Fight For Preemies Day

Max entered the world when he was 31 weeks and 6 days. In addition to his prematurity, he was born with the eColi gram rod negative virus. He was not expected to survive.

He's a miracle.

November is Prematurity Awareness Month and today, Nov. 17, is Fight For Preemies Day. Please please please visit here to see what you can do to help these little guys and girls. I pray for the day that every premature baby can have Max's miracle ending.

UPDATE: Our boy took his first steps on his own today! He was very proud of himself and his mom, of course, got teary eyed. There's no turning back now!

i came across this and your baby Max is an inspriation to me. I had a premmie Baby last year, born at 24 weeks weighed 1pound 9oz, she died after 4 hours of life. And now im pregnant again and at 30weeks Im having trouble with preterm labor but the doctors are doing thier best to keep her in. So far so good. I contract anywhere from 5-7 an hour and this has been going on for weeks. I dont know how much longer she will stay in. But seeing your son gives me hope. I dont want to bury another baby. Good luck and congrats with Max
