I'll be running Boston this year in memory of my Matthew, our 4th little boy, and in support of Sufficient Grace Ministries (http://sufficientgraceministries.org to learn more), a program that helps families that have lost infants.
We were expecting Matthew right around the Boston marathon in 2013, but learned he had Trisomy 13 in December, and he wouldn't live. We decided to support his life as long as he had the strength to continue, and continued the pregnancy. Our little Matthew was born early on March 9, 2013 and he was with us for 2 hours of life here on Earth before moving on to be with God in Heaven. It was 2 hours that Mom, Dad, and his 3 brothers got to hold him, love him, and say both hello and goodbye at the same time. It was 2 hours we'll treasure forever.
Running Boston this year is just my way of doing something for my Matthew, and trying to help other families that are going through similar situations. If you would be interested in helping, we'd welcome your support.
