World Prematurity Day is Nov. 17

Did you know that World Prematurity Day is Nov. 17? I just found out and would like to celebrate the day with spreading knowledge.

I follow Project Sweet Pea on my blogroll and on Facebook and was alerted about World Prematurity Day. I will celebrate Ava, her health and the little miracle that she is.

If you visit Project Sweet Pea's Web site, you will see that they are a project that offers gift packages for NICU parents and family members. They have a great list of resources and local projects that you can support, or make your own! Also, on the site you can request a gift package, by clicking here.
About three months old (one month adjusted).

A little tid bit: Every year 13 million babies are born prematurely worldwide. One million of these babies will die. Those babies that do survive often face lifelong struggles, including cerebral palsy, developmental delays, chronic lung disease and vision and hearing loss.
