Walk for March of Dimes
I just wanted to post a little about the March of Dimes walk. It was great to be a part of. I enjoyed it even though it was not completely easy. It was a good little walk at a good little pace and at the finish I was a good bit sore. But I did it. Thats what our stickers said at the end! The scenery was great and Avery enjoyed literally every second of it. Not one peep in the form of a fuss as all. She squealed and looked and had a really great time the whole way through. It was a little emotional for me though. At the beginning a lady shared her experience with preemies. (Her two children). That made me cry a bit. Although it would have been a bit more had I not been in front of a thousand people. Anyway, talking about the NICU experience, and seeing other preemies, some doing as wonderful as Avery, and others not so much was touching too. We are incredibly blessed to have our Avery Grace and to see her toddling around and talking and growing. We are blessed and we know it. We are thankful for this organization that continues to research prematurity and we hope that one day they will be closer to preventing it. We are even more thankful to our Lord who hears our prayers and knows our every need. Here are a few pictures from the day. You can find others, which are fantastic if I do say so myself on Caseys blog.
