It was one year ago that Grace Ann Blundetto was born by cesarian section May 1, weighing 2 lbs. 2 oz. and was 14 1/2 inches long to Lindsey and John Blundetto of Gilbert (third and fourth from left, holding Grace.) Diagnosed with preeclampsia, Lindsey delivered at 30 weeks at Lehigh Valley Hospital. Because of all the great care Grace received, the Blundettos wanted to do something to support programs in the community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. They got a team together of family and friends, Growing Grace, raised funds and walked along with about 400 other people in the March for Babies (March of Dimes) walk held at East Stroudsburg University. So far, the local walk raised over $65,000. It was a great way to celebrate Grace's first birthday, who her mom says is, "Wonderful and growing!"
