My Baby Girl Finishes Her First 5K

Before the race

Dd ran in her first 5k today.  We are so very proud of her.  She said as she was running at times she wanted to give up, but she didn't.  She kept pushing to the finish line.  The race was to make money for the Bowie-Severna Park Pregnancy Center.  Dd raise $501.00.  Wow.  The pregnancy centers help women who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy...they help women make the best decisions for them about the baby.  The centers offer free sonograms, free testing including pregnancy and std tests.  They also provide information about free government financial aid, baby clothes, diapers, blankets, toys....whatever a woman needs for her newborn.  The people who work volunteer there are truly compassionate women and men.
