On this episode, Brianna speaks with Ashley about the heartbreak she felt after losing Tripp, the importance of honoring her son and how she does it, and her story of finding Maddie's Footprints. Thank you for shining Tripp's light bright on this world, Brianna and Colby.

Provided by Maddie's Footprints, a non-profit organization in Louisiana that provides support to grieving families throughout Acadiana and Greater Baton Rouge. In Tripp's mom's words: What Maddie's Footprints Did For Me…. When we lost our son Tripp in 2016, Maddie’s Footprints stepped in immediately. We were so fortunate that we did not have to worry about funeral costs, thanks to Maddies. Little did I know how much MORE Maddies would help our family from that day forward….. I was honestly scared to become a part of Maddies. I didn’t want to be a part of this group of parents that also experienced my same nightmare of losing a child. But Maddies continued to reach out to me anyways…. just reminding me, “We Are Here When Your Ready.” 7 weeks after losing Tripp, I had hit rock bottom, and felt like I had no one else to turn to with the crazy feelings I had flowing through my mind… So that’s when I finally decided to reach out for help. I was welcomed by a group of moms, that shared my same nightmare, that instantly became some of my greatest blessings. I was hooked…. From the weekly support groups, to the middle of the night phone calls and texts, to the dinners out with other moms, and then to the amazing Maddies Events where I finally got to CELEBRATE My Angel Baby in a Fun, Memorable, and Peaceful way!!! Along with the thousands of other families who shared my same story, my same grief journey….. Throughout my first year with Maddies, I quickly realized the money and time that was constantly thrown into these support groups and events that was helping our families so much… And THAT is WHY we decided to begin the  2022 Angel T Black Pot Cook Off!!! Because without MADDIE’S FOOTPRINTS, I’m not sure I would have gotten thru some of my darkest days whole….. So, Our Journey of #givingforTripp is to not only keep his name alive…. But to also make sure that Maddie’s Footprints can continue to do for other families what they did for me!!!!
