I am sure that there are plenty of purse strings much bigger than mine that probably operate something similar, but I want to start a nonprofit organization to help families dealing with pregnancy complications or pregnancy or infant loss or even the serious health problems of their children with the little things. Like helping clean the house or paying a service to help, stepping in and paying some of their bills (including “nonessential ones” that DSS won’t cover like car insurance and cell phone bills that are absolutely essential to families dealing with this) in Carter’s name. We could call it The Carter Foundation for my beautiful son. I don’t know. It’s an awful big thought and I am probably over-reaching. But I’m alone with my thoughts right now, and I just want his life to have MEANT something to the world, because it meant THE WORLD to me.
