We walked

Today was the March for Babies.  We were the ambassador family this year so after a very emotional speech we enjoyed the walk surrounded by our amazing family.
Mark and I were completely humbled by the amount of money our family team was able to raise and how many people came to walk with us despite the grim weather forecast.
I can never say enough how much it means to me that so many people walk with us to keep Hadley's memory alive.

As my children grow, I realize that this walk is not just a way for us to give back but it is a day for them to understand what they have overcome and a chance for them to spend time with their sister's memory.
Tonight at dinner I asked the kids what their favorite part of the walk was.

My little two and a half year old man's answer?

I am so glad you had so many people with you to honor Hadley, McKenna and Parker. Your pictures from the day are great. :)

I have tears reading this and seeing the adorable t-shirts. What a beautiful tribute to Hadley, hugs, Nan xxx

Parker has a big heart and a special connection. The walk was the best and Hadley remains a part of all of us. You & Mark did a beautiful job of honoring her memory.

Ahhh! That is sooo precious! I love the kids shirts - didn't get to see them under their coats! It was great seeing you guys and helping you honor Hadley.

Shoot - I almost made it through the day without crying - Parker did me in. I love their little t-shirts.
