I have to be strong

Saturday night, I will be attending an event for the March of Dimes here in Appleton. I have been asked to share Carson and Cooper's story at the Light a little star event. During this event, little glowing stars can be purchased for $10. At 6pm, there will be a little parade of glowing stars, followed by area families telling their stories. I must admit, I am a bit nervous. I have never been one to jump right up in front of a crowd and speak. I know I have told their story a million and one times, but it always seems like the first time when I tell it. I am not sure if the sadness ever goes away. I'm not sure if I will ever have a total grip on it. Maybe once the craniosynostosis isn't such a open sore, I will be able to put some of this behind me, but still, I'm not sure. I guess all I can hope is that I make it though with semi dry eyes.
Wish me luck.
Please feel free to visit the link and purchase a glowing star. Every star helps a premature baby.

Best of Luck!!

Found you through NaBloPoMo and had to say that I worked in a CHW NICU, and I've seen the important work of March of Dimes :) I actually link to them on my blog :)

I subscribed to your blog and I'll also be thinking of you :) Good luck!

Hope it went well. I have a hard enough time telling Joshua's preemie story without welling up and he didn't have near as many issues as yours did.
