I am so inspired by the people I have found in the Twitterverse and the Blogosphere. Everyone has a story to tell and they all do the March for Babies for their own reasons. I shared my reasons here.
I was surprised by the number of people. They were of all kinds, young and old, all sizes, shapes and colors. All walking for their own reason's. There were kids in strollers.
And we walked and I cried. You couldn't see my tears because of the rain, but I cried. I cried because there were so many people walking because they know a baby that was born too soon or with issues and I hate it. It makes me so sad. Mom's and Dad's and babies and sister's and brother's and Grandma's and Grandpa's and Auntie's and Uncle's should never have to go through dealing with what Heather Spohr and Paula Hoitink are going through.
When I decided that we should create a March for Maddie and Jack team, I set a goal of only $250. I know it's not much but I know that every little bit helps. Well, we raised $330 for the March of Dimes!!!! I was very excited we were able to exceed our goal.
It was a rainy dreary day, but it was a good walk.
And we also had fun splashing in the rain!
