not sure if any of you know about Matt Logelin’s blog. can’t recall if i’ve written about it here before. he appeared on Oprah a while back and he wrote a book based on his blog and his experiences. which are, in short: after a tough pregnancy and an emergency C-section, his beloved wife (and high school sweetheart), Liz, died one day after their daughter was born from a pulmonary embolism.
Matt is an awesome dad now (or seems to be—of course i don’t know him) and has raised a ton of money to help other newly/unexpectedly single parents. he even found love again with a woman who volunteered for the foundation he created. but the heartache continues, because his daughter, Maddy, will never know her mom. Matt does everything he can to keep Liz’s memory alive, but of course it’s not even close to the same.
anyway, Matt doesn’t update his blog nearly as often as he used to a couple years ago, but his posts almost always move me. this one, posted last week, might be my favorite ever. partly because it involves baseball, partly because i think if my husband were in the same position, he’d be exactly like Matt, and partly because i think there are a lot of parents out there who don’t care enough, so i always love reading about those who do.
