“I really had no idea what the March of Dimes really was before we had Parker,” said Brooke. “We are honored to be the March of Dimes Ambassador Family this year.
“March of Dimes has done so much that has affected the remarkable outcome of our situation and helped us bring a healthy baby boy home despite his early arrival,” Brooke added.
The Gehring family will lead the March of Dimes March for Babies walk in downtown Somerset next weekend.
And Brooke said she was grateful for the support the Gehrings received from family and friends through Parker’s roller coaster journey.
“We are so thankful to all of our family, friends, church members, and community who rallied around us and supported us and prayed for us,” said Brooke. “Every day when we hold Parker we get a glimpse of God’s goodness and his love for us and we are so thankful and humbled.”
The March of Dimes March for Babies is scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday, April 27, beginning at Rocky Hollow Park in downtown Somerset. Participants will walk through downtown Somerset in support of the non-profit organization, which raises funds for research into pre-natal and postnatal medical issues.
