It May be Time to Start Lying About My Age

Yep, January 12th has come and gone again! I’m one year closer to 30 and am officially beginning to dread that number. I have friends who are over 30 and they seem to have survived okay but I’m not sure I can take it. So, if I tell you 5 years from now that I’m 29, just pretend I’m not fibbing. Besides, Kayvan will always be older than me!

Okay, onto the birthday wish! I my friends and family to walk with us in the March for babies on May 6th this year. if you can’t join us, a donation will make that absolutely forgivable.

Why is the March of Dimes so dear to me? To start, my grandmother had polio years and years ago. What many don’t know is that the March of Dimes was founded to cure polio. It was their research and trial vaccine that cured my grandmother and helped her regain the ability to walk. When I went into labor prematurely last year, magnesium stopped my labor and helped me stay pregnant. The knowledge that powered my high-risk prenatal care is courtesy of research done largely by March of Dimes. When Kamran was born at 35 weeks and was in the hospital, the March of Dimes was an invaluable support system for me, Kayvan and Kamran. We don’t really know why my water broke so early but the March of Dimes is researching early preterm labor and the answer to the questions surrounding that issue will help hundreds of thousands women who may one day be in a similar situation to the one I was in. On a larger scale, the March of Dimes and their research helps millions of babies daily and most don’t even know it.

So what do you say? Will you sign up to join us on May 6th?
