Prematurity in the Spotlight

Did anyone watch The Voice?

It's one of our favorite shows here. And you can bet we were tuned in Monday night for the premiere.

If you didn't watch (or maybe you did) and are wondering what that has to do with Preemies. One of the contestants shared his story about the loss of his twins at just 5 months gestation. To say that his story hit home was an understatement. I could see the tears in hubby's eyes and knew that it hit him hard too. To think, we could have been there. That could have been us.

My heart goes out to that young man and his family, who now have a beautiful baby boy. But that still doesn't  change or take away what happened to his wife/family just a few years back. It just goes to show you that prematurity effect more people then we probably realize.

I give big kudos to the contestant for sharing his story as well as the show's producers for airing it and shedding more light, which will hopefully raise more awareness.

If you did watch it, what did you think of it? Any favorites so far? (And how about Blake and Adam... mmmm.)
