On October 8th 2010 my wife and I experienced something no family should ever have to go through. After spending 20 hours in the hospital our twins Noah James and Hannah Louise were born 4 months premature at San Antonio Community Hospital.
They lived in our arms for an hour and then went to be with the lord.
Before we left, the hospital provided us with a memory box, pictures and keep sakes that have truly helped us deal with the grief and sadness.
Those keepsakes were furnished through the kindness and care of Walk to Remember, Inland Empire.
As a way to honor their short lives, my wife & I are going to be walking on Saturday October 6th 2012. The walk benefits the Walk to Remember charity.
Your donation will help them continue their work to :
* Fund memory box programs at local hospitals so that no parent leaves with empty arms. Assure that every hospital in the Inland Empire has a camera, printer, paper and ink to capture photos of the precious babies for their parents.
* Establish support groups and support avenues for families experiencing a loss.
Support our Tender Mercies program, offering compassionate assistance to families in need with the unexpected end-of-life fees after losing a baby.
* Provide Sibling Comfort Packages available for the brothers and sisters grasping the loss of their new baby. Sponsor a Perinatal Palliative Care program, which supports families who wish to carry their baby to term despite a fatal diagnosis during pregnancy.
Last year with the help and generosity of many and our walking team. We were able to not only meet but exceed our team fundraising goal.
