Johnny was born on July 6, 2017 at Dupont Hospital in Fort Wayne, IN. He was born at 31 weeks and was 2lbs 9oz. When he came into the world, his Dad and I were scared beyond words. I didn’t get to see him for 24 hours and I remember the first time going in to see him, I asked his Dad where the book “Muddy Paws” came from…he said he wasn’t sure…The next day, another book arrived…and by this time, we were both curious, so we asked his nurse. She told us the story behind Kate’s Kart and we couldn’t believe the generosity behind it. We had a 52 day NICU stay and accumulated 30 books. We can’t thank Kate’s Kart enough for providing us with a new book to read to Johnny just about every other day or so. Johnny enjoys being read to and I’ll make sure to share the story with him when he’s older.
