My name is Thalia Washington, and I live in Silver Spring, MD just outside of Washington, D.C. with my husband and my two living daughters. On August 16, 2015 our middle daughter, Neve, was born still at 40 weeks. After a routine, healthy pregnancy, her death in my womb at full-term was completely unexpected and utterly devastating.
My name is Candy Huffman and I live in Carbondale, Colorado with my husband and high school sweetheart, Matt. I am proud to be the ambassador for the state of Colorado and give my son, Benjamin, a voice.
At 27 weeks, I saw my doctor because Ben wasn’t kicking as much as he usually did.
My daughter, Dorothie (Dorie), changed my life from the moment I knew I was pregnant. In those short nine months, our immediate world changed for the better, all because of our daughter. I felt so lucky to be blessed with a little girl who was going to grow up surrounded by so much love!
