Mother's Day

This "hallmark" holiday is one that can be very hard to handle when your one and only child is in heaven. But today I got to do what I love best and that is honor my daughter. The Empty Stroller / Empty Shoe walk was AMAZING and the turn out was everything we hoped for. Looking around at all the families of the children gone too soon is such a sight to see. The love that comes when all the families come together is overwhelming. It was an honor to be there and to be recognized as a mother. My life changed the moment a little girl named Mckenna Jodell Fox came into this world and made me a mother. I AM a mother and Mckenna IS my daughter always and forever. I will walk for her until the day I am reunited with her again.
