A Valentine Wish!

This year is quickly slipping by. We have already made it to the February! And of course, February wouldn't be complete without Valentine's Day.

For us, my husband and I, our "Valentine" continues to grow and blossom before our eyes each day! She is six..going on 16! Braleigh is excelling in school, performing above grade level in reading and math and loving school as a whole. I volunteer in her classroom at least once a week and it amazing me to watch each child, their different personalities and how they interact with each other. Braleigh is a friend to all, quiet, sweet and very helpful to her classmates. I am so proud of her!

From our family to yours - Happy Valentine's Day!

Hopefully, this Valentine's Day will be wonderful for you and your new "Valentine". Be sure to give the newest member of your family an extra hug, extra kiss and tell them how special they are. And...don't forget to tell the rest of your family how much you love them and appreciate all of their love and support during this time in your life.

Have a great week!

P.S. Please be sure to remember baby Brayden as we posted a few days ago. Hopefully, by Valentine's Day, he and his mom will have milestones to share with family and friends.

A Grandmother's Prayer Request

Preemie Proud received this prayer request this morning. Please add this infant to your prayer list.

Two weeks ago on January 23rd, my daughter, Lori had her baby 3 months early due to preeclampsia. The baby, Brayden, weighed 1 lb. 10 oz. He is still with us but has had to have two blood transfusions because of low white blood cell counts. He now weighs 1 lb. 14 oz. but is having difficulty breathing and is on a cpap machine. Please add Lori and Brayden to your prayer list. Thanks, -Maureen
