How do I even begin to explain the reason our family participates in March For Babies.
I was born premature 34 years ago. I am the mom of three kids, all of who were born premature. One of my babies I never got to bring home. She was too small and to sick to survive her early arrival. My boys a 34 weeker and a 32 weeker are here today thanks the March of Dimes and their research in surfactant therapy.
We choose to do our first walk just 6 months after saying goodbye to our daughter. We needed something the help create her legacy. To give everything we had been through a purpose. My thoughts were if we walk, raise money, raise awareness and it spares one family from the same challenges we have had to face, well then it has all be worth it. Now we are embarking on our 11th walk season.
Through the years we have grown to know many families that have been mission impacted. Many of these families have now become my family. Each has a story.
A few years ago we started adding names to our shirts. Families that have faced prematurity, birth defects, and loss. We also celebrate the full term siblings and rainbows (a baby born after a loss).
This year our walk theme is Hope, Remember, and Celebrate. So we will walk for each of the kids listed on our shirts.
We will walk for Hope.
We will walk to Remember.
We will walk to Celebrate.

We are also trying to get donations from every state!
You have made such a difference for others over these 11 years! What a beautiful way to honor your sweet Trinity and to celebrate your amazing boys.
Thank you so much for being such an inspiration to us all and for never forgetting any of our babies when you walk!
