March Of Dimes

I had something else I was going to write today, but at the moment, nothing seems as important as remembering Maddie, James and Jake, Caitlin, Sophia and Lucas, and Sawyer all the little babies I have known either in real life or through the blog world who died from complications or premature birth.

Maddie went to heaven on this Tuesday, April 7th, at the tender age of 17 months and my heart is broken for her parents and family.

There are two places you can donate to help support March of Dimes teams that are online friends of mine:

For James and Jake For Maddie

You can find events here as well; since I don't know where we will be living (either in AL or NC, I can't sign up quite yet, but as it gets closer I will either be walking in the Spanish Fort, AL walk, or the Triangle Area, NC walk. I hope I get to see some of you there, and though I don't have much to donate, almost every penny goes to research and help for preventing death from premature birth. Find out more at the March of Dimes site: www.marchofdimes.com

I walked the March of Dimes twice. It was always a fantastic event. So sad for little Maddie. :( My son's birthday was the 7th. Such a happy day for us... such a sad day for that family. My heart goes out to them.

So sorry to hear about Maddie. :(

March of Dimes also helped Melissa and Dave out with Davis. They do charity for them all the time now.
