Since some of the R.A.O.K. have already recieved their stitch markers. I will post the picture of the stitch markers I made. I took a picture just before they were all sent off. Enjoy! Today my heart was touched by an Angel Laura at knitsforsanity@yahoo.com I am pleased to be part of her Premie Project. I am in fact a mother of a micro/premie. My son weighed in at 1100grams at birth I was 27 weeks pregnant. I was admitted to the hospital when I was 13 weeks pregnant and I remained there till he was born. We were given last rights a few days before his birth since we were not expected to make it. I was hemoraging and blood transfusions were continuous. His lowest weight I believe was 600grams during his stay at NICU. I spent 20hrs a day with him. I remember the day a brutus of a resident decided to tell me my son only had 5% chances of survival. All I can say is God was the only one to make that decision. He came home less than 3 months later a whopping 4 lbs. what a porker, smile! My "peanut" as babies are nicknamed turned 16 this past August. But I am proud to say I was embraced by some awesome nurses and I would love to give back. Thank You Laura!

Hi Cindy-Just a quick note to thank you for the pretty stitch markers! They are great, I needed some big ones. Wow, what a story about your son. I have five children, and the smallest (no. 2 son) was still 6 lbs! LOL! He was a month and a half early, the dr. said he would have weighed 9 lbs. if he had stayed in. Guess I was actually lucky he didn't! He's 19 now, and a really big guy, too. It's funny, we all start out the same, just a little
sprout, and then grow up all different. Sorry for blathering on, guess you just got me started thinking!
bye for now,
Angie

I'm very glad and touched that volunteering for my charity has touched you so deeply. That's my intention. I want my project to touch everyone involved, including the volunteers. Thank you for helping out!

Sometimes I think the best advice one can receive is from herself. Only you know what's best for you. :)

Hi Cindy! I loved to hear about your story, however I'm always sad thinking about what we endure with our preemies. Amazing!
