Dear friends and family,
As many of you
know, my brother Robby and my sister-in-law Rachel brought two little
miracles into this world on September 30, 2011. Born at only 24 weeks,
Delaney Louise weighed 1# 10 oz and Barrett Robert weighed 1# 8oz. They
were both little fighters but unfortunately little Barrett lost his
battle on October 9th.
was in the NICU at Stormont-Vail for nearly 4 months and on January 9th
she got to go home with her mommy and daddy. She has continued to
progress and is growing big, just shy of 10 pounds now and will be 6
months old on March 30th. Throughout these past 6 months the March of
Dimes has been a great resource for our family and has provided Robby,
Rachel, Delaney and Barrett with support, services, and needs in some of
the most difficult times.
The reason for this [e-mail] is to let you all know that our family is planning to walk in the March of Dimes 5 K Walk for Babies in celebration and memory of Delaney and Barrett. We are getting a team together now and would appreciate your support.
Barrett, just a few hours old weighing 24 oz.
That's just a little more than a bottled water!
