The Primavera Story

Hello! Thank you for visiting my March for Babies page.

The Primavera Family Team has been walking in the March for Babies since 2006, when our little ones were a year old. Last year, our family was honored to be the 2013 Ambassador Family for the March for Babies walk in Fairfield, CT.

The March for Babies is a walk that raises money for the March of Dimes - a cause near and dear to my heart. Here's our story:

Why do I walk?

Because my babies were born 14 weeks early due to my developing preeclampsia, a condition that can only be "treated" by delivering the babies.

Because I delivered three babies, but am raising only two, and because Avnish and Keshavan's triplet sister is missed every day.

Because my three babies weighed a combined total of 4 1/2 lbs at birth.

Because my boys were asked to fight the kind of fight that no baby should be asked to - the fight to survive.

Because we could have experienced the heartbreak of loss more than once, but it was because of the talented NICU staff, strength of our babies, and also results of research funded by the March of Dimes, that our babies pulled through.

And because after 14 weeks and 19 weeks in the NICU, we brought home our amazing little babies, who have grown into two amazing little boys. Because they make me smile by just being, and make my heart swell with pride every day.

I walk because no baby, no mother, no father, no family should have to experience the type of rollercoaster ride that we did for much of 2005. I walk because I am in awe of my boys, and how far they have come on a road they never should have had to travel.

I walk in honor of my little girl - not a day goes by that I don't think about her. I walk for and with her brothers, who carry her spirit in them. And I walk to save babies.

The March of Dimes champions the needs of moms and babies in our community and across the nation. The money we raise for March for Babies will support lifesaving research, services, education and advocacy that help babies get a healthy start.

Please help by donating today - or better yet - join our team!

Thank you so much!

Karina.

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

Your gift will support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And it will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.
