March of Dimes 2011

It’s that time of year!!  We are walking in the 2011 March for Babies and we need your help again this year!

On Facebook a couple weeks ago, I put this as my status:
"This is the week we remember all babies born sleeping, or whom we have carried but never met, or those we have held but could not take home, or the ones who came home but could not stay. Make this your profile status, if you, or someone you know has suffered the loss of a baby. The majority won't do it, because unlike cancer, baby loss is still a taboo subject. Break the silence. In memory of all lost angels.♥”

I hardly ever do these types of status post, but how could I not do this one?  I had to remember my baby who I held but could not take home.

This is the main reason we raise money for the March of Dimes.  No one should ever have to deliver their kids at 25 weeks and watch them fight for their lives.  Trust me when I say that seeing your 12 hour old baby take his last breath is the worst thing you can experience. 

The March for Babies is the walk that saves babies.  The March for Babies supports research and programs to help prevent or treat premature birth, infant mortality, and birth defects.
