BornFree® Moms Making a Difference: Shower of Hope

On Tuesday, May 24, 2011, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes ravaged Oklahoma. My little family of four was tucked away in a closet and listened to the radio for weather updates as the rain and wind pounded our home. We were blessed and fortunate enough to miss the tornadoes. Shortly after the storm had passed, my husband and I tucked our two little boys (9-months and 2-years old) in bed, said bedtime prayers and watched our little ones fall asleep. We were all safe and sound.
