Joe and I recently lost our third baby, a sweet girl on May 1st, 2017. We named her Georgia Kate. She was beautiful and perfect, just shy of 22 weeks. Prior to losing Georgia, we suffered yet another loss- our beautiful twins, Mason and Caroline, on February 9th, 2016. Again, making it to the second trimester, but also deciding to make their appearance 20 weeks too early. A loss is never planned for, but to lose three babies in less than two years is unthinkable. The emotional, physical and mental trauma that occurs after the loss of a baby is beyond trying and sometimes just getting out of bed is challenging. However, each day we grow stronger, and are so blessed to have each other and our families. Joe and I are beyond grateful for our supportive and loving families, both near and far whom help us through these debilitating times. By supporting our local TEARS organization, you are not only supporting Joe and I, but the families and children, whom are effected by pregnancy and infant loss. Please consider joining us on our walk to honor our babies and donating to the TEARS Foundation!
Thank you so much for all of your thoughts, prayers and support.
Joe, Ashlee, Mason, Caroline & Georgia Kate Siuta
The TEARS Foundation is offering an exciting opportunity for the community to become involved with a growing and inspiring event. The TEARS Foundation's Rock & Walk is the signature fundraising event for TEARS. This annual event allows registered walkers to “walk” in honor of a child, or simply in support of others. Each team of walkers may also “rock” in the rocking chairs placed at the event site. Rocking chairs signify the heart of the walk, which is to raise funds for families who have lost a baby and are in need of funeral assistance and emotional support services.
The TEARS Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that compassionately assists newly bereaved families with their baby’s funeral expenses and with ongoing emotional support. The TEARS Foundation's Rock & Walk event is a time for our community to gather, to walk and to rock, and lift up the families in our local communities who have been affected by the loss of a child.
REGISTRATION: Register by September 14, 2017 for $5 (early bird registration) after that registration will be $10 per person. Children 12 and under receive free admission. You may purchase a personalized Rock & Walk t-shirt by September 4, 2017. A limited amount of non personalized shirts may be available for purchase at the walk. You may also make your own team shirts.
Thank you for helping us support bereaved families in North Carolina.
