i wonder...

if babies born at 21 weeks will ever have a chance to survive.

I hope so, I wish they would have 19 months ago.

Today is prematurity awareness day and it has my mind spinning. Just thinking all the what ifs again. I know it doesn't do any good and I know I will never have the answers, but I still think them. I still want to know if there was something that could have prevented my preterm labor. I wish there would have been...

I wore purple today and asked a couple friends at work to do so too for me and my girls...they did. I was also touched that a couple more friends who I didn't mention it to, but read my fb status wore purple too. There was just a handful of us, but they did it for me, for Sophia & Ellie, and that just makes me...happy, I guess.

So the 25 Days of Giveaways is happening and I will get the schedule set up and e-mailed to those of you who are hosting a day as soon as I can, hopefully before Thanksgiving. The first giveaway will be December 1st, so mark your calenders!!


  1. I think (and hope) some day it can happen. Just look at now compared to just 10 years ago. Can't wait for the giveaways!

  2. Oh, Tina, I had the same thought yesterday. If only 21 weeks were possible, we'd both have our girls. Hugs to you.

  3. I hope so, too, Tina. Thinking of our girls...

    BTW, you can count me in for the giveaway if you haven't already, if there's room.


  4. I wonder too, at what point the earliest of babies will be given a chance on the outside...

    I've read a few cases of 21 weekers, but they are few and far between... I wish it were easier, somehow... That we had the technology today...

    It's heartbreaking.

  5. As the aunt to a premie, I hope one day all premies can make a safe arrival.

  6. I hope someday it can happen too <3

  7. Hi Tina... I am just finding your blog from another mamma. I lost my 4th child at 34 weeks in September. Thank you for sharing the beautiful story of your two girls and life afterwards... having living children alongside the loss of a child is a unique parenting experience- to say the least. We are TTC #5 and your story continues to give me hope.... much grace- Leslie
