Strides for SIDS 2009 Mom-Olympics!

In the very early days after we lost Luke, we received a package in the mail that included a few books dedicated to the subjects of SIDS and grieving the loss of a child. We had no idea who this package was from, but it was helpful and we appreciated it even though we were totally numb from the shock of what had just happened.

Periodically, we have received additional similar packages from the same people who sent that first one. Their names are Ladd and Stephanie Williams and they lost their son, Jacob, to SIDS in January 2007. They also have a daughter, Abigail. You can read more about them and their ministry on their website, Tiny Handprints. They have been a tremendous encouragement to us and I know they have helped many, many families throughout the country.

I'm writing to let you know that this Saturday, April 18, the Williams and Tiny Handprints will be hosting their very first fundraising event, Strides for SIDS 2009 Mom-Olympics, at The Avenue in Murfreesboro, Central Park (in Tennessee). Please click here for more details, including a description of the event, a flyer, a map and directions, and contact information in case you have questions.

Nicol and I will be there and we are looking forward to the experience!
