Something Close to my Heart

I've always loved babies.
When you have your own baby, 
your heart quite literally explodes
in a good way.

That's why this has always been something close to my heart...

But now, it's even closer.

We found out that CT was going to be a healthy baby boy the exact same day one of my best friends laid her baby boy to rest.  It was easily the happiest and hardest day of my life thus far.
There are so many things you just aren't in control of when you are with child.

Attending Parker Grey's funeral felt impossible.
Impossible that he wasn't given time on this earth, that his mom and dad
couldn't bring him home and smother him with love.
Impossible that God needed him so soon and at such a young age.

March of Dimes raises money and awareness to prevent babies and mothers
from experiencing pain like this.  Every day babies are born too soon, too small, or too sick.
March of Dimes is working to stop this so my husband, CT, and I are walking along with our friends and their family to help raise money for this cause.

I'm asking, if you have room in your heart to donate, please consider donating to this cause.

You can sponsor me and my family as we walk 
in memory of Parker Grey 
in honor of Carson Thomas
by clicking this link.

Or, if you live in the triad area, join us on April 26 as we walk.

  1. I am sorry to hear of your friends loss...it is just so awful and it is a heartache my family knows too well. Your post was beautiful and thanks for the links so we can help :-)


Feel free to leave me some love. It makes my heart smile.
