two kisses for maddy: a book review

One of my blogging inspirations is Matt Logelin, now I have written about him several times before but I am writing today to talk about his book.  For you that don’t know the backstory Matt become a single parent suddenly a mere 27 hours after the birth of his first child with his wife Liz. Liz had been on bed rest and was getting up to go see her daughter Madeline for the first time, she collapsed suddenly and was gone.

Matt who had dabbled in blogging years earlier re-entered the blog world as a tool to keep family and friends from out of state updated on their ever growing and evolving family: after liz’s passing the focus of the blog changed to life of a single dad dealing with his self-proclaimed limited knowledge of babies and of course the obvious grief.

The book is written in a slightly different voice then the blog but none the less refreshing okay and gut wrenching at times too. But as much as I recommend this book if you can’t get past the frequent use of the f-bomb then  this is NOT the book for you!The book and blog alike share Matt’s journey as a single parent sometimes wishing he had also read all the parenting books that Liz had.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
