The Baby Sleep Project

word of month character

I would like to share with everyone a project that was started by one of our students and his mom.  It is called the Baby Sleep Project.  The story is moving, the results amazing and the help that we can give will help others have the same miraculous results. 

I will not tell you the story here, but encourage you to read it for yourself.  I will tell you that it is about a baby born pre-mature, with half of a heart.  The work done on him by the doctors was just unbelievable.  The complimentary work continued by his parents though may have been the difference in his survival. 

The Baby Sleep Project

The Baby Sleep Project is about helping other babies have the same recovery as this story.  With the blessing of the doctors and belief by them that this work done was contributory to his regaining his strength and life, I encourage you to look at this project.  We are trying to reach a goal prior to our young man’s 11th birthday.

All things with balance of course, but I thought you may enjoy the information in this article I found on sources of vitamin D in our food.  Foods that provide vitamin D
