Why we walk?
10 years ago, we were blessed with twins. A boy, Henry and a girl, Grace.
However, on February 12, 2004, I went into preterm labor at 22 and a half weeks. They were born on Feb. 13. Henry was still born and Grace lived for about an hour. I never got to hold her while she was alive.
March of Dimes is working to help prevent this from happening to other families.
Later that year, we were blessed with a little girl, Jessica Elizabeth. She was 4 weeks early, and is now 9 years old!
We also have a 7 year old, Abbie Grace. They are such a joy and a blessing from God!
These children are why we walk. They are also why I am asking for your support and donation.
Your Donation will help:
- support all-important research offering preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects
- educate women on things they can do to increase their chances of having a healthy baby
- provide comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care
- push for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children
