"PREEMIE, Lessons In Love, Life and Motherhood" Guest: Kasey Mathews Allen and Kasey Mathews discuss her riveting, honest, and often humorous memoir, PREEMIE which chronicles the journey of one tiny baby's tenacious struggle to hold on to life and the mother who ultimately grows with her. Kasey's journey began in November of 2000 when she thought she had given birth to the smallest baby ever born. Her baby arrived four months prematurely, weighing one pound, eleven ounces. After her daughter was born, she longed for a compassionate woman whom she could share her story with. It wouldn't matter how different or similar our situations were, just to have someone who understood what it felt like to know trauma. From beginning to end, PREEMIE will take you on a journey of hope, as well as finding solutions that apply to our daily lives when the unexpected arrives on our doorstep. ABOUT KASEY MATHEWS Kasey Mathews is a mother of two, one a preemie, and one not. A former elementary school teacher with a Master's degree from Boston College, she led creative writing workshops that inspired hundreds of school-aged children to capture their thoughts and feelings on paper. Kasey was recently honored as a featured speaker at the National Association of Neonatal Therapists Conference in Dallas, Texas
