Laughter used to fill our home. Our walls were falling down from all the noise.

Children are rarely quiet, but our Madeline? She was NEVER quiet.

Smiles used to brighten our lives. We couldn’t imagine things being any better.

Even with the possibility of our second child on the horizon, the extinguished light makes it hard to see.

Our happiness will always be tempered. We won’t ever be whole.

And we can’t be healed by the magic of her laugh.
