Ambassadors for March of Dimes

I have some really great news to share! According to our Aunt Jeanna, our family is the local ambassador for Findlay for the March of Dimes. This means our story will be shared both locally and nationally. Carleigh's story will be even more national than what it already is as I know there are many people across the states right now that have been sharing a part in our journey with us. I imagine they will post our story of Carleigh on the March of Dimes website once we sit down with them and give them an interview, which is still in the works. The March for Babies walk in Findlay is scheduled for May 2 and we are to give an interview there if we are able to make it. My due date is April 24 so if I chose to wait to be induced I will be 41 weeks pregnant the date of the march. It would be great to have lots of our family and friends do the walk with us and help show their support. What a great opportunity this is to share about Carleigh and to raise awareness about anencephaly. I hope to show people that even though a baby has anencephaly their life still has immense value and that carrying to term is so rewarding. Also, there will be a few fundraisers following the march. I believe there is 2 in May-a spaghetti dinner and pancake breakfast-and 1 in June-a bike run.

I am so proud of you. Just think that if Carleigh had had any other mother, then literally thousands if not more would not have been as blessed and inspired.

Holly, I know you and Carleigh from ABFA. This is wonderful for your family and for us all that have lost children to anencephaly. There isn't much awareness out there and yet so many babies are diagnosed each year. Thankyou for being strong. You have such a good attitude and strong faith in God, its a blessing to me. You're in my prayers

I will definately be doing the walk in May. Let me know of anything else and where. Do you get to go anywhere for a national walk or anything? I don't think I'm doing the bike run! I'll do the dinners (LOL). I'm so glad you were able to be the family for March of Dimes. What a wonderful opportunity to share Carleigh's story and to bless so many people. God has a reason for it all! Love you all! Trina

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
