Maxie Leviss

Maxie was born on October 7, 2010.  We were so excited that he came a full month early.  From the beginning, Maxie was a complete love and joy.  He was the first grandchild for his mommy's parents and the second for his daddy's.  He was the apple of our eyes.  He made us happy every single day.  Maxie was an easy and happy baby.  He made parenting very easy and fun.  He smiled all of the time, was easy to travel and go places with.  He loved being read to.  His favorite book was Goodnight Moon - he knew the words so well that you could just whisper the words in his ears when he was upset and he would quiet right down.  Maxie loved yams, greek yogurt and bananas.  Maxie was a sweet soul.  He loved everyone and was loved by so many.  We miss him every minute and can hardly understand how it is possible that we lost our beautiful baby boy.  We are trying to make sense of life without him.  It is a struggle to live each day without our Maxie.

Hey there... I have been reading your blog for a little while now. I am an L&D nurse trying to learn how to better take care of parents who are suffering from a loss. I have learned so much from you and wanted you to know that I think of you often and pray for you to find peace. I wish people knew better what to say to you without causing you pain! You are in my prayers...

Hi there, I was introduced to your blog yesterday. I lost my beautiful little girl six months ago. Lizzie was 2 1/2. She was a perfect healthy little girl. I put her to bed and she never woke up. I have read some of your posts and they really hit home. It helps me to know that some day, it may be possible to feel really happy along with really sad. I know this emptiness and sadness will never go away. It can't because my Lizzie is no longer with me. But, I hope some day, I can learn to be happy and manage my sorrow at the same time. I wish you and your family many more good moments to come because you all deserve them. Thank you for sharing.
