March of Dimes Walk

After Lukas passed away, all I wanted was to hold my little boy. The pain is still indescribable. I wish there had been another page to that story. Since I don't have him here, I keep trying to find ways to keep his memory alive. It gets harder as the days go by because life continues on for everyone while at times I am stuck. And I just want to do something. I don't have a million dollars to donate to a charity in his name. But, I what I do have are two feet. So on April 25, 2010 I am going to walk in his honor for the March of Dimes. The walk is taking place on the lakefront of Chicago. Hopefully, God will bless us and the weather will be nice since the temperature is never predictable around here.

I'm walking in the March for Babies because it gives hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money raised supports programs in the community to help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten babies.

I know the nightmare of walking out of the hospital with empty arms. Believe me it will never compare to anything you could ever go through. This club is the worst club to be in. So, please help me bring more happy and healthy babies home by either joining my team, With Angels' Wings, (click here) and walk along with me. I would really love to see you there. Or you can also help by making a contribution on my page. I know times are hard and I understand but every little bit adds up.
