After volunteering for the March of Dimes for 2 years, in 2013 when we found out we were expecting our 3rd child. A normal pregnancy ended on May 8, 2013 when we delivered Gabriel Michael silently; he suffered an unbilical cord accident in utero. Shaun and I had 4 hours to hold our sweet baby boy and say our hellos and goodbyes. I never imagined something like this would happen to our family. The reality is, it can happen to ANY family. This is why we raise money for the March of Dimes every year; so other families don't have to say goodbye to their babies. We raise money so Gabriel's name can live on. We raise money so our healthy children: Leah, JJ and Nicholas, will always remember the brother they never met. We raise money so every baby can have a fighting chance. Please take a moment and donate to our team, donate for Gabriel, donate for Leah, JJ and Nicholas, or donate for a baby in your life. I have created a few donation amounts that have special meaning to our family, you may choose one of those or donate any amount that works for you. $58- Gabriel was delivered on 5/8; $140- Sara Carried Gabriel for 140 days before she had to say hello and goodbye; $400- This year Gabriel would have turned 4 yrs old.
We walk because we said hello and goodbye to our son in 4 hours. We walk, because the world gets to know I am a mother to 4 children, not 3. Please walk with us.
