Fight for Preemies Today

November is National Prematurity Awareness Month, and today, November 17, is National Prematurity Awareness Day. The March of Dimes has asked us preemie mom bloggers to do a post on how prematurity has affected our lives. I don't feel like I need to do that, since our entire blog is pretty much about that topic. Click on any post and you will see how prematurity has affected us. Joe and I are grateful that this blog has allowed us to share Charlie and Lily's journey and we are beyond thankful for all the support we have received because of it. But today we ask you to think not only of Charlie and Lily (and our sweet Annaleigh too) but of all the tiny miracles in the world currently fighting for their lives. Please support the March of Dimes and help give these miracles the chance to thrive.

Click HERE to see the Fight for Preemies Band created in Charlie and Lily's honor and to donate to the March of Dimes in their name.

Just wondering why you wouldn't want to have a band created in Annaleigh's name as well. After all, she's a very valid reason to support the cause again prematurity.

Essentially, I could only afford one band and I could not fit all three names on one band. I just made one to support the March of Dimes.

How do you have a band made? My youngest was born 10 weeks premature and I would love to have one done. We have supported the March of Dimes every year.

Jennifer - Just click the link I have to donate (the one that says HERE) and scroll down to the bottom. You'll see a button to create a new band.

Oh my gosh look how far they've come! Isn't it amazing to look back and celebrate?

FYI: My Aunt Linda created a band in memory of Annaleigh; if you'd like to see it or donate towards her band, here's the link: http://www.marchofdimes.com/prematurity/b_new.asp?band_id=56383

Thank you everyone!

I stopped by your blog to tell you a quick hello and Congrats on winning your MoM "Best Blogger Attitude" award. But once I clicked on your blog - I stayed for over an hour - reading and catching up!
