    Laura,

    Thanks so much for reminding me all that Jennifer and I have to be thankful for, too. The irony of today and Reece going through another series of tests related to her prematurity…In a moment you become aware of prematurity and your life is changed forever. I am grateful for all the gifts it has brought our family and until it is entirely prevented we will continue to fight for our preemies.
