This is Tucker and He was born 15 weeks early, weighing 1lb 3oz. His heart stopped when he was delivered & it took them 6 minutes to get him back. I am learning that he has become somewhat of a local celebrity due to an event that is the largest in the nation. The event is Bikers for Babies which benefits the March of Dimes. We were at the NASCAR race this past weekend in Kansas & we stopped to chat with some of the soldiers at their booth. As we were talking, when I told him about the Bikers for Babies Ride & how Tucker raised over $5000 for it this year; he got all excited & goes "Are you the Tucker I've heard on the radio? " Tucker goes yes & I was moved to tears when this Sgt. leaned down and shook Tucker's hand & told him he was his hero & he was a big fan. He also had another Sgt there who was an even bigger fan who blew me away when I saw his reaction to meeting Tucker. They both asked to take pictures with Tucker. My son has been my hero since he was born, & he melts my heart when he tells me that he's proud to know his mom was in the Army. He always hugs me after he tells me that! He's a fan of B4A & always helps me pick bracelets..
