This Thursday, November 17th, is the very first World Prematurity Awareness Day. To help raise awareness, I have been blogging here and there about prematurity facts and our experiences with Claire's prematurity. A heart mom that I met through her blog hosts an annual heart blog event called "Every Heart Has A Story" where other heart bloggers can link their heart story to her blog. Then they are all located in one place where other heart bloggers can find blogs to read about other childrens' heart experiences. It's been extremely helpful to us.
Anyways, I know it's kind of late, but as part of the World Prematurity Awareness Day, I wanted to try to host one of these blog link events. So on Thursday, I will attempt to do just that! You will hopefully be able to find the instructions our blog that day of how to link up your preemie story to Claire's blog. It was pretty simple when I linked her heart story to Stephenie's blog. So all you preemie parent bloggers (or preemie bloggers) get your preemie story ready to link up on Thursday!!! Even if you don't want to write a separate preemie story from your blog, at least link up your blog address so others can find it and read about your experiences. If you have a Caring Bridge site or a Facebook page, you can link those too!
Pass the word along to any bloggers that you know who may want to participate. I will probably leave the event open until the end of November to give everyone a chance to post their links.
So on Thursday, I will ATTEMPT to make this happen! If it doesn't work this time, I will try again next time! Check back Thursday and hopefully you will be able to share your story with others about your miracle baby!
Thanks in advance!!!!
