March of Dimes Walk

Juliana’s life was saved by your many prayers and by God’s working through the miracle of modern medicine. The doctors and nurses at University of Maryland Medical Center who worked so hard for our babies were greatly benefitted by funds and research done by the March of Dimes foundation.

In order to raise awareness of the tragedies of prematurity, the March of Dimes hosts walk-a-thons all over the country where individuals can raise money for this very worthy cause. My sisters and brother-in-law will be walking on May 2 in Chattanooga, Tennessee on behalf of Juliana, Zoe, and Eden, and we would love your support! If you would like to contribute to their walk and to saving premature babies, please visit their team site: Payne3. You can learn more about the March of Dimes organization, and even join an event near you at We’re hoping that you will be willing to sponsor our family in this walk and donate to an organization that will help families everywhere.

Thank you, each one, for taking the time to come to our blog and post your comments in show of support. Thank you for your many prayers during our difficult time.

Also, to celebrate Juliana’s life and dedicate her to God, we are holding a special baby dedication at the Highland View Church on Sabbath, April 17 at 11 a.m. during the church service. We would be honored if you would like to attend and meet Juliana. It will be her first official outing into public, and we are so thrilled to be able to publicly dedicate her to God. Thank you all for being a part of our journey to this point!

  1. congratulations, wish I could be there for the baby dedication. I graduated from HVA 1970 ( yeah, I am feaking that it could POSSIBLY be 40 years ago!!!)I came across some info today at work that very preemie babies qualify for SSI (Social Security Income) has anyone mentioned this to you? If they haven’t email me and I will send the link to the website.

  2. Priscilla, thanks so much for the information. The social worker at the hospital was very helpful and proactive in getting us set up with everything that Juliana qualified for. Congrats on your high school reunion! Are you planning to come to alumni weekend? Maybe we will see you there. 🙂
