Saturday morning a group of twenty-three gathered to support Team Morgan Kate and to "March for Babies". Despite the rain and wind, we had a great turnout and a great time. And we are so appreciative to all of our "walkers".

(Melissa and Caroline came too, but missed the group photo by just a few seconds.)

It literally started raining the minute we began the walk. As we were making the turn back into the fairgrounds the rain stopped. Some wore raincoats, some used umbrellas. Others, like myself, had nothing. And that resulted in quite the " bad hair day".

It's always such an amazing feeling to be a part of a day like Saturday and to be part of an organization like the March of Dimes. It's amazing to see the people that come out not only for Team Morgan Kate, but for all babies. And it's also pretty amazing to see other parents who have been in our same boat. Parents who know how we feel and how we felt. Parents like the Burkett's. The minute I saw Talyse I got all teary-eyed and emotional.

We are so incredibly blessed to have the love and support and encouragement that we have from our friends and family. And it means the world to us to have them share in such a special day. And to give of their time on a Saturday morning, bright and early, to be with us. We are and will be forever grateful.
