Living Miracles Stories of Hope from Parents of Premature Babies


Twenty-two engrossing stories of babies born prematurely, written by those who felt the agony and the elation the most--their parents.

In painstaking and heartfelt detail, these parents shore their ordeals: their fears, their joys, the stories of where they turned for help, their tips and most important, their triumphs.

Meet babies like:
Samuel Warren, who was born at 1 pound 8 ounces when his mother went into preterm labor
Bo Smith, the miracle baby born at only 8 inches long after his mother suffered an antibody disorder
Sara Stomseth, born at 1 pound 15 ounces before modern advances in meonatology and giving no chance of living
Ryan White, the ultimate proof that parents should never give up hope

Living Miracles includes a complete glossary of premature-baby medical terms and is organized by the weeks of gestation of the baby at birth from 23 to 36.
