All Babies Are Born To Do Something Great! #ImBornTo #MoDSquad
I’m teaming up with the March of Dimes and The Motherhood to make sure every baby gets the chance to do something great. This is a sponsored post but all opinions are 100% mine.
That day. That day I found out I was going to be a father. It makes you think. You start to dream about all the things you’ll do with that adorable little baby. Then you go farther and think about what they will look like, what their accomplishments will be, how much you will love them and the list goes on. Each day my son still surprises me! I’m so thankful for that little face! You know they were created to do something special and unique! Every baby deserves the same chance! I love how The March of Dimes helps each one to do just that!
It’s really the best time of your life. Sometimes, it’s the most scary time in your life too. Especially if your baby is born early. The current challenge is that one baby is born prematurely every minute and approximately 72 children die each day before reaching their first birthday. This statistic was really sobering to me. That’s why I’m making it a priority to support the March of Dimes, especially this Father’s Day.
“If you were born within the last 75 years, you are a March of Dimes baby! We’ve really truly touched every person who has been born in the last 75 years whether you knew it or not! “
Did you know? You’ve benefited from the work of the March of Dimes if you or someone you care about:
- Received the polio vaccine.
- Took a prenatal vitamin with folic acid while or before becoming pregnant.
- Received an APGAR score immediately following birth.
- Was born prematurely or has a premature baby.
