The Day at the Capitol

The reason for asking for your prayers at 10:15 on Thursday morning:


I will be speaking briefly on our family’s experience with prematurity and our personal connection to these legislative issues. 

I’m feeling majorly a tad bit nervous, but excited to be a positive example of the vigilant efforts of the March of Dimes.

I hope I don’t faint at the podium…

Or refer to a Senator as a Representative….

Or forget which state I reside…

Or have 4 two-year olds making a ruckus in the audience…

Or pee my pants!

10:15 Thursday, People.  My deepest appreciation for your prayers and encouragement.

    Got your back, Jen. Will be praying, but who knows this subject better than you? I remember well the 8 weeks the girls spent in the NICU. It was still a month before their due date when they came home! It's a huge deal what you're doing with the survival kits. J

    Jen, you will do great. Speak from the heart and tell your story. You know all too well what it means to have a preemie and how 4tunate your family is. Good luck! Erin

    You're going to be amazing! Just breathe and be yourself. Remember that senators are just ordinary people too. You can do it!

    Did you write your speech for the state house? I'd be interested in reading it! You should post it…
