Why I march

Well... I hoped we would never march this march for Win, but here we are.

This year we'll march for our second NICU grad (and our first, too, of course). While we prayed and prayed we'd avoid the NICU and all the amazing March of Dimes resources this time around, we found ourselves there again in 2019. I won't lie, at the time, we were filled with anger and frustration. We didn't think Win needed to be admitted. And we definitely didn't want to go back there ourselves. Hands down, the most emotional moment of my life was watching my first NICU grad meet her brother for the first time... in the NICU.

His stay was short, but many babies do not get that same narrative (his own sister didn't), and some do not ever come home. 

We need to get to the bottom of this. We need babies to be born strong and moms to stay healthy. I don't know how to make that happen on my own, but I know of an organization who's more than qualified to do so as they're already working on it...

Please consider donating (and praying) to keep babies safe and provide the care they need to go home with their families.

This year our goal is $1500... that's $1000/day Win spent in the NICU (36 hours). Can you donate $15? Or even $150?
