I Went. I Spoke. I Stayed Dry.

Thank you for your concerns over my bladder continence.  I haven’t had so many people ask if I wet myself, since 1981. I’m pleased to report that I stayed dry through the entire Day at the Capitol event.  (I wore dark dress pants just in case.)

In all seriousness, thank you for your prayers and encouragement.  It went incredibly well and it was more low-key than I expected. I remained calm during my talk, and the boys did A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! (Thanks in part to the March of Dimes purple boxing glove key chains as a distracter.) They stood up there with us the entire time.  I choked up a few times reading my speech because it hit me once again that we are living a life with four miracles

It was an awesome experience to have their faces represent the successful outcomes that are a result of the March of Dimes diligent efforts and research.  In fact, we have been chosen as a March of Dimes Ambassador Family for 2010! It was a great help and support to have my parents there as well.

We took a few pictures inside…they really wanted to get some photos with us outside on the steps of the Capitol, but it was a balmy 12 degrees and we decided to pass.

    I am so impressed that you spoke in front of all those people! Good for you sweet friend! It is people like you and Brad who stand to educate and show how miracles do happen and Brooks, Clark, Henry, and Issac are TRUE MIRACLES!
