Creating Children and Young Adult Stories, Armed with Imagination and a Pen

JaMonkey Liked the Nutts

on April 21, 2012

Here’s another review from blogger, Meghan, who enjoyed reading The Nutt Family:  An Acorny Adventure to her little JaMonkey daughter.  You can check out her review here.  Meghan also had a premature daughter born with SVT at 32 weeks.  Thankfully she has recently been able to being her littlest JaMonkey home.  We continue to keep her family in our prayers.

I know all too well what it is like to have a premature baby since my son was born at 4lbs 13oz at 32 weeks and 5 days.  He had to remain at the hospital for 3 weeks before he could come home.  It is heartbreaking to leave the hospital and see all the other mother’s getting discharged with their babies and not being able to take your little one home.  It was a struggling time, but I also met mothers of other preemies who were much smaller and had many more challenges that I was facing so that put things into perspective for me.  I don’t know what it must be like to have a baby with SVT, but I hope Meghan and her family are surrounded with love and support.

In the United States 1 in 8 babies is born premature.  The March of Dimes is working to address this issue at home and abroad.  To learn more visit the March of Dimes here.
