Kick Off!

The March of Dimes Kick Off was Thursday and I had the chance to share Shyla's story.  Three pages of notes...ignored.  I got up there infront of all the team captains and everything just came out.  I guess I have replayed everything in my mind so much the story kind of flows out now.  I didn't even break down.  A few small tears.  I'm sure those in the crowd shed more than a few by watching their faces.

I must have done well though.

I have been invited to speak at the Regional Hospital.  To share her story again. 

How blessed I am to speak her name and blessed to be her mommy.
I'm really excited to be a part of this organization.  If you aren't familiar with the March of Dimes or the March for Babies, check it out here.  To start a team for the March for Babies, go here.

That's use your voice to spread awareness. I'm so glad everything went well and you have more doors open to speak.
