I remember sitting in the NICU a year ago and chatting with my cousin Melody - one of only three visitors we invited to the NICU - talking about "A year from now" and "around her first birthday". We said we'd do something special to honor our time in the NICU. So it was no surprise when they announced March of Dimes March for Babies nearby just 10 days before her birthday that we'd be walking for sure!
I registered at the end of December. It seems like so long ago, on the other side of the seizureville woods in February! I set my team goal for $500. Never did I realize the compassion that would come out of friends and family. I am overwhelmed by their generosity that allowed us to triple our goal! We raised over $1500!
I watched the weather carefully all week, and unfortunately rain was in the forecast. It did indeed rain, but luckily it was only a drizzle. The pouring rain held out until just after we finished our walk. Someone was indeed watching over us!
