After watching Extreme Home Make Over on ABC last night I started thinking again about Michael being a baby and with his 6th birthday only weeks away, I figured to put the blog to good use and support a good cause. Here is Michael at three days old. He weighed 3 lbs 4 ounces when born and spent 28 days in the NICU. Luckily, all he needed was time and nutition before he was able to come home to me.
Last night’s family featured on Extreme Home Makeover was a woman who professionally photographed preemies in NICUs for families to have memories, especiallly for those who never got to brring their babies home. She supported the March of Dimes and did photography for them as well.

Each year the March of Dimes has the March for Babies (formerly Walk America) to help raise money for prematurity awareness and research. I have participated every year in one way or another since Michael was born. Here we are in 2006 on the morning of Walk America ready to go with his March of Dimes "NICU Graduate" shirt on.
March for Babies is coming up again, usually in April. Please get involved: walk, support a walker, or make a donation. It is a very worthy cause.
