Two Kisses for Maddie by Matthew Logelin
Short Version: LOVE!!!!!!!!
Long(er) Version: This book was so beautifully written; a mixture of angst, devastation, and love.
The first few chapters were taken straight from my journal – A story of a hard fought pregnancy filled with extreme morning sickness, months of bed rest, and fear of the unknown. I felt an instant connection with the story and couldn’t wait to read more. Throughout the rest of the book, the author focuses on his journey of grief and the inspiration of his beautiful daughter. He is a true testament of the importance of putting one foot in front of the other, even on days when it doesn’t seem possible. He truly embodied my “fake it until you make it” mentality to walking the steps of grief.
Whether you can relate to his grief journey on a personal level or simply relate to him as one human to another, I highly recommend this read.
