Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I am walking in memory of my daughter Avery and all our beautiful children and their families. The Miss Foundation Kindness Walk is to remember all of the children that are taken to soon, and to honor all of the families that go through the pain of losing a child. The Miss Foundation is a non profit organization that provides immediate and ongoing support to grieving families. The MISS Foundation has helped me see that it will get easier with time and that maybe someday I can help another family find peace. This is my families story.
Avery was born premature at 24 weeks on December 9th, 2011. She was amazingly beautiful and strong weighing 1lb 5oz and 12in long. The delivery however was very hard on her and she grew her wings on December 10, 2011. There is a hole in my heart that will never be filled. I have always wanted to be a mom. My husband and I welcomed our oldest daughter Ainsley on September 7, 2010. She is such a joy and fills my life with so much love. I never knew you could love someone so much. From the moment I found out I was pregnant I was in love. So when we decided to have another baby I was so happy. I wanted Ainsley to experience the joy of having a little brother or sister. When I found out that it was another girl I was thrilled. Ainsley and Avery were going to be the best of friends just like my little sister and I. I had so many hopes and dreams for my girls. Just the thought of watching them play and grow together warmed my heart. When we lost Avery I was in shock it just didn't seem real. When I left the hospital without my baby I was numb. Not knowing the pain I was about to go through when it finally hit me that she was gone. I have my days where I think of Avery and smile and I have those days where I feel like I can't go on without her. This is going to be a long hard road but with my wonderful family and friends I know that my life will go on. The MISS Foundation is a wonderful organization and with them I feel at home. So I am going to walk for Avery and all the other children that soar. Thank you for reading my story. :-) XOXO
