Birthright Listens to Matthew's Miracle!

Categories: Love, Hope & Encouragement

Birthright International hosted speaker Amy Vawter, the mom who's raising a little boy who wasn't suppose to live.


Birthright International hosted Amy Vawter as a speaker. Amy attended the Birthright International Convention with her husband Aaron, and spoke at the Birthright banquet on June 4, 2016. 

Amy shared her story with Birthright, rather the story of her son Matthew. The story of this incredible family is truly touching. Amy and Aaron walked a difficult path as they attempted to bring Matthew to life. Their little miracle baby is now 8 years old and the light of so many lives. (And cute as a button we might add!) 

We encourage everyone to read Amy's blog and learn more about the story Birthright was so grateful to hear first hand!

As a new parent you we want to arm you with this… a survival guide to kid-focused events (you're welcome)!

A Survival Guide to Kid-Focused Events - Part 1

How to survive the “Random Birthday Party”
You're a good parent, you take the “kiddo” to yet another one of those “bouncy house” birthday party where you are forced into small talk with, well let’s face it, perfect strangers, drinking fruity juice from a box. So your little angel is invited to a birthday party (which is awesome) but you don't know the host parent(s), and your not comfortable leaving your child there alone for a few hours. So, off you go, to the bouncy house/random person's living room/petting zoo/trampoline park.

A Survival Guide to Kid-Focused Events - Part 2

How to survive the “the park”
It's a gorgeous day outside so you decide to take your kids to the park. Perfect! Except for the fact that you can only watch your kids swing back and forth for so long before you go bonkers from boredom. So why not indulge your inner child? Go ahead, get on those slides with your kids, play the seesaw, go for a tire swing but try not to hurt yourself in the process. There is little sense to sitting on the sidelines when there's fun to be had. You may also want to teach your kids how to pump their own legs on those swings so you don't have to stand there giving pushes for hours on end. Curse you, swings!
