THE BACK STORY
(the reason why we have started P4P)
I know how hard it is to go through the journey of having a premature baby. I am a mother of a surviving “twenty seven weeker” twin. This is seen as extremely preterm.
I know how emotionally draining it is, I know how much self-guilt you encounter, I know how your life is completely different not because you are now a parent, but because your parenthood started so different than what is regarded as the norm. And that is why I wanted to give something back. Our journey of having a premature baby is not mine to keep. My pivot point is that all this happened so that the works of God might be displayed. So here I am, with my other two colleagues starting a non-profit organisation “Projects4Preemies”. I need to share the story; I want to help other families going through this. I didn’t really understand what premature babies meant, before I had to experience it first-hand. I founded this organisation to help make this very difficult journey easier.
