In the past 15 months, we’ve undergone surgery for Sanny two times. It was for a pretty standard procedure for a defect found at birth, but as we went into the Children’s hospital, we were surrounded by children who weren’t so lucky to have a simple outpatient surgery. It broke my heart to see the children, of all ages, and their parents, working through their individual challenges.

That’s why I’m so grateful to partner with The March of Dimes and their sponsor Famous Footwear to bring awareness to their program, “Give Them Tomorrow.” The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health, and they provide lifesaving research, information, tools, and comfort for families with sick or premature babies.  This program is specifically for new mom’s and their babies, to develop research and provide care for newborn babies so every baby can come home.

Becoming a mom and giving birth to a baby comes with so many worries, even if your baby isn’t premature or sick, and I cannot even begin to imagine the pain of not being able to bring my baby home from the hospital. So I’m grateful for foundations who make an effort to ease those burdens and get those babies home.

After surgery, we spent a lot of days at home as Sanny recovered, so having easy slip on and velcro shoes, like these ones from Famous Footwear, were perfect for us.

    I’m so sorry you’ve had this. As the mom of 3 very premature babies, I know the heartache of the NICU. We also have been blessed with positive outcomes, but the worry was there the whole time. I saw families who didn’t. What if my kids don’t come home with me? I’m grateful we have healthy, happy kids, and I’m grateful there are foundations for families who need extra support. This is a topic I feel so strongly about. Thanks for sharing about it.
