The March For Babies Is This Saturday!

This weekend is the March For Babies. I feel very honored to have been chosen as their Tri-Cities Ambassador Family for this year. We were able to make a fundraising video that has been used in many places, were featured in a local magazine, attended and spoke at the March Of Dimes Gourmet Gala, and there are even many more things in the works that I am going to be involved with in the months to come. I am very excited to be able to give back in a way that is special and meaningful for me. I am blessed to have the opportunity to teach Trenton to have a big heart and to care for others in hard situations and those less fortunate than himself. I really do still believe that the world can change all because of one person.

This place I am today is an amazing place and it is all because of my dependence on the Lord. I can hope because He lives and that has given me the strength I needed to go on. God can create beauty from ashes. I am seeing the proof of that in my own life. He is truly an awesome God. At times I have not been able to see His plan, but leaned on Him anyway, and that is the beauty of how He works. I don't have to know...He already knows and that can calm my spirit. If you would have asked me 9 months ago if I thought I could ever be in a place where I was truly grateful to God for Paige's life and that I could ever be at peace with Him taking her from me and if I could speak about her without tears in my eyes and instead joy in my heart...I would have most likely said no. But I am thankful that God has chosen to take me from a very broken and hopeless time and fill me up with his joy and hope so that I can do wonderful things to honor the life of my little girl.

I have posted our March of Dimes video below for you to see. I know there are only a few days left until the March for Babies, but please think about joining my team and walking with us this Saturday in Columbia Park or making a small donation to a wonderful cause. Team Trent 'n Paige walks to honor and remember all babies who are born too soon, those who sadly die each year, and also to celebrate all of our living children. It is my hope and the hope of my team that one day all babies will be born healthy and on time. Imagine if everyone just gave $5.00...when you put it all together that is a lot of money raised to help our babies in Washington. It is with small steps that big things can happen. If you can't walk with us or donate to our team, would you at least pray for good weather. :) Thank you for your love and support.
