Wear Pink Tomorrow

As many of you have already read this week, a fellow Mom of multiples, Brook, lost her two baby girls to a very rare genetic disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type 1. These two sweet girls were diagnosed the end of January and after only a month, Carynne and Sydney lost their battle. Tomorrow they would be 6 months old and it is also their funeral. To honor these beautiful girls and SMA research lets all wear something pink, it can be a shirt, socks, scarf, or even something as small as a hair pin. While you are at it, please sign this petition to help cure the number one genetic killer of children under the age of 2. 
Here is a link to learn a little more about SMA.

These two girls and their family have touched my heart in so many ways. Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers during this extremely tough time.
