Joel Brens of Aurora, IL. became Dad in May of 2010 to their son who weighed 3lbs. 6oz. He was 7 weeks premature, a "Preemie". Currently, Joel works part-time in the food service industry. After two different at-home daycares that didn't meet his family's needs, Joel and his wife decided he would stay at home to care for their son.

Joel has his passions of community and father advocacy. Six months ago he created Papas of Preemies on Facebook as a support for Dads to share their stories. http://www.facebook.com/PapasOfPreemies

We will learn about the developmental issues of Joel's preemie son, choices with daycare, how the family thrives and how Joel reaches out to other Papas of Preemies.
