On a cool Saturday, we gathered.
Some of us marched in decorated rides,
and some of us marched the old fashioned way.
When we finished, we were proud.
We were surrounded by our friends, but most importantly, we were surrounded by her friends:
And soon, a new friend:
But most importantly, Annie was there, feeling the love for her sister.
Someday, Annie will know how much her sister means to so many people. Someday, she will know how much she herself means to everyone. She is a preemie too, but because of the March of Dimes, she is a preemie in name only. She is thriving. Every baby should get the chance to thrive.
Thank you to everyone who marched with us. Thank you to everyone who marched (and will be marching) elsewhere. To all who donated, you are heroes. The words to thank everyone adequately haven’t been invented.
Someday, I hope that no little girls will have to grow up without their big sisters.
thank you to my wonderful friends Dana and Megan for the photos
