For Matilda Mae

The UK parent blog community has been shattered by news of the death of Matilda Mae, the darling 9 month old daughter of Jennie and David at Edspire and sister of William and Esther.

There really aren't words. Nothing ever makes it better, nothing can stop such news bringing those of us who already know this pain to our knees. It's enough. It should stop. There should be some way to make it stop. All the babies who have gone before should be payment for the lives of the others.
Tonight I am thinking of Jennie and David and the path they must now walk. I am so sorry. I will be here to guide you if you want me, as I was guided by those who went before me.
Remembering your beautiful Matilda Mae. Fly high, little girl.
