March of Dimes

I just signed up to participate in WalkAmerica to raise money for the March of Dimes. This is an organization that helps prevent premature babies, a cause very near to my heart. A and B were born six weeks early, and they very easily could have come 14 weeks early since that's when my preterm labor started. I was given various medications to slow labor, put on bedrest, and also given two steroid injections to help the boys' lungs develop more. The boys had to spend 10 days (A) and 17 days (B) in the NICU, and it was a terrifying ordeal from start to finish. Now they are healthy happy four year olds.
