Preemie Prints {Counting Tiny Blessings}

One of the blessings of the internet is that it connects you to wonderful people you'd otherwise never have known.

One such person for me has been Amber Collier, founder of the non-profit organization Preemie Prints.

Preemie Prints offers support and encouragement for NICU families, as well as families who lose infants to prematurity or other complications. They send care packages, make sweet crafts, offer support group meetings, and (one of the coolest things of all!) provide a free professional photo session for babies who are either in the NICU, or are NICU graduates (up to the first year).

Preemie Prints also provides an information blog for NICU parents. I cannot tell you how much I wish I'd been aware of this resource during our NICU experience! Knowing that there are other parents out there experiencing the same things, and having a community of them to share with, is an incalculable blessing.

The Preemie Prints facebook page also provides tons of great and current information on prematurity, treatment options, breastfeeding, etc. Please pass their information along to any friend you may have who could use it!

I am honored to be included as a guest blogger for this wonderful organization. If you head on over there now, you can read my latest post about the blessings of being a parent to a miracle baby.


"There is no doubt in my mind that as parents of preemies, we would have loved to have a full term baby. No NICU, no roller coaster ride of fears and anguish…

It would be fun to grow a giant belly, have a baby the “normal” way, and take them home two days later. 
Yet for whatever reason, God in His infinite wisdom ordained otherwise for us. I am so thankful that He has a purpose in everything He does! 
While the NICU route is far from easy, here are some of the blessings I’ve enjoyed along the way..."
