While pregnancy for many (outside of my family at least) is nine months worth of excited anticipation, purposeful planning and a hint of nervousness, for my sweet little sister pregnancy was full of issues the doctors couldn't explain, immense worry and cautious preparation. To say things were rough is pretty generous. She couldn't gain weight (clocking in at oh, one hundred pounds or so on delivery day sounds terrible, right?), she had almost no amniotic fluid and she was on hospital bed rest for the last five weeks of her pregnancy.
March of Dimes. This wonderful organization funds research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies (which is close to my heart in many other ways) and babies begin healthy lives. And they bring comfort and information to families, like my sister's, with a baby in newborn intensive care. In addition to raising funds and donations, they created a team to participate in Atlanta's annual March for Babies. Last year, our family donned our team "Jay Walkers" tees, loaded up our wagons and brought out the balloons to support sweet baby Bird and all babies born too soon.
March for Babies is on April 30 in downtown Atlanta and we are just as pleased as punch to support team Jay Walkers in such a great cause.
Knock my socks off people!
