It was a great day :) We were the top fundraising family for our area! The director came to talk to me and asked if he could share our story as the "face of the event" for next year's walk, which is amazing!
The weather wasn't that great, but everyone hung in there. It felt so good to do something for and in honor of Sophie and Aiden. Hoping that even our $2,000 can help another family NOT have to go through what we went through.
My favorite part of the day was right after the balloon release. We watched the balloons float up, up and away-and as soon as they were out of sight, we saw this:
which was literally the ONLY time that day the sun had come out :) I choose to believe that it was a sign from Heaven that they got the message.
We also let butterflies free. I got them donated from a charity organization and it was amazing to release new life into the world on a day like that.
