Today is World Prematurity Day. It is to help raise awareness for babies born premature and why they are born early. Most of you know our story and why this is so dear to our hearts. There are many organizations that help in this cause. Some that are near and dear to me are: The March of Dimes Riley Children's Foundation , Deaconess Women's Hospital , and Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) .
All of these places and charities have helped my family in one way or another. With these amazing people and organizations, we would not have Blake with us today. These are amazing doctors, nurses, and people who give their lives helping babies and families through a very difficult journey that is the NICU. So please take time out of your day to research why this happens: CDC: On Premature Birth , and think about donating to these wonderful causes. They helped us get this little guy from an unimaginable 1lb 6oz, to the monster 20 pounder he is today!
