The DC Walk of Hope was last Saturday, and it was incredible! Ben and I kept talking about what a difference a year makes - last year we were mourning Cece, and this year during that mile walk I carried our son in my arms. To say we felt humbled would be an understatement.
At one point I whispered to Parker, "these are your people baby, and you are our hope." (And then of course I started crying).
I thought about so much during the Walk - my fellow infertility warriors, all the people I know who have angel babies, Cece, Parker, and all the people who have lost hope. I know how that feels and I kept coming back to the thought that I would be their hope until they found it again.
I met her last year volunteering for the Walk and we simply clicked. We worked so well together and she has one of the most positive attitudes of anyone I know! Plus, her team ROCKED it this year - they were the biggest team, and raised the most as a team for the Walk!
I could tell you more about the Walk, or I could just let the pictures do the talking! (Side note: the rain held off and while it was breezy during the Walk it was pretty hot - tell me why I thought it was a good idea to wear jeans?!)

So many people walking for the cause!
A HUGE thank you to all of you who donated and who walked the day of, and tweeted/texted or messaged sending encouragement. Ben and I are so fortunate to have such an amazing supportive community around us.
