Honored


I am honored to announce to all of you that our family will be the March of Dimes Ambassador family for our area for 2009!
I cannot tell you how honored we were to be asked and how grateful we are that we will be able to share our children's lives with so many people. We were somewhat shocked when we were asked as the ambassador family is "typically" a family who's child has overcome great odds, usually was born premature and despite all of that is doing well. We are very excited for this upcoming year and what God has in store for us! I pray that this platform will bring glory to Him and the amazing gift he gave in the form of our children, all children for that matter.
Thank you to all of you who have supported the March of Dimes this past year in honor of our boys. It was your enthusiasm that drew the attention to our team.
We will be getting geared up for the March for Babies 2009 in January and we would love for you to join our team...more details to come....

This is so great! It is an honor for me to know Isaac and Asher through you, and this will allow you to bless MANY others and introduce them to your beautiful boys. Looking forward to hearing more about this.

Hugs and prayers,

Isaac and Asher did overcome great odds just to be born...and they are living and doing well - more well than any of us here on earth - so what better family could the March of Dimes have chosen???

I knew this has been in talks, but had not heard where it was at! I am honored to be a part of Team Isaac and Asher! You and Howard are amazing parents, and have told their stories so willingly and graciously, how could you NOT be the ambassadors??
All i'm gonna say is, you're gonna be HUGE!!(said lovingly) We'll almost be ready to be meeting Rose by then!!! And that my friend, makes it evn more exciting!!!

Oh, this is exciting! I am very impressed with the March of Dimes- I have been reluctant to become involved with the organization b/c like you said, I have felt in the past that they have only focused on babies who have survived despite overwhelming odds. My girls were stillborn, and so sometimes I have felt like I don't fit in. Please let me know how I can support you in your ambassadorship! :-)

That is absolutely fantastic, and as others have said before me - it makes perfect sense that you were chosen. You have introduced your boys, the topic of pre-natal concerns in ways that have touched so many & made so many stop and think.

Think of how amazing your Isaac and Asher are - to have been in earth for such a short time, but to have made a difference in so many lives. And those who raise money in their honor will affect the lives of many not even born yet.

I will be honored to walk on Team Isaac and Asher again this year!

Love, Lisa
