World Prematurity Awareness Day - The Blog Event

Today is World Prematurity Awareness Day!  Never in a million years did I realize that I would be bringing awareness to premature births from my own experiences.  But here we are.  And I hope by hosting this blog event today that we will create a place that parents of preemies or people just wanting to know more will be able to find lots of good resources to go to to read about other real life preemie experiences.  I know how much it has helped us by talking to others who have been through something similar.  It gives you reassurance that you are not on this journey alone, although everyone's journey with premature birth is a little different.  When you go through something scary and traumatic like a premature birth, sometimes you just need to know that someone else has dealt with it and has made it through. 

Hopefully we will get a lot of links below that you can go to and read stories of preemie journeys. 

Here is how this works:

Click on the the "add your link" next to the frog below:

1) Add your blog URL (Go to your blog, Facebook page, care page or caringbridge site. Click on the title of your update. Copy the entire URL in your browser. Then paste it in the "Blog post URL http://" box.)

2) Add your name, child's name, or page name (This is what will be displayed for everyone to see as the title of your link.)

3) Click Next Step to finish! You should then see your link appear.

I will leave this open until the end of November to give everyone a chance to add their page! If you have any questions, leave a comment or email me. Pass the word along to anyone you know who may want to add their link. Thanks for participating!
