Congratulations! Your article was inspiring! It has made me stop today and be grateful for all that I have and it has given me strength to continue my journey to be stronger and healthier. Thank you for sharing your experiences and thoughts.
One of the most inspiring articles I have read on Spark! It just goes to show you how much we can achieve when we set our hearts and minds to it!
An inspiring story, but. . .as a mother of twins born prematurely (less than 2 pounds) I do not support the March of Dimes. Their message is one that has been extremely damaging to parents of children with disabilities or who were born prematurely. There are many reasons babies are born prematurely or have disabilities that have nothing to do with smoking, drinking or taking drugs, but the MOD perpetuates this myth.
Wow, this actually made me tear up.
