As many of you know, Emily was born three months early, weighing one pound, eight ounces. She spent 67 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Today, Emily is a happy and healthy toddler who is walking and starting to use jargon. She makes me proud each and every day. I am very blessed to be her mom.
I've been keeping Bentley's Preemie Blessing a secret for a long time, but realized that the book may be helpful to other preemies who are learning about their NICU journey. It may also be appropriate for young children with a brother or sister in the NICU, as well as family and friends who are interested in learning more about premature birth.
Copies of Bentley's Preemie Blessing (ISBN: 978-0-9915554-0-6) are available at online retailers, such as amazon.com. I hope to release an electronic version later this summer.
I would like to thank each of you for reading the Preemie Blessings blog and its other social media channels. Thank you also for your curiosity about my secret. I value each of you and appreciate all of the great guesses that you made. I hope you are not disappointed.
Given the interest in my secret, I will be giving away an autographed copy of Bentley's Preemie Blessing. Entry details will be made available next week! Please check back at Preemie Blessings for more information.
