The grieving mom, who lost all three of her daughters last year on Christmas Day during a tragic house fire, has traveled all over the world to find peace — but still hasn’t found it a year later.
Madonna Badger, 48, awoke on Christmas Day 2011 to a nightmare — her Connecticut house was on fire, and her three daughters were trapped inside. Even though she and her boyfriend Michael Borcina were able to escape the blaze, her elderly parents and daughters, Lily, 9, and twin daughters Grace and Sarah, both 7, all perished in the house fire.
A year later, Madonna traveled to Doi Saket, Thailand to try and find peace with the situation and escape all of the Christmas buzz that reminds her of her deceased family — but found it was much more difficult than she was expecting.
“It’s so hard right now,” she told the New York Post on Dec. 22. “Last night was the hardest yet. I cried and cried. I couldn’t stop crying.”
Madonna Planned To Visit Orphanage On Christmas Day
Madonna visited Breanna’s House of Joy orphanage in Doi Saket, an all-girls orphanage, just days before Christmas. She met the girls, ages 6 to 20, and painted with them and listened to them play music.
She planned to visit an all-girls orphanage on Christmas Day, the anniversary of her daughters’ deaths, and donate the toys and gifts she was planning on giving to her daughters — but she never made it.
“She said that when she . . . saw the children, she was overwhelmed and cried the entire day,” Frank Corso, Madonna’s lawyer, told the Post about his chat with the grieving mom on Christmas Day.
Can’t Escape Christmas In Thailand
Even though Madonna was staying at a holistic resort, and hoped for a more “low key” holiday season than what she would find in Connecticut, she was sadly mistaken
“I came here because I wanted a Santa-free zone,” she said. “But that hasn’t worked out so hot.
We hope Madonna finds peace after the tragedy. Our thoughts are with her and her family during this difficult time.
