Why should your child be recognized as “Preemie of the Year”?
Because she is my little Angel and I feel that if she didn’t come along then their would be no telling where I’d be at today. She has really switched my life around and made it a better place and caused me to be a better parent.
Using three or more typical characteristics of a Super Hero, please describe your child.
When my daughter was born at 35 weeks, we knew she was a strong fighter right off because she was put on the vent right after she was brought into this world. Then 6 hours later she was off it and on regular oxygen, and then 21 days later she was home.
What advice do you have for future NICU parents?
Remember to stay strong and to never to give up on your baby because only God has that power not the doctors.
