As graduation loomed, the pair faced a hurdle: Matt stayed at the University of Minnesota, while Liz moved to California for her studies. Though physically apart, their emotional connection remained unbreakable. Matt eventually chose love over academics, relocating to Los Angeles in 2005, after completing his Master’s from Loyola University of Chicago.

“Their love was the kind that stories and legends are made of. A love that survived distance, embraced life, and celebrated each moment.”

The Joy and Challenge of Expecting a Child

Thrilled to expand their family, they were ecstatic when Liz became pregnant in 2007. Keeping their Minnesota-based family updated, they began a blog chronicling Liz’s pregnancy journey. While a difficult pregnancy forced Liz to take bed rest, the couple’s spirits remained high, buoyed by the promise of their future child.

In the face of unimaginable grief, it was the echo of Liz’s love in their daughter that gave Matt the strength to keep going.”

Matt took to community parenting forums for support and guidance. As the years passed, he shielded Madeline from public scrutiny while keeping Liz’s memory alive for her through stories and photographs.
