August Fun- the SMA walk and roll

Angela Mosco is an amazing woman and mom of Evan (the other Evan) who has SMA. Last year she organized the first annual SMA walk and roll. Well, we had the 2nd annual event this year and it was SOOOO MUCH FUN!!!

I adore the other kiddos in Calgary who have SMA and their parents inspire me. I learn from them everyday and I love them more than they will ever know!!!

I still can't believe that God chose me to be the mother of this special boy. I often wonder if I am enough for Evan. I do indeed have a lot of guilt, constantly wondering if I am doing enough. Then I remember that God chose Evan to be in our family. God went to very specific measure to make sure that Evan could be with us. That means that I am everything that Evan needs.

Enjoy some of the pictures we got of the event to help the kids in Calgary!

before hand we took our boys to a bakery where we got doghnuts as big as my head!

even Raina wore a T-shirt in honor of Evan

Evan's physical therapist came to support "her" kids as well!

Ya, I think the next time I come up I need one of those donuts! Wish we could have been there. I wish we could go to the one in Burbank here in SoCal but it's on a Sunday.

Thank you Kira, just for being you... the excitement, joy and love you share with me and all of our other SMA families is the reason I work so hard to make our Walk & Roll the hugh success it is! And I have the support, hands and hearts of everyone, you all find time to help me out and work together as a team. It's amazing! It's alot of hard work phone calls, letters, emails, running around) and takes alot of time, but by the time "our day" arrives, it's all worth it to see the smiles and hear the laughter, and make more memories to share with everyone - until next year!

I love you!
