Oprah is doing a show on miracle babies

The family in my area that I mentioned earlier that had a 10 oz baby were contacted by Oprah for a show she is doing in May about miracle babies. It was in the local paper since there was an update on her -now almost 3 lbs!!!! They weren't sure if they would do the show but I thought that we may want to flood her with more preE letters since they will be talking about the babies, maybe they will talk about preE too. The guests have not all been booked so there is time!!!

Exposure for any type of issues, such as this is great, I just wish she would address the reasons, etc for the small size. I continue to send Oprah my letter every week...maybe she'll get bugged so much someone will finally call [:)]
