November is World Prematurity month....

     Premature birth is the leading killer of newborns worldwide

While other parents are counting happy milestones — baby's first smile, first tooth, first steps — the parents of premature babies are counting heartbeats. Premature babies aren't just small. Many of them — one million babies each year — won't make it to their first birthday.
 That could've been our story 9 years ago as I went into premature labor unexpectedly at 25 (almost 26) weeks but by the grace of God, our story took a different and more unique turn.  And while the picture above looks like a pamphlet,(it isn't) it is indeed my THING 2, my special guy who I love to the end of the world and back.
I came into the world of scrapbooking because of this journey with prematurity and while I have NOT scrapped the first 2 years of this kid's life, ONE DAY I will get to it...I canNOW look at pictures like these but can't journal about it so that's where I am stuck....9 years later...

As we lead up to World Prematurity Day ( November 17th), I'll be sharing links to organizations and will also share some more parts of our story in order to to bring awareness to the such a serious issue.
