LIIVF’s “Every Baby’ s Beautiful” Pageant Parade Video

When I was doing IVF, one of the things I focused on when I’d get discouraged was the annual Long Island IVF reunion. It was my dream to get to that picnic with my little miracle. Some day, I vowed, I’m gonna get there.

In the summer of 1998, I got my chance and it was every bit as exciting as I’d imagined it’d be. Back then, all babies were still invited. It was a barely manageable crowd due to the years of successful baby-making. They used to bring in a crane or cherry-picker fire truck just to be able to get a photo of the crowd of families.

These days, they unfortunately have to limit the reunion to the most recent “class” of babies born through the program. So they decided to make it an exciting outing for the little attendees.

Check out the footage of LIIVF’s littlest wonders and their beaming parents at the recent reunion luncheon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ODaCHJsypk&feature=youtu.be

Have you been to a reunion yet? If so, how was it? If not, does the thought of it keep you going in rough times?

Long Island IVF’s “Every Baby’s Beautiful Pageant Parade”-MOVED TO RAINDATE!!

At Long Island IVF, we love reunions. We love seeing the most recent batch of our beautiful babies every year at this time. But we’re not fond of the rain…

IN LIGHT OF THE FORECAST, WE’VE ALREADY DECIDED TO MOVE THE REUNION AND PAGEANT PARADE TO THIS WEDNESDAY, MAY 23, 2012.  PLEASE HELP US SPREAD THE WORD BY SHARING THIS ON YOUR FACEBOOK.

We wish we could have a reunion with ALL of our babies at once. But when you think of the sheer volume of children …many young adults now… conceived since we brought Long Island its first IVF baby shortly after our founding in 1988, well we’d need a super big place! And the Nassau Coliseum is probably taken!

So, since every baby’s beautiful at Long Island IVF, we decided it’d be fun to hold our first “Every Baby’s Beautiful Pageant Parade” for the boys and girls born through IVF in 2011. That is, of course, as long as it doesn’t rain on our parade! None of the Toddlers and Tiaras competitive nonsense here! Just a fun little stroll…or roll…down the red carpet! Every baby’s a winner!

Please come down with your little miracles and show off! This is what it’s all about…celebrating the life of your little miracle and your dream come true.

And be sure to check in on the Long Island Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/longislandivf before you head on over on Wednesday if the weather looks bad. Updated information will be there if it gets postponed again. And while you’re at it, why not just “LIKE” our Facebook page if you haven’t already?!

Here’s the scoop:

What: LIIVF’s “Every Baby’s Beautiful” Luncheon and Pageant
Where: Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, Area “B,” Jericho Turnpike, Woodbury, NY 11797 (Across from the Fox Hollow Inn)
