  1. I was bored 2 months early and I was only. I had to stay at the hospital 48 weeks my mom told me

  2. Stories like this warm my heart, probably because my story is similar.

    I was born at 24 weeks, weighing 1 lb 2 ounces. At the time, I was the smallest baby born at that hospital. Was given a 10% chance of survival and stayed in the NICU for 98 days. I was so small that my Dad's wedding ring could fit loosely around my arm and my were smaller than a tiny paperclip.

    I just turned 23 and am in nursing school, hoping to one day be a neonatal nurse and give back to families the same way the nurses and doctors gave everything for my family and I. I can't wait to someday give families hope!

  3. My son was born at 7 months old. He weighted 1 kilo 2.2 lbs at birth and his weight went to .8 kilo 2 lbs. His mom visited him every day in the hospital in Manila Philippines. He came to live wirh me and his mom and sister in the US at age 11 months. He had his 17 th BD today and he is big strong and healthy and like most children spending too much time avoiding school work. He was in the hospital for 2 months my total cost for his birth and care was about 5,000 USD. Less than the insurance deductible if he was born in the US at a money pit hospital.

  4. I was born 3 months early at 26 weeks and and weighed 1lbs and had to stay in the NICU but now I’m 10 and perfectly healthy they literally put me in a zip lock baggy idk u but they did I swear

  5. And ppl think they dont deserve to have rights and arent human at this gestation so sad… my daughter was born 4 weeks acywe this baby's gestational age and she is human and could feel pain and had all the same parts as we do but like other babies 100 more bones then adult humans

  6. Why bring up abortion? Like, the baby is a miracle her parents wanted a child they didn’t abandon her they have their baby that they wanted because they were at the point in life were they wanted a child and they got it thru all odds like ??
