Madonna Badger, who lost her three daughters and both parents in the tragic Christmas Day 2011 fire in Stamford, is reportedly spending the holiday in the "Santa Claus-free zone" of Thailand.
In an interview Thursday on NBC's "Today" show, Badger tells Matt Lauer she is "doing really well” as the one year anniversary of the horrific event approaches.
In her second interview with Lauer since the tragedy, Badger said she plans to spend the holiday working "in an orphanage there with young girls who’ve lost their families, little girls, and bring toys from my garage that belonged to my children.”
Badger told Lauer she believes her three daughters — 9-year-old Lily and 7-year-old twins Grace and Sarah — have sent her mystic messages from beyond the grave. She said she sees them in her dreams and when she prays.
“Lily came to me very early on and said, ‘Don’t worry, Mommy, I’m right there in your heart and I love you,’” Badger, whose ex-husband Matthew is also grieving their loss, told Lauer.
