Prematurity awareness month

Today I dug a small shutterfly made book out. It was the only pictures I have from when my daughter was born and she was probably already a day or two old. She’s all hooked up to tubes and wires and things that beep and breath and save lives. She was a preemie. It’s prematurity awareness month leading up to worldwide prematurity day on November 17th and I wanted to tell her again, how she was a miracle, a fighter, a tiny gift from heaven. I wanted her to know how I longed to hold her and snuggle her and when I did how excited I was. The March of Dimes fights for preemies and is an excellent resource for information on premature birth. Consider donating to this great cause to help fight for all the preemies in this world.
