Circumspect Sundays: Baby Girlz Magazine — Created to Survive. Destined to Thrive.

earthThe virtual world is amazing.  Since I started blogging, I have “met” some awesome people. By way of my blogger friend Ron, who authors Anything Urban, I met Traci Lee, author of Beauty in Rare Form. After reading Traci’s blog, I found out that we are practically neighbors.  I also learned that we share some of the same passions — the written word and GIRlS!

As a mother of three girls, I am consumed with insuring that they receive the education to which they are entitled.  I am more than obsessed with their having the highest self-esteem a woman can possess.  I encourage them to strive for their dreams, their goals.  Their spiritual health is of utmost importance to me.  I try to engender in my three daughters a global view of life.  They are all required to give back — so community service is a must in our household.

With that being said, when I heard of Traci’s online Magazine, Baby Girlz, I was thrilled to see a medium dedicated to “our” girls.

Take a moment to check out Traci’s baby — Baby Grilz:

Nazyia Imani Kellogg

My niece was born Fri­day, August 24, 2007…2 months ahead of sched­ule. You see, her actual due date was Octo­ber 27th. She is a beau­ti­ful lit­tle thing that was born at a very low birth weight — 1lb. 8oz.  As small as some of your hands!

With her entry into the world, we learned some­thing new as we gath­ered at the hos­pi­tal to await her fate.  While wait­ing to see her for the first time, one of the staff nurses turned to us and said:  “The baby will be fine”.  At first, we fig­ured that was some­thing she was say­ing to keep us hope­ful and in pos­i­tive spir­its.  How­ever, she con­tin­ued with: “Do you know what you guys have? You have a Black GIRL.  She has the high­est sur­viv­abil­ity rate of all pre­ma­ture babies no mat­ter race or gen­der”.  Tears welled up.  None of us had ever heard this before.
