We Interrupt This Program...

to bring you a special message. Your regularly scheduled program, "9 Days of Ed" will air sometime following this message.

Everyone who has ever read more than a post or two on this blog knows that Eddie was born 11 weeks early. You also know that we are VERY blessed in that other than being a little small for his age, Eddie is 100% completely healthy. That truly is a testament to the grace and power of God.

That said, there are many, many moms who give birth to children prematurely who are not nearly as lucky as we have been. There are also moms who are capable of carrying a child to term but whose children are born with serious defects or who are born straight into Heaven.

The March of Dimes works diligently each year to research causes of and cures for prematurity, birth defects and sudden antenatal death. They are able to fund this research through donations from people like you and me.

One event that they host annually is WalkAmerica. Last year Eddie and I participated and raised just shy of $500! This year, I am inviting you to join me in the fight against prematurity, birth defects and SADS. You can donate to the March of Dimes through my www.walkamerica.com to find out more.

I apologize for the begging, but I believe this is a good cause.

And now... back to your regularly scheduled blogging.
