I’m a preemie mom. I have a beautiful little girl that was born early, at 32weeks and 3 days due to complications of pre-eclampsia. Despite her small 2 pound 14 ounce size, she came out yelling and screaming at birth. I missed the yells and screams due to a crash cesarean. I’m proud she beat the odds and never needed oxygen to breath.
and last Saturday, the It’s a Preemie Thing team got together to walk for our babies. March for Babies. Our team had a meager goal of $1000. We made $4578 – number #3 in the state.. I am REALLY PROUD of that. My own goal of $1000 was not met, but loving friends, family and a complete stranger came through and I raised $650 for the March of Dimes.
Not too shabby. I can definitely be proud of that.
Next year? Yeah, we’re going to be #1.
What are you proud of?
ps…. if you’d like to donate to my team, or me personally, you can through June 1st! Thank you so much for your support!
