day 11 - your cord blood donation!

You received your first certificate in the mail today!

Before you were born, your father and I made the decision to donate the blood from your umbilical cord the the cord blood registry. It is a wonderful cause where your cord blood is used to save the life of another child or for research. It was a simple, free procedure where the doctor who delivered you extracting the blood from your cord (after you were born and detached!) and then drawing my blood for tests.

Today you received your certificate thanking you for your wonderful donation!
