Join Us in the Fight for Preemies

I remember the moment I found out I was pregnant with each of my children. It was a moment filled with overwhelming joy and tears of excitement, yet one of worry. It was a worry like no other and one that stayed with me until the day they were born. I wanted my babies to be completely healthy, growing like they should and making it full term. If you are a mother, I know you understand. Therefore, I know you have compassion for mothers whose children do not make it full-term.

Premature birth is the number one killer of newborns and more than half a million babies are born too early each year. Those premature babies who do survive are often disabled for life. So as part of a national effort to save babies from premature birth, the March of Dimes has declared the month of November - Preemie Awareness Month.

What can you do to help? By visiting our website ( during the month of November and clicking on the Preemie Awareness Month “ChipIn!” button in the bottom right-hand corner, you can donate and support a cause bigger than yourself. You can play a part in saving a precious child’s life and a mother’s heart. At the end of November, 100% of the funds raised will be donated to the March of Dimes.

Not only will contributing to such an amazing cause lift your spirits, but it will also enter you in a drawing to WIN fabulous prizes from our current awesome sponsors. Donate and you could WIN:

A fantastic all weather WooBee blanket ( – my most favorite blanket ever!

A FREE session fee and 8x10 with Heather Owens Photography

Keep watching as our list of sponsors is expected to grow. Also, I understand that not everyone will be able to donate. However, I (and the unborn lives) would greatly appreciate it if you could help spread the word and pass this on to others.

Thank you in advance!!
