Day #113 - April 25, 2010 - March for babies


Sunday morning John and I got up bright and early and headed to the University of Houston campus for the March of Dimes walk. My school's FCCLA club started the group and because John was a preemie (I know, who woulda thought??) we decided to join them and walk for babies. Not to surprisingly, no students actually showed up for the walk, but 3 other teachers from school came and it was nice to chat and walk outside of work. I was so happy that we did this for such a great cause. There were family teams out there with shirts and pictures of their preemie babies born at 23 and 24 weeks and they were all grown up and walking with the group. It is just amazing how much technology has improved and how babies can be saved and live a normal life when only making it through barely half of the time supposed to be spent in the womb. My heart was extremely happy after that day, even though I was exhausted!! :-D

Savannah, that is so awesome that you and John did the March of Dimes Walk for Babies. Jonathan and I did it with Leila. Leila was born 8 weeks premature and we struggled through 2 1/2 weeks in the NICU in Houston with her. Everyday was trying on us but seeing that others are supporting the cause is truly inspirational!
