Still Marching

Tomorrow team March for Maddie will be participating in the March for Babies for the seventh year in a row – our sixth walk without her.

The march is something that’s very important to our family, to both remember and honor Maddie, and to help other families going through the same thing we experienced more than six-and-a-half years ago when we learned there were complications with Madeline’s pregnancy.

The March of Dimes has funded research that’s lead to countless strides in the fight against prematurity. They won’t stop until every child is born healthy. We won’t stop, either.

Like in previous years, I am again posting my speech from the 2009 March for Babies. Maddie passed away barely three weeks prior to the walk. I still can’t watch this footage. I don’t remember writing the speech and I barely remember giving it. But I hope all of you can take a few minutes to watch it, maybe for the first time, or maybe for the sixth, and remember all the babies out there that are gone too soon because they were born too soon.
