World Prematurity Day

Today is the first-ever World Prematurity Day and Jossie's 10-month birthday to boot. A few facts from the March of Dimes:

  • 1 in 8 babies are born prematurely.
  • Worldwide, 13 million babies are born too early each year.
  • Each year, 1 out of every 13 babies will die from being born too early.
Jossie was born January 17, weighing 3 lb 6 oz.
We were in Prentice's NICU for 22 days.
Between today and January 17, Jossie's first birthday, we are raising funds for the March of Dimes in honor of our strong girl. Please consider making a gift of $5, $10, $25 or more if you are so inclined, to Jossie's fund.

Jossie is 10 months and 18 pounds today.
Thank you!
