On January 25th, my sister-in-law and her husband welcomed their beautiful baby boy Alexander John into this world eight weeks early, only to have to say goodbye a mere day later. It was not the outcome any of us expected.
Everyday thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. So with empty arms and a broken heart, Melanie and her husband would like to try to help other families with premature babies.
Together as a family, we are walking in March of Dimes, March for Babies at the end of April. The March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
Please consider making a donation in honor of my nephew Alexander to help us help other babies begin healthy lives!
Every little bit counts!
