Welcome! We are the Wackrow Family: Jonathan, Jocelyn, Hunter (33 weeks), Carter (34 weeks), and Taylor (28 weeks); We are a preemie family. If you are a member of the NICU club, then you know it is one of the most challenging and emotional rollercoaster rides you have ever experienced. It has many highs and lows, far too many a tale to tell.  You probably have heard of the March of Dimes but don't know exactly what they do unless you have had a premature child or children; the March of Dimes helps NICUs and premature babies and conducts vital research to stop premature births.  As parents of 3 premature babies, with Taylor being our most severely premature child, we felt propelled to pay it forward and find a positive way to celebrate our children and others like them. We also wanted our children always to remember their premature roots and embrace any hurdles in life by knowing they were already champions in our eyes. We are a dedicated family to this cause and founded our team, "Taylor Tot," for the March of Dimes in February 2009 while Taylor was in the NICU.

Team Taylor Tot and the March for Babies continue to allow us to "pay it forward" and help others.  Primarily founded to aid our healing, it has become a wonderful part of who we are as a family! It is a beautiful way to celebrate our family and help others every year. Please read more about us and consider joining our team and donating today! Thank you!
