Every year 1 in 8 babies are born prematurely. Many will be to sick and to little to go home. During the month of November people across the world will be blogging to educate others about the risks of premature labor, premature birth and the risk associated with being born early.
On September 21st 2005 our lives changed when our little baby was born 15 weeks early. I was not on any high risk checklist. I was not at risk for delivering early. I had prenatal care and I didn't do drugs. But still, our world was rocked with the unexpected turn of events which changed our lives forever.
Tyler survived his early birth and was released on Dec. 23rd, 2005. One day before his due date. Though he has complications as a direct result from his prematurity and we are faced with life long disabilities, we see miracles every day.
