Home stretch

It's true, I am in the home stretch of my fund raising efforts for the March of dimes WALK FOR BABIES. I need to turn in all my donations to my team's leader this week (before we leave on vacation!!!). Our team once again is Lydia's Grace and is in memory of Lydia Grace Focosi who went home to be with our Lord on the day of her birth back in December. Her mom Amy is a dear friend who has worked tremendously hard organizing a team and collecting donations and this is the least I can do.

As most of you know I also have had problems causing premature birth with 2 of my 3 pregnancy's and the March for babies is very near and dear to my heart. I am one of the fortunate ones to have 2 good outcomes with these very dark times of having a baby be born prior to full-term gestation-too many others aren't so fortunate and must cope with unexpected infant loss, and long term health problems.

Would you please join me in helping meet my final goal of raising $500??? If all my readers would give even a few dollars (it's super easy, just click the side bar and you can even give via secure cc transaction;-) we would easily surpass my goal which can go a long way to help others. Thanks for your consideration! Please click my sidebar link for March for Babies right now!

Many blessings to you all!
