Last night was the annual March of Dimes Gala at the beautiful National Building Museum. My year as Mrs. Missouri (1996) I chose the MOD as my platform in honor of our sweet little Jayson (now an angel), and other families that had experienced stillbirths, birth defects or premature birth.
His mother, Melanie was five months pregnant with Josh when she went into an early labor.
"Do you wanna know something cool?" Josh asked the audience of over 600, all eyes fixed on him and hanging on every word. You could have heard a pin drop. "When I was born I weighed the same amount as 6 rolls of quarters. One pound nine ounces."
Not only is he an amazingly poised, articulate and a truly professional speaker (not just for his age but any age - and no disrespect to co-emcess Senators Baucus and Udall but he blew them out of the water) but Josh also maintains his own blog.
At the conclusion of his talk, he literally brought down the house. 24 hours later I am still in awe. Josh, you are this woman's hero and I plan to follow your blog throughout the remainder of your year.
Until next time,
