yesterday was our 4th buddy walk!!!! wyatt's first buddy walk was when he was 3 1/2 months old!!! that first year we had a huge team walking for wyatt....over 50 people! it was a tremendous show of support for our family during such a stressful time! we also raised the most money that year!
we have one family who has walked with us every year - our good friends, the wards! jeff, christy, caleb (one of forrest's best friends), claire, connor and kate! well....they almost walked with us every year; there was the year that they were registered to walk, and their precious kate decided to make her early appearance and they were in the hospital that year! but they were still a part of our team!
i don't think that the wards have ANY IDEA how much their support has meant to us through the years! they have been good friends of ours for several years now, and we LOVE spending time with them! but for them to take a saturday and commit it to supporting our family is just a very special thing!
we don't have to walk "alone!" we walk, laugh, joke around, and have a blast!
they are such a blessing to our entire family, and we thank God for them!!!!
