If you can handle some (lots) of tears in return for a strong dose of inspiration and life lessons, I highly recommend the book. I am about halfway through, only because I wanted to save some for when I am on the couch the next couple days.

Also, check out the Liz Logelin Foundation established in her name — giving hope to widows and widowers with young families.
