    today when i saw the size of her little feet on the drudge report (i know those photos were not from today) i said to myself, it is too soon for that little tiny baby to go home! i am glad they are keeping her a little longer, God bless her.

    I am very interested in this story because of personal experience. My niece also with the same name was born at 23 weeks and 13 oz... ( she was the smaller of twnis and her sister unfortunately did not survive the first night). Our Amelia was given a less then 1% chance of survival. We have similar pictures of her after her birth for instance there are some where my BIL's wedding ring is up to her shoulder with plenty of room to spare.. she also experienced similar setbacks and hurdles in her first few months.. she is now over 2 ( counting from her actual DOB not her expected DOB) and doing incredibly well.. she is our little miracle baby. I now these parents have much yet to overcome and some days will be frustrating but overall this baby is a miracle and will add such joy to their lives.

    What a story. God bless that little girl, her family and her doctors for fighting so hard for her. What a fighter this baby is! May she have a happy, long, and healthy life ahead of her!!

    Opme, that was a beautiful story too. Glad your niece is doing so well!!

    Wow, what a story--both yours and this one. Is your niece very small for a 2-year-old? I guess that she is really much less than that if you go by her expected DOB. :blowkiss:
