March for Babies

 Mendy and Lilly at 3 months


Many of you know my good friend Mendy (Gage) Laughlin.  We have been friends as far back as our High School days.  I consider it an honor to even know Mendy, but to have her as a life long friend is pretty remarkable.  We have been through many wonderful times in our life.....helping each other in beauty pageants, performing in high school musicals, living together in college, praying for our future husbands, holding each other accountable in our walks with God and planning our futures as Mommies.  We recently both have been blessed with becoming pregnant, but Mendy actually had a much different experience then I.  She was blessed with twins.  These beautiful girls decided to come into our world at only 28 weeks of gestation.  Life as Mendy new it was changed forever.  These sweet babies spent days that turned into months in the hospital before Mendy was ever able to bring them home. Needless to say, she and many of her friends have a heart for premature babies.  That is why I am participating in the March of Dimes March for Babies on May 8th in Oklahoma City.  The girls and I will be walking with Mendy and her sweet girls Renna and Reagan.  We are so excited to have these girls here in our lives healthy and happy, but it would not be the case if it wasn't for the medical care that they received while in the hospital.
