Our guest this week is Adam Birchmeier of Muskegon, MI who is a Business Sales Representative with Access Health and the father of daughter with Angelman Syndrome, who very sadly passed away in August, after a brief illness.
Adam and his wife, Nicole, have been married for 4 years and are the proud parents of Maddie who was born in June 2020, was diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome at 18 months and who, very sadly, passed away in August, shortly after her third birthday.
We also learn about Maddie’s Joy, the blog and podcast Adam created to reflect on the family’s Angelman Syndrome journey. Most touchingly, on the September 15, 2023 podcast, Adam read the eulogy he gave Maddie at her funeral.
While Maddie’s passing is very sad, Adam and Nicole find some solace in knowing that Maddie had (and continues to have) a positive impact in the lives of others, through Gift-Of-Life organ donation, and despite her short presence on this earth.
We’ll hear all about Maddie, her smile and how her infectious spirit lives on. That’s all on this Special Fathers Network Dad to Dad Podcast.
