World Prematurity Day 2012

Saturday, November 17, 2012



Today is the second annual….

WORLD PREMATURITY DAY.

Today alone more than 1,400 babies will be born prematurely.

Today, every 30 seconds a baby will die from premature birth.

Today and every day we remember and bring awareness to the 1 million babies who have died this year alone.

Today and every day we honor the 14 million who this year are fighting to survive.

It's not dramatic.

It's reality.

I didn't realize the worldwide crisis of premature birth until I had one for myself.

75% of premature births are PREVENTABLE!!!!

PREVENTABLE!!!!

Mine on the other hand was not. I did everything right, had two previous full term pregnancies and yet it still happened to me.

Today I am thankful for odds beaten, statistics smashed, and our warrior baby! 
But we were the lucky ones. 

God saw fit to deliver our family from those statistics. 
And so you see, I cannot not talk about it. 

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to share our testimony and journey of how God has broken us, is renewing us, and is making beauty from our ashes.  I find it no accident it fell during Prematurity Awareness Month.  Enjoy the video I made to share our journey.

OUR Miracle
