Letters for Matilda Mae

Letters to Matilda Mae

This week begins a countdown.

One year.

One little life.

One family, destroyed.

One community, stunned.

One heart that stopped beating.

One more baby added to the list of senseless deaths; life at it’s cruellest.

On February 2nd 2014 it will be one year since Matilda Mae went to sleep and did not wake up. I would like you to read Jennie’s letter to her baby: Dear Matilda, the night we found you sleeping. And, with Jennie’s blessing, I would like you write a letter to Matilda Mae too. I know that this little life has touched so many and I know that so many of us want to let Jennie know that she will never be forgotten.

Please link up your posts here so that Jennie can read them in her own time. Please also use the #MatildaMae hashtag if you are on Twitter. Thank you x

    So many beautiful letters, so many lovely words of kindness. I’m sure Matilda Mae is looking down from Heaven right now with a big smile knowing how much so many people cared for her and her family! xxx

    I cannot write as I have no words.
    All I can do is send my love and best wishes to Jennie and her family.

    I have followed Jennie and her family’s story. I find her such a courageous and inspiring woman. I can’t even bear to think about what they must be going through – I can only guess.
    I am not sure if I have a letter in me. But from time to time, I hold them all in my thoughts, and that beautiful baby girl who is one of the brightest stars in the sky xxxxxxxx
