Another inside look from a Preemie Mom

How Preemie Moms Are Chosen by Erma Bombeck Did you ever wonder how the mothers of premature babies are chosen? Somehow, I visualize God hovering Earth, selecting his instruments for propagation with great care and deliberation. As he observes, he instructs his angels to take notes in a giant ledger. “Armstrong, Beth, son. Patron Saint…give her Gerard. He’s used to profanity.” Finally, he passes a name to an angel and smiles. “Give her a preemie.” […]

What it is like to have an early baby

NOTE: Other than grammatical errors, this post was originally written three years ago, the week Aeva came home from 92 days in the NICU. An update is included at the end. My husband had posted all of my Facebook notes that were written from the NICU as everyone requested updates on Aeva’s progress. A popular question, with which I still have a hard time dealing with, was, “how are you doing?” I don’t think I’ve […]

Maybe I’m not going to win parent of the year in any […]

A Preemie Princess- All grown up!

This is kind of a different perspective from most of the posts that I have a read about God’s tiniest miracles.    My name is Shannon Harper and I am one of those millions of miracles, I was born on October 28th, 1984, three months before my actual birth date of January 20th, 1985.  I weighed in at a whopping 2lbs 12oz and was 12 inches long. My Mom was in the hospital with the flu. […]

Can I have my body back now please?

I did not meet my husband until I was 35 years old, and we were married when I was 39.  At my wedding, I had amazing abs, shoulders and yes, my butt was pretty stellar for a 39 year old. And the most important thing, my butt and thighs were not merged into one.  You could tell where my butt ended and my thighs began.  Not anymore…I’ve been caught with a case of uni-butt. Keep in […]
