Help Addie and Alex take Steps

As you might be aware, our family has been touched by the March of Dimes mission to prevent birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. That's why we have formed a Family Team to raise money and participate in March for Babies. Please join us in our fundraising efforts today by sponsoring our event. In addition to forming a team for Addelynn and Alexander, we have been selected by the March of Dimes to be The Ambassador family for Huntsville, Alabama. During the time up until the walk, Dale and I will be very active in community events, promotions, interviews, and present in local media. At the event on April 18th, we will be giving a presentation on how the March of Dimes has impacted our lives and the day to day life of Addie and Alex.

It is now that we are asking for your support. We realize that with much of our family and friends living out of town, it might be hard to join our team. However, you can join our team and help us raise money without being present at the walk.
When all is said and done, we would like to have a team of 150 people. Yes, we would love to have you join us on this exciting day for our family, but would be honored just by you joining our team.

Contributing to our team online is fast, easy and secure. You can donate directly from my personal web page with a credit/debit card or Pay Pal. If you prefer, I can also accept cash or check. Just click the appropriate box on my web page.

Our family knows firsthand the challenges associated with prematurity. It is important to find out why premature birth happens and what can be done to prevent it. By raising money, ongoing research to answer these critical questions is funded. When you support our Family Team, you show you care and you give hope for defeating premature birth and other threats to babies.

Please join us and millions of compassionate people across the country who support March for Babies each year. We need your help. Visit my web page and sponsor our event!

With your support, there's hope!

Thank You!

Dale, Jennifer, Addelynn and Alexander

I found your blog through Kelly's Korner and wanted to wish you luck with your March for Babies. My son was born prematurely this past October and we will be walking in our local March in his honor this May.

ok, so can those precious babies be any stinking cuter!???

i came over from kelly's korner, harper's momma, and i want to offer you my prayers and support a few ways. first, i am a momma of 4 of them premature, one born drug induced, and one born to a 13 year old momma...and one semmingly the way most others are born...i say with a smile.

prematurity has had some issues and every day that i hold my sofie and cuddle her and look at her perfection, i stand in awe of god and his mighty power.

second, count me in. i'm financially supporting you all too.

best of luck...and seriously, put those kids in commercials! they are too much!

I found your link and had to visit. I am the mom of two boys (not twins) but had they been girls they would have been Addison (Addie) and Alexandra (Alex). Love your names. J

I cam across your blog from another blog! It caught my eye because I am a mom to two adorable kids as well. My eight year old son is Alexander, and my four-year old daughter is Adeline. Of course, affectionately known as Alex and Addie! We are participating in a local March of Dimes and will continue to pray for all of these wonderful babies!
