Celebrating a Miracle

As I say to teachers at teacher's conferences, I usually blog about literacy...unless I'm blogging about one of my grandchildren. Here is one of those exceptions to my blogging rule: this blog is dedicated to Ebby Clark.

Here is a picture of Leslie holding her about six weeks after her birth on October 20, 2006. She was born 3 months early and weighed just under 2 lbs.
She stayed in the New Hanover Regional Medical Center NICU for 3 months.

Fast forward two-and-a-half-years later. Ebby is now a fun, inquisitive, loving toddler.

Today, Leslie and Neill, were the Ambassador Family for the Wimington March of Dimes walkathon. Neill gave the family's story, including the fact that Ebby was helped by the research that the March of Dimes has contributed in the area of an infant's lung development.
I am thankful to the Lord for Ebby's life. In her growth and development she demonstrates that we are "fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalm 139: 14.
