We had a great time at the March for Babies this weekend! Some good friends and family walked with us here in Connecticut and we also had more friends and family walking in the March for Babies in New York. Go Ginny Go has raised over $5,500 for the March for Dimes and is one of the top 15 teams in Connecticut. Many many thanks to all of you that donated! We were once again totally blown away by the support and generosity of all of our friends and family.
We spent the morning surrounded by miracles as well as heartbreak. We were once again reminded just how lucky we are. As a micro preemie, Virginia is one of the lucky babies, she was born at a time where medical advances (some of which were funded by the March of Dimes) has greatly improved the outcomes for babies born after 23.5 to 24 weeks. We were and still are very aware that our story may be very different had Virginia been born just a few days earlier.
We hope to continue to our support the March of Dimes, we also hope to find ways to give back to the Newborn Special Care Unit at YNHH.
