“Hope is not blind optimism,
It’s not ignoring the enormity of the task ahead,
Or the road blocks that stand in our path;
It’s not about sitting on the sidelines or shirking from a fight.

Hope is that thing inside us that insists,
Despite all the evidence to the contrary,
That something better awaits us
If we have the courage
To reach for it, work for it, and fight for it.” ♥

– Barack Obama




Happy World Prematurity Day!

Happy World Prematurity Day to my favorite micro-preemie, Miss Nyana Rose!

Adventures Of The Sunshine Brigade

From the March Of Dimes website:

  • In the United States, 1 in 8 babies is born prematurely.
  • Worldwide, 13 million babies are born too soon each year.
  • We’re working to address the crisis at home and abroad.

“Honor the million babies worldwide who died this year because they were born too soon, and the 12 million more who struggle to survive. November 17 is World Prematurity Day and when we focus everyone’s attention on the serious problem of premature birth.
