My wife and her friend/coworker, Amanda, were pregnant at the same time and it was fun for them to go through the pregnancy stages together. Then, a few months away from Amanda's due date complications came up. A year ago today my wife's friend lost her newborn due to the complications. I cannot imagine what this family went through but my heart breaks for them. It also puts things in perspective. I should never complain of the long nights anymore.
Obviously this was such a tough thing for Amanda and her family to deal with. Thankfully there is a group in Madison called Mikayla's Grace. Mikayla's Grace is a charity that helps support families who lose their babies prematurely. They provide care packages and support for these families. If you want to learn more about this great charity, please go to their website.http://www.mikaylasgrace.com/.
Also, today for my act of kindness, I made a donation in honor of Amanda's baby.
