COME WALK WITH US! April 25th in Houston, TX!

or

It has been over 2 years since Kyle was born too soon. Could you ever have imagined we would go from this 545 gram baby with just an ounce of hope....





.... to this amazing little man...




...with a world of hope and so much more! and so many of you have been there every step of the way. If it wasn't physically I know it was in prayer, in thoughts and in LOVE.

God has done the unimaginable, the indescribable, the unbelievable and He has and is healing Kyle. Will you come celebrate with us and support an organization that helped kyle and all of us every step of the way. The March of Dimes is an organization that exists to help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. They also bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care. This information was priceless to us when Kyle was in the NICU.

Please join Kyle's team. walk with us; donate as we walk; walk with us & have others sponsor you as you walk - You can do all three or any combination! To be involved click above on the March of Dimes link and it will take you to my personal March of Dimes page where you can:

1. click on DONATE NOW which is sponsoring me as I walk! - don't forget to leave a message on my page when you do!

OR

2. WALK WITH ME which is joining Team Kyle and walking with us on April 25th! If you choose this option March of Dimes will have you set up your own fund raising paige. You will be linked to TEAM KYLE and will be able to get others to sponsor you as you walk. Don't be intimidated by this - it is all for a great cause and raising even $10 is a huge step toward the future of children born too early!

You can also click the TEAM KYLE link at the top of this post or HERE to visit the Team Kyle page - you can donate or sign up from here too. You can also view the Team Kyle roster and our total donations! I will be in contact with everyone on TEAM KYLE to let you know details soon!

THE WALK is 5 miles - however if you want to be a part of TEAM KYLE and don't feel like you can make the 5 miles - don't worry you can come and see us off and welcome us back and hang out under the family teams tent! You can also walk as far as you can and stop at a check point and one of the volunteers will give you a ride back to the finish area! also - wheel chairs are welcome!

There will be lots going this day - food, fun for the kids - it is really a whole day family event! So come and have fun!

More than anything - for my own heart - to stand shoulder to shoulder and walk the March of Dimes walk with those that walked Kyle's journey with me - I can not imagine any picture more beautiful. Please come join us!

Thank you for fighting with us to rescue other little guys like Kyle.

(OH! and if you register to walk - don't forget to put in your T-shirt size!!! We are going to print great T-shirts to give you to wear at the walk! If you donate but you can't walk with us and you still want a shirt - just let me know!)

Kyle is so precious and what a miracle. I started reading your blog about the time Kyle was born. What a story.........He is such a cutie - I wish I still lived in Texas so I could meet him in person!

Hi Kelly~ It's Jaime Dadd from the other night at the NICU. Thank you so much for coming and talking & then for talking to me more on the way out..I really appreciate it. It's so amazing to see Kyle in person..what a miracle he is! I wanted to ask you a question about ROP...did Kyle have this and did you have to do an intervention for it? I wasn't too worried about it b/c Peyton hasn't been on high 02 settings, but they found something today that is concerning called "Plus Disease"...sounds like it's correctable with laser, so I'm thankful but scared about the laser at the same time. Just thought I'd see what insight you had...they seem so vague about the eyes and it's so hard to understand if it's serious or not! Thanks so much, Jaime

Our Story

This story begins with 5 people. John, Kelly, Jadon, Jack, and Kyle (he is only 23 weeks old... and he is still safely tucked away in his mommy's belly) In an hour's time Kyle made his way into the world. 1 pound, 3 ounces- 11 and a half inches long. This family will never be the same. This child is a warrior. He has the spirit of a Lion, and more courage than a whole pride. He is fierce, and fearless- and he is teaching us to fear the Lord- and to believe that God is in our midst and healing even now. Join us as pray, as we praise, and as we journey through this life as lovers of God and all His glory.

Kyle is in the March of Dimes Promo!
