Wednesdays for Wyatt

Join in our fight for Wyatt!!
It’s official... Today is our very first post for Wednesdays for Wyatt! It’s quite simple to participate. All you have to do is copy and paste this post on your blog, and come go to Danielle's blog to link up with MckLinky! Once you do that, your all set to win this first ever Wednesday’s for Wyatt giveaway. Let make this a huge success, shall we?
Here is a brief story of what we are fighting for (copied from Danielle's blog):
"Our son Wyatt was diagnosed with a fatal condition at our 18 week ultrasound, but chose to carry him to term. We waited to meet our son with love, all the time praying we would get to see him alive.
On June 1, 2009, Wyatt made his way into the world by c-section. To our amazement he had a faint heartbeat and was breathing! He died two minutes later, but I’ve clung to the two minutes my son and I breathed the same air since his passing.
Upon calling to get a copy of Wyatt’s birth certificate, I found out he was listed as a stillborn. You would assume it was a mistake (like I did), but there was no mistake. According to the definition of live birth in Tennessee my son was not “alive enough” to be deemed a live born baby. His two minutes of life has gone unrecognized by my state, and I intend to change this piece of legislation so I can solidify the validity of my son’s short life.
Wednesdays for Wyatt was created to help spread awareness for a law that needs to be changed, as well as to generate more traffic to my petition. So if you’re reading this, thanks for taking the time to help our family!
We are currently up to 1,253 signatures. Hurray! We’ve made it over my initial goal of 1,000 signatures, and now I’m dreaming big! You think you can help me get 5,000 signatures by Thanksgiving? I bet you could, and I hope this Wednesdays for Wyatt helps out tremendously. Post this to your blogs, facebook, myspace... wherever you can think of. I can’t wait to see how many more signatures we receive from this. I have a great feeling!
The contest will only be open today. You have until 11:59 pm to post this on your blog and come back here to link up with MckLinky in order to qualify for this Wednesdays for Wyatt giveaway. Good luck everybody and thanks for participating."

Hi Kimblery,
I am not sure if you remember me, but I went to Valdosta State and was a phi mu. I was only there for a year...anyways, Stacy ball is following my blog and I stumbled across yours and read a little about your journey. I just wanted to let you know how sorry I am about your situation. It's really crappy and no fun at all. I am afraid that my husband and I might be on a similar path, but are too scared to go to the dr. to find out anything. So you are light years ahead and doing what is good for you. I pray that everything works out for y'all and that in the future you can have kids. Keep blogging about it because it definitely helps others:)
