March of Dimes walk

I just wanted to share my photos from the walk this morning. It was such an honor to be there walking amongst all those people. It was nice to see many survivors as well. The cutest little beings. I was really surprised about the whole dove release. They called me and asked to do that last week but I thought I was going to be doing it with others. I released one dove and another lady as well. Her husband just passed away a few weeks ago and he was a huge part of the March of Dimes organization. Sami's story was shared and it was very emotional. Looking out to the crowd and knowing I was there because of her it was so overwhelming to say the least. After that 21 other doves were released for all the other angel baby's. A few mom's who felt the same pain as me were also emotional. I understand, it was hard for me to hold it in too. I just wanted to reach out to them and tell them that I understand what they are going through.

It was a beautiful day and I was surrounded by my closest friend's and family, I couldn't have asked for anything more, wait yes I can .... for my honey to have been there to see for himself that Sami has touched many lives. I just wanted to share my photos with all of you, enjoy and have a great weekend.

Again THANK YOU to everyone for sponsoring our team "On Angel's Wings" together we raised $3060!!! Hooray!!! There are still some donations that have not been added to that total yet.

What a beautiful day, very emotional to say the least!! The doves are a nice way to release the babies, watching them "fly" away again. How did you get them to share your story? Did you know they would?

Great turn out, God bless those who donated to you!!
