March for Babies 2010

Last night I sent out our March for Babies 2010  email and I thought I would share it with all of you!  We had a large group last year and I was so appreciative to have many there to support us & walk in honor for Emma.  It was pouring rain the entire morning but I loved with all of my momma heart to walk for our sweet girl.  Here is the email I sent...

March for Babies is coming up...and Joshua and I would love if you would support and join us again! It is a great time to honor and remember Emma and also celebrate the preemies who are healthy and thriving today. As March for Babies says, when you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies.

This past year I have met so many incredible families that have had to endure the loss of a child. I have developed friendships that will always be there, no matter our walk in life. So fellow mom's - know we are walking for your babies in heaven with Emma as well! We would love to have you join us this year! We are also supporting babies who were born premature and are thriving today! We are especially celebrating the Schneider twins on our walk, Jaxon & Avery were born at 29 weeks on March 30th, 2009 and are happy & healthy almost 10 month olds that keep their parents busy! I attached their picture along with a couple of Emma's - they are just so stinkin cute!
We are walking at the same location as last year, Phalen Park in St. Paul. Here are the details and the website to sign up:

April 25th at Phalen Park in St. Paul (same location as last year)

We are so thankful for all of the family and friends that came out last year to support us...needless to say in the torrential rain too! And those who couldn't make it, we know you were there in spirit! This cause is so near to our hearts and we hope that you are able to join us (again) this year. We miss our little girl so much and are very determined to help others in this walk. Thank you for your continued prayers and support. Please pass along the email to those we may have missed!
Love Josh & Angie
Here are the pictures I attached...

  1. That is wonderful, Angie. I walked in it before too. They have it at The University of Houston, where I went to college.


Thanks so much for your sweet comments!
