I’m Marching for Miracles

 4tunate March for Babies

***Edited to Add: Please feel free to join our team and walk for your own miracle.  The more the merrier!  We would love to have a team full of all different experiences and stories. Also, I think this is the first time I have ever in the 3+ years of this blog asked for a $ donation to any cause. If each reader would donate just $2 we could meet our $3,000 goal! Thank you in advance, friends!***

Our family has been chosen as a Family Ambassador for this year’s March of Dime’s Walk for Babies. We are both excited and honored to be part of this tremendous effort in the fight for babies.  For us this cause is very personal.  We watched four preemie babies struggle to survive their first few weeks of life.  We stood helpless, as we watched machines and modern medicine helped their bodies function. Their small underdeveloped bodies were not yet ready to meet the demands required outside of the womb.

We know that the diligent efforts of the March of Dimes have had a direct impact upon our boys’ lives.

So that’s why we are forming a 4tunate Team. And we would LOVE for you to join us!  We know you feel connected to our family.  You have joined us in this journey.  You have followed our miracles, and now we’re asking for you to get behind our personal March for More Miracles.   

We’d love to walk along side your families on April 25th in downtown Indianapolis. We’d love to hear your own stories of how you have encountered premature birth. We’d love for you to give on our behalf.

How will you help us in the fight to save babies?

    That's great that you guys were chosen as ambassadors! I'll be at the same walk, walking for my son Aidan. He was born at 28 1/2 weeks due to my cord failing and lived for 8 days. He passed away from a massive brain bleed that started to shut down his organs.

    What an honor to be chosen as ambassadors!!

    My Mothers of Multiples Group walks each year and this is my 2nd year as team captain. We've walked each year since my twins were born and they are almost 3.5 now. I am hoping to meet our goal this year, too! Good luck!!

    Hi Jeniffer! More power to all those who will participate. I believe that this type of activities can build a strong bond between its participants and make more people aware about your cause.

    My sister has micro-preemie twin boys (now 2!) and we have been doing the walk since they were born at 26 weeks. We will be doing the walk for them in Indy next month. Such a great cause. And so special to walk for all of our little miracles! Good luck with your walk/fundraising!
