Name: Jordan Stowe
Preemie Stats: Adeline Marie Stowe was born May 1st, 2013. Now, our whole family has a May birthday. Her mother's is the 16th, and mine the 23rd. She was born at Women's Hospital in Greensboro, NC. Addie weighed an astounding 3lbs 12oz at birth. Aside from needing a CPAP at birth, her only issue was learning to feed and grow in the NICU. She would spend 29 days in the NICU.
Favorite Sports Teams: I am an avid sports fan. My favorites are the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, Carolina Panthers, and the New Orleans Saints.
How you found out about Papas: I found out about Papas through a friend of mine, Greg Cohoon. Him and his wife had a 29 weeker in the NICU as well. He told me about several support groups that helped him the most. Papas Of Preemies was among that list.
What is your role with Papas: I am starting to wear many hats. I am a regular contributor to the blog series. I am also the media director of Papas. I design, edit, and finalize most all videos put together by Papas. I am also an administrator on the facebook page and will be posting helpful resources for parents of preemies.
What things are you doing in your community to support NICU families: Starting very soon I will be volunteering with Women's Hospital through the Family Support Network of Central North Carolina. I am unsure as to what those responsibilities will include, but anything to be able to give back and help support families in the NICU community.
