Hi Faithful Readers! We're finally back online, hopefully this time for good. My amazing brother-in-law did indeed fix our computer. Actually he didn't just fix it, he upgraded it way beyond our expectations! So, hopefully this means we're on for the long haul this time; which will translate into more, consistent blogging!!!
There's really no way to catch you all up on what's been going on in our lives for the past 3 months so instead, I'll start things off with some BIG NEWS! I'm so happy to announce that ... (and no, I'm not pregnant!)...
The Bea Team is back! And, we're excited to kick-off our 2012 March for Babies team. Last year, The Bea Team raised over $2600. $2600?!?!?!?! That's incredible. I know it's likely that we won't come anywhere near that amount this year, but... frankly, I'll be proud if we raise $5. Because that's $5 that can help support a family like ours, a baby like ours.
Prematurity sucks. There's no way around it, and March of Dimes is doing everything in their power to help find the causes of prematurity and eliminate them. For good.
If you're a faithful reader of our blog, I hope you might consider supporting The Bea Team this year. Donating is easy! Just click this link: www.marchforbabies.org/team/thebeateam OR you can mail a check (e-mail me for the address).
Anything you can spare helps support families with critically ill and critically small babies in the NICU. It also helps March of Dimes fund programs that educate the public about prematurity and prenatal health.
As a doula, I can say that birth can be a magical, exciting experience, one that every woman deserves to have; but as a mother, I can say that every baby deserves a healthy outcome and a safe start in life. March of Dimes is helping make that happen.
We'll be back tomorrow with a photo catch-up of the past few months!
