Sunday 15 September 2013 we performed in memory of our babies we have lost.
Pregnancy Loss Australia had their annual fundraiser to raise money to assist families who have lost a baby through miscarriage, still birth or neonatal death. When they asked for stall holders and entertainers for the event we offered our Superdog Trick Show for the event. It was an honour to sponsor such and event.
To be able to bring joy into the lives of others who have also suffered loss or losses is a privilege. If for 15 minutes we can make people smile, take away the pain or give them something else to focus on our show is a success. Judging by the number of people who came over to watch, and those we spoke to after the show, I think we succeeded in our purpose.
Having suffered multiple miscarriages and a neonatal death there we lots of emotions stirred in our family too. The girls who perform with the dogs were very keen to do this in memory of their siblings lost and especially their forever little sister Serenity who went to be with Jesus at 13 hours old on 12 March 2011.
Balloons were released at the end of the day … a very moving experience.
Not sure how much was raised in total, but it was in excess of $20,000! Awesome effort by all involved!
