Charlotte's Walk

In Memory of Charlotte Amelia, I run an organization.
And in the amazing effort to BREAK THE SILENCE and introduce the world to these fallen babies, we walk together on Saturday, May 8, at Look Park in Northampton, Massachusetts. Registration is at 10:30 AM, walk begins at 11.
Walk? Why do we do a walk?
I don't know, because we all come together, and then we make a statement by all being there, carrying balloons, wearing shirts. We walk in the audience of all the other families, and we say, I have an invisible child, and you can't ignore me anymore.
But the great part is that we all get to hang out, and afterwards we'll have a picnic together.

It's a fundraiser, but do you want to know a secret? I could care less about the funds. Really. I'd even say, don't donate, if you asked. But I would say, come. It shows you care.

So pack a picnic, and come, if you live nearby. I'd love to see you.

We are in Eastern MA, just outside of Boston. I wish we were a bit closer. I love the idea of the walk. I'll be thinking of you. I hope you have a satisfying day...

If I hadn't fled to my parents for support right now, I would be there.

Carol, are kids allowed at this walk? I am not baby lost, but have a close friend who lost her first child an hour after birth. I wouldn't want to upset some of the mothers who can't be around kids. Just wondering...
