My husband and I are in a place were we are ready to start sharing our story more. We had told our MOD chapter that we wanted to start speaking to people if they ever needed anyone. Well this past week they asked if we would come and speak to a local company that is one of our chapters big corporate sponsors. We all went me, my husband, and my son. ( really I think they just wanted Colin there we were just part of the package.) We put our team shirt on Colin and he was going to be the one that spoke about why our name is, Team Popcorn and then share about the fundraisers our team does. We had to presentations to do to two different groups. Each group was about 50 people. Mike shared Scott's story, I shared how we found the MOD and how it has helped our family heal and begin celebrating Scott and then Colin took stage...=) I was proud of us all for standing up and sharing Scott's story and a piece of our life with strangers. I was really proud of Colin who is only 6 speaking and doing such a good job. It felt good and we left there feeling like we had done something good and honored our son. We can't wait to be able to do it again. Life may have turned upside down on us but we are doing our darn best to try and honor Scott and share him with people to help other families.
Nicki - what a beautiful way to honor Scott. I know it must be hard to share your story in front of such a big group, but I am sure you touched many people there (as you do here all the time). I love that Colin spoke too!
It makes me smile to think of Collin taking the stage. He has such a love for his brother. Im glad you all are finding a way to honor Scott and Share your story to help others. Sometimes it is not easy and it is always forth it to know that you are spreading awareness!
You guys are awesome for getting out there and sharing your story and your Scott. Love that each of you spoke and Colin too. What a sweetheart and grooming for a future career, a true leader! It takes a lot of strength to get out there and do that. It's helping so many families and the community to understand the need and all of the good work that MOD does. Way to go Team Popcorn!
How awesome that you are at a place to start sharing your story. Sharing to me from the beginning has been the best therapy. And such a great way to connect with others in similar situations. I have to ask about Team Popcorn?
I love that your entire family is sharing Scott's story. When we served as the Pittsburgh Ambassador Family a few years ago, I was very hesitant at first sharing with so many people. But then I realized that not only am I honoring my sons, but I am also creating broad awareness that positive outcomes don't always accompany pregnancy. I know all of you spoke with such love, and people will remember Scott's story for many, many years to come.
What a powerful and beautiful way to share Scott's story. Thank you for sharing Scott's story with all of us and for now sharing it with the public in support of the March of Dimes mission. I have no doubt that he is proud of you and Mike and especially his big brother Colin.
Wow! That is so incredibly great how you are honoring Scott and helping others! That is also awesome that Colin went up and shared the story as well!
