"Raising awareness of drowning prevention and organ donation one family at a time."
Drowning Prevention Shannon and I feel lead to help other families avoid the same tragedy. Something good has to come out of us losing our baby Edna Mae. We want to help as many children as possible learn to swim and have their homes prepared to keep children safe. You can have every precaution in place but accidents happen everyday, Children need to know the basic survival skills, so if they fall into a pool or lake they can help themselves. We thought it could never happen to us safe!
In our case... When I discussed swimming lessons with other parents, I never fully offered my opinion. I knew deep down that I should get the girls lessons,
BUT the classes were too expensive for our one income family. and I honestly thought I had time, Taylor was just barely three and Em was just a year and a half.
BUT I have two young children and I am only one parent, because Shannon worked full time. What would I do with the other child while I was in the pool. We want to take "The BUT" out of every parents mouth.
We now believe God had a bigger plan for Edna Mae's life. As hard as it is to accept that she isn't with us, we feel God is using us to make people aware of this problem. Too many children die each year from drowning or are never the same from near-drowning accidents, it does not have to be this way. There are programs out there to help each and every one, we just have to get the word out.
