THE STORY:

Amy Delaney wrote -

As many know, we walk to raise money for MADD to to help others who have been impacted by drunk drivers and to help stop drunk driving.

June 8, 2003 was our fateful day of being victims of a drunk driver.  We were headed home from a birthday celebration in Birmingham, AL.  We had not gotten far when a van crossed the median on I-2O and knocked us off of the expressway where we flipped several times.  My husband, Keith, did not make it.  Christopher and I were injured.  Our dog, Molly, was also thrown from the car and did not survive.  The man that his us was an illegal alien and had no injuries.  He was well over the limit, served a few months and was deported...no other consequences to his actions.

Keith was an only child and he and I had grown up together.  We began dating in high school and ended up getting married in 1998 and in 2001 we were blessed with Christopher.  Keith turned the wheel that day to keep us from being hit head on, he sacraficed himself for his family, but it was a sacrafice that should have never had to happen.

We are grateful God sent Robb our way to take us ALL in and be so supportive of all we do.  He and I were married in 2007 and we have been blessed with 2 more kiddos...Mackenzie and Keegan.  Christopher is in 10th grade and participates in the Spirit of South Paulding Marching Band and is a member with the 4-H Archery Team.  I know Keith would be proud of the young man he is becoming.

MADD has been a great support to us over the years with resources, listening ears and friendship.  They have been a vital part of our lives since that fateful day.
