This morning is a very bittersweet morning for a great friend of mine from college. This morning is the morning she and her husband said goodbye to their sweet baby Miller two years ago.
Miller was born too soon and was far too sweet for this earth. His 100 days of life were more full of fight than many of us have to muster in much longer lifetimes.
Miller has touched lives in ways unimaginable for someone as tiny as he was. And he continues to touch and change lives today. Two years later.
Much of this life-changing is done through the March of Dimes. Even though Miller’s story isn’t the usual March of Dimes story, his life is being used by the March of Dimes to show how much fight these precious warriors have and how much further we still need to go before all babies are born healthy.
Alesa and Bubba have become a Campaign Family for 2011. As a tribute to Miller and his parents, I’m writing this post today to ask you to give. $1. $5. $25. Whatever you can, whenever you can. There are so many success stories. But there are even more stories like Miller’s. And that is a heartbreak I cannot imagine.
If you feel compelled to donate to the March of Dimes, please consider donating in Miller’s memory through the link below.
We remember you, Miller. We’ll never forget.
