A story of premature birth and the NICU roller coaster

The birthday was a success

I was able to get through my sons first birthday with out crying…the entire time. It was amazing and a fun time of celebration. I ordered special cookies for the party and my friend surprised me with a cookie for Saif too. It brought a tear to my eye, followed by complete happiness. He was officially a part of his little brothers birthday. Thanks Tiffany Walters, the cookies were fabulous. Also, my sisters made the day awesome. They made the little cakes and food for the party. My nephew Sam was born one month early almost exactly to the day. He shared in the birthday festivities with his best buddy Zain(my son). We are lucky to have a cousin so close in age and they live close by. All in all I am grateful and blessed, thank you God for sending me my boys.

New and improved pics of my angel

I saw a post going around facebook of a father asking for pics of his angel without the tubes and wires from the hospital. He said all her pictures were from the hospital. The folks who helped him were amazing and did a fabulous job. My friends helped me find the link to reddit.com where he asked the favor and several people helped. I did the same as I had been hoping for this for 3 years but didnt think I could get this done. Check out the before and after pics. I also added filters to the pics that were done.

Please donate to bliss this holiday season, a worth while cause

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, please donate to Bliss and help babies and their families have something to be thankful for. All proceeds go directly to Bliss. I started a fund in my son Saifs name to help keep his memory alive and to do something to help families and babies in need. Babies are sometimes born too soon, too small and too sick.

Please consider signing Saif’s guest book to show your support, lighting a virtual candle for him (only 10 British pounds or the equivalent in your currency) or making a donation to the Precious Star Fund named in his memory. All contributions made to this fund go directly towards Bliss helping the truly innocent and vulnerable and supporting their families through times of great hardship and anxiety.

To contribute to/visit The Saif Bashir Nihlawi Precious Star Fund, please go to: http://bliss.tributefunds.com/fund/Saif+Bashir+Nihlawi/showFund/
