We are now within one month of the
March for Babies
at the University of Houston
Sunday, April 27th
Starts at 9am
I am always proud to say I have 6 grandchildren. Four of them live on earth with their blessed parents but two of them live in Heaven with our Heavenly Father. It was a day that none of us want to relive in anyway. But, then again it was a beautiful day that we held their little peaceful bodies in our arms. They were beautiful little twin brothers who we still love and think about everyday. God has helped us in the last 4 years. He has taught us some valuable lessons. He has brought some of us closer to Him and others still deal with hurt, and rightfully so, and others of us to study more to find answers to "why us?". But, he is still guiding us, teaching us, and holding us in the palm of His hands.
We can't go back and magically change history on that day. I've wished a million times I could. But, we, as an entire family plan to do what we can to honor Brock and Brody Allen. They will not leave our hearts ever. It is because of this that we are raising money and planning to walk as a family in this year's MARCH OF DIMES...MARCH FOR BABIES. Just as I believe in the power of research in medicine for other diseases, I believe the power of research to help prevent premature births. Do your part. Find a local March of Dimes organization and see what you can do to help. Or log onto their website and donate what you can! Some precious family is counting on you. We have a precious family friend that was just admitted to the hospital today threatening to give birth to her twins at only 24 weeks. Same scenario as ours! Please pray for her and continue to pray for us and other families that live our lives forever changed by little missing smiles.

Beautiful remembrance. That's about all I can muster up to say with this big lump in my throat.

I cannot believe it has been 4 years. I look at Jack and think of what little buddies they would have all been. But, as I have shared with you before, I believe God needed these little angels for a purpose far greater than we will ever understand. I have been praying about this and want to it too late to join your team? I have taken the weekend off and would love to come along for this sweet journey. Might even be able to bring Giggi along! Call me soon and let me know what to do!
