I am a homeschooling mom to 3 amazing kids, married to the man of my dreams, and deeply in love with my Savior Jesus Christ! I LOVE running, which may sound weird but it is true :)My family is everything to me, my kids, my husband, and the whole clan of us of which there are about 20. I am blessed to have 2 amazing sisters who are my best friends who always cause me to strive to be a better person, and love me on even my worst days and for that I know I am truly blessed.
Why oh why would I ever choose, on purpose, to run 26.2 miles through LA? Well I will tell you why. I have been deeply, truly touched by adoption and Love Without Boundaries especially. You see I have 6 (soon to be 7) adopted nieces and nephews, whom I LOVE with all my heart! One of those sweet blessings came from a Love Without Boundaries home. I know the amazing impact they have been able to have on the most fragile of lives. The lives that they have been able to save through generouse people like you. As I am training and hitting some very scary mileage :) one thing keeps me going when every muscle in my body wants to quit.....the sweet face of the little one I am racing for. You see we can't even understand that there is NO one there for these little ones! When they are sick or sad there is no mommy to hold them and rock them and kiss away the tears, and while I can not go and rock, and kiss and wipe away all of these tears, I can keep putting one foot in front of the other to help them get the surgery they need, so that they can have a chance at that. So that they can live and have a chance at calling someone momma and daddy, and never feeling that lonely again. How could I not run, how could I not care. It is what God has called me to, so what about you? Can you help this sweet one?.......
