AJ's Story and Premature Babies

This is a video montage that we put together in 2005 on the occassion of AJ's dedication at our Church, New Zion Christian Church.

We were recently reminded of this video and the statistics that are seen at the beginning of it. Indeed, these statistics are sobering; however, in the three years since we gathered these statistics the number have only gotten worse.

This video demonstrates the miracles in the early stages of AJ's life. It is also a testament to the power of prayer.

The reason I have decided to share this video again is that I am continuing to try and drive interest in the epidemic of premature births in preparation of the March of Dimes' March for Babies campaign.

The March of Dimes is spearheading the fight against premature birth and its effects on these small miracles. I shudder to think where AJ might be without the vital research that was funded by the March of Dimes.

Please consider helping these babies by either joining Team AJ in this year's March for Babies or by sponsoring Team AJ.

Ok Katie, that's nothing compared to what you are going through. Reading about your family reminds me daily just how blessed I am.
