Wow, that's awesome! I'll be looking for the kit you mentioned when we get things rolling down here in Charleston (with my family doing the Ambassador thing). It must feel great to know of the impact you made and the help it will provide to others! Thanks for letting us know! [:)]

Just a quick update on this, I had a MOD meeting yesterday to discuss WalkAmerica. Anyway, we did a quick recap of Prematurity Awareness and some kind of neat things came up. Our Indy ceremony apparently was the talk of MOD on a National level so our "kit" was distributed all over as a "go by" for other divisions. So don't be surprised if a roll call is held in your area in November. Also, the Imagine poem went over so well that it has been distributed Nationally to be used at Mod events. It's so nice to know that even the March of Dimes (who made Prematurity THEIR business) can be educated about what it's like to have a premature baby. I have received several notes from MOD bigwigs who thanked me for giving their work a "face". [:D] Now if we could just educate everyone on a national level about preeclampsia, I'd be a happy, happy woman.

Thanks so much for posting the pictures. I loved seeing them, and wished even more that I could have been there, and seen my sons' names displayed like the ones you showed us. [:)] and [:(]

Again, thanks for including us in this. I bet I'll be back in touch later about doing a similar kind of event for MOD here in SC (next year). Happy Thanksgiving!

I only have about 5 because I stopped taking pictures. I was too emotionally involved. Also, e-mail me if you want the short video I have of part of the Amazing Grace song.
