"Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children and others throughout the generations. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events." --President Spencer W. Kimball

PLEASE HELP!

Please help support us with this amazing cause! 
March of Dimes/March for Babies is a very special cause that hits very close to home for me. As many of you know, I was pregnant with twins and last year.....I ended up having to bury my daughter Cindy and her sister, Baby Katea was born 16 weeks prematurly, at 24w5d. She only weighed 1 pound when she was born, and we weren't even sure she would survive.  It is a miracle she is alive and doing so well today!   Did you know that 10% of all pregnancies end in prematurity??   I didn't until it happened to me! That's why this cause is so important!   March for Babies raises, not only awareness, but money to help fund advancements in technology that help these little ones that were born to early, survive and strive. I have no doubt that because of how far medical technology has come, my baby Katea is here with me today! But there is so much more to be done....and with the help of everyone, we can get there!

We have created a team for the March of Dimes, March for babies this year....we are TEAM KATEA! We have set a personal goal to raise $500 to help with this great cause....we are so close to reaching our goal....and we only have a couple more weeks!   Please check out the link below and help us reach our goal!    Also, if you would please help us spread the word by forwarding this message and link to your family and friends!   The more we can get the word out, the more babies lives are saved!   No amount is too small....whether it be $5 or $500...any amount will be greatly appreciated!  Or, if you're in the area and free on May 5th, come walk with us!  It's free to sign up, and everyone that walks, raises money!

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.


Please think of my sweet angel baby Cindy and my miracle fighter baby Katea and help us reach our goal!
