This past Tuesday was our March of Dimes, March for Babies walk kick-off event. This year, William and Thomas were selected as the Walk Ambassadors. The kick-off was a nice event and I spoke to the group about our experience with a high risk pregnancy and micro-preemies. I have spoken about this publicly now a number of times but it never gets easier. I always get choked up while saying that they were born 13 weeks too soon and that they weighted only 1.12 and 1. 8 ounces.
I am so proud of my William and Thomas. They know how to work a crowd. They were up well past bedtime but still managed to smile and laugh at everyone they met.

We are honored to represent the March of Dimes. Without the life-saving surfactant that the boys were given at birth, they would not be with us today. I want to make sure the March of Dimes continues supporting research to give every baby a healthy start.
