Thoughts on Prematurity

This weekend I walked in the March of Dimes March for Babies at Norbuck Park near White Rock Lake. For those of you interested, its not too late to donate - just go here and you can donate online. All along the route there are signs in honor of and in memory of babies that were born too soon. I read every one of the signs along the 5 mile route and saw many babies that were born later than D with "in memory of" signs. With all of the stories that I have read in the IF world lately about babies being born as early as 24 - 25 weeks, I am forever grateful that I was able to carry D to 31 weeks. When I look at my beautiful, healthy boy, it is easy to forget that things could have definitely turned out differently. I am not really sure of the point of this post other than to say how grateful and thankful I am to God that D is healthy and stronfg and I hope and pray that if I ever have another child, God will provide in the same way.

D is such a little miracle and I know God will use him for his glory. The March of Dimes is such a great organization and is close to my heart ever since the premature delivery of Grace. I pray that they will make great strives to help prevent what I and so many others have gone through. You did such a great job rasing money for them!!!
