No matter how far the distance you have traveled nor the failures that have gathered, hope would still meet you anywhere.

Our family has walked in the March of Dimes’ “March for Babiesevery year since Jake died.  Originally our team was named Jake’s Journey.  After Sawyer died we renamed it to Jake’s Journey & Sawyer’s Strides.  We will be walking again this weekend.

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.  I believe that the March of Dimes is making a difference and saving babies.

I cannot do anything to bring back Jake or Sawyer but maybe, just maybe, I can help spare other parents the heartbreak of having to live in this world without their child/children.

Thank you to all those who supported our team this year and in past years.  Thank you also to the hospital for matching funds.  We appreciate all of your kindness and generosity.   If you would like to support Jake’s Journey & Sawyer’s Strides please click this link.

  1. Have a fun, successful, nourishing walk. One day I’ll go along but, for now, I’m with you in spirit.

  2. Great cause–and good luck in your walk! Walk on!

  3. I will be thinking of you all on your walk! Love, Amy

  4. I donated for Madeline a few weeks ago and now I donated for Jake & Sawyer, because I have a real job for the first time in many years. I was a NICU baby, although not premature, and I am so grateful for all of the medical advances made in the past three decades.
