Practicing Positivity

It is nice to think about trying to make a positive change come out of a negative situation.  But no one can truly make the death of a child into a positive.  That pain never goes away.  This is my reality; our reality.  I miss Jake and Sawyer every day.  I ache for them always.  I cannot make their deaths positive.

I can, however, remember them and love them.  I can honor their brother and sister who are here with us, who also help us remember them.  And, I can try to prevent other children from dying.  I do not want any other families to have to live in a world without their child/children.

So, this coming weekend, I will try to do that by Marching.  Marching in memory of Jake and Sawyer, in honor of our twins (who march with us), and to support the March of Dimes which strives to help every baby be born healthy, so no parent will have to go through what we have lived through and live every day.

Thank you to all those who have already supported our March of Dimes, March for Babies team this year and in past years. Thank you also to the hospital where our kids were all born for matching funds so that $1 donated = $2 to March of Dimes.  The March of Dimes uses the funds on key research, education and outreach programs.  They do great work, and we appreciate all of your kindness and generosity.  If you would like to support Jake’s Journey & Sawyer’s Strides , and make sure my marching helps other families, please click this link.  Thank you so very much.
