Why should your child be recognized as “Preemie of the Year”?
Despite the fact he has been through more medical tests and procedures than most adults he has never stopped smiling and laughing. He is so silly, and such a happy toddler. He loves his baby sister, and is a people magnet with the most beautiful eyes. He is proof that miracles really do happen, and we are thankful every day for him and his health.
Using three or more typical characteristics of a Super Hero, please describe your child.
He is fearless, always eager to try new things. He has swept me off my feet, always there to pick me up when I am down. His smile is infectious. He never gave up hope even when things were bad. He knew we needed him to teach us life lessons, and he bounced into our world happy to spread his joy.
