This book series was inspired by Charm to bring understanding and joy to families of premature births. During the journey of premature growth, there are many ups and downs and much more confusion and unknowing. My older children, many times, did not understand the happenings surrounding Charm and it is my hope that these books help fill the gaps in children's understanding of preemie babies.
Charm was born on July 24th 2018, at 24 weeks and 4 days gestation, after the loss of a previous premature birth ending at 22 weeks. I spent five long days in the hospital on bedrest, in an attempt to stop premature labor, however, Charm made her grand entrance by way of emergency C-Section. The entire pregnancy, she had been head down but flipped breech once labor was active, giving her the name Mermaid. Charm spent a total of 97 days in NICU before being released to come home with oxygen dosing. She has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy but her strength is limitless!!
