This is my niece DURRAH ‘AFIYAH. She was born 2nd Oct 2013 @ 28 weeks – 1.45kg. My brother Rizal and her wife Rafiza spent 48 days in the hospital seeing Durrah every day at least once a day, despite caring for their other three lovely princesses. I know it was very difficult, but thanks Allah they manage to overcome all the difficulties. They finally got to bring Durrah home and Durrah has been home for the last 2 weeks. Please pray for Durrah to continue to grow and mature. On behalf of my family, we send out prayers to all the other babies and their families too. Love: Mamalong from Malaysia

McKinley was transported to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta on January 14th due to a bowel perforation, a side effect from indocin (sp?) treatments for a PDA.She had a pin-rose drain put in her lower belly to help drain off the gases. The drain was removed on the 26th. On January 28th she had to have PDA ligation surgery to close off the PDA. All this while her brother was in a hospital an hour away. She was transported to be back with Brantley on February 27th. Brantley had to have two rounds of decadron steroid treatments for his lungs, and on February 19th was diagnosed with NEC. Our little miracle babies have been such fighters. They have had a long journey in the Nicu so far and are not out yet. Both still on C pap and have both now been on full feeds and no pic lines or iv fluids in a couple of days. My baby girl McKinley has another eye exam this week because her blood vessels in her right retina are torqued and not growing straight like they should be.

This is Eden Alivia. She was born at 32 weeks on 1/7/2013. She weighed 3lb 10oz, and was 17.5 inches long. She is the baby sister of micro preemie RaeLynne Ruby Lee who was born at 26 weeks on 11/14/2008. She weighed 1lb 14oz and was 11 inches. She is now 4 years old! :) (her pic is included too, her preschool pic! :) )Eden is currently in the NICU at Nationwide Children's Hospital. She is not requiring any O2 or IV support. She is taking her EBM feeds by NG tubes. We are hoping to be home in a few weeks! Thanks for your prayers! This is my first daughter Piper Dawn Lang. She was born to her preemie mother herself on 10/30/12 at 29 weeks exactly weighing 2lbs and 14 3/4in long. She is still in NICU but making amazing progress and acting as if it doesn't even phase her. We are praying for her to be by Christmas.
Attached is a picture of my little Sweet pea. Her Name is Annalynn Joy. She was born on 9/30/12, 1lb 7oz and at 24.4 weeks. She is now 34 wks (2 months and 2 weeks). She has been through a lot, she is on a high freq. ventilator, She has a PDA, little holes in her brain, and an ostomy for stool. Right now we need prayers because she is in kidney failure. She is not urinating in to her diaper and some where a couple weeks back the found that she has a connection between her stool ostomy and her bladder or kidneys because she has urine coming out into the ostomy bag. Her lungs are on low setting and she is down to 21% oxygen (or room air) through her vent. Also her last echo showed that her PDA is smaller. Please pray that her kidney failure reverses, she comes off the vent and her PDA closes, so the only surgery she will need is to reverse her stoma. Praying for a miracle and so many have happened already. She is our first child and was born 10 years after we were told we could not have children. We praise God for our little miracle that He has provided for us and I can't wait to see what kind of this God has in store for this miracles life and ours. He has done so many thing in our life, friends , family and even strangers who have heard our story. Thank you for letting share a bit of the Miles.

Jason Christopher Diaz was born on October 25, 2012 at 1lb. 7oz. He's lost and gained a few ounces since then. He currently resides in an incubator in the NICU. He has had complications since his birth but nurses say he is feisty and a fighter. All the nurses take very good care of him and love his eyelashes. He is on a breathing ventilator because his little lungs need help to produce oxygen to breathe. He has had a few blood transfusions since he cannot produce enough blood. He's also had a procedure called an abdominal drain because his intestines have a leak, if that doesn't prove successful he will need major surgery. We ask that you keep young Jason in your prayers as we do the same.
this baby will be my fifth grandson, I have no girls so he will also be my fifth grandchild...that does not make him any less special to me though, he is my only sons first child. he is not here yet, mommy is in the hospital on complete bed rest at almost 26 weeks, her water broke at 18 weeks and we are thankful for God having kept him with us these past 7 weeks and are praying he stays put as long as possible. mom is bleeding and having pretty regular contraction, she is dilated I believe to 3 already and still leaking fluid, although the drs say there is enough for him to grow, I should say adequate enough. his heart rate drops and rises fairly often but so far it only is staying down for a few seconds up to a minute so they are leaving him in mommy...we are praying for 1 more day in the tummy every day. and even though hunter cole is not born yet, drs say he could come anyday. please keep our hunter in your prayers so he can continue to grow and be big and strong like his mommy and daddy...

I am asking for payers for my twin grand children London Dion and Lauren Dior. They were born September 24, 2012 and they were not due until Jan. 1, 2013. London, my grandson, came first and weighed in at 1 lb, 9 oz and 2 minutes later, his twin sister Lauren weighed in at 1 lb, 3 oz. Lauren was really fighting for her life. It was a touch and go for a minute. She got better, they lowered her oxygen, and then London decides that he needs more oxygen so they turned his up. They both have needed blood transfusions and were doing so well. We got word last night that they both are bleeding on the brain and the doctors say that there is nothing they can do, so all we have to hold on to is our faith and constant prayers. The bleeding is just a "trickle", as described by the doctors. I guess that would be a stage 1, and we don't want it to progress any further. Please keep my grand babies in your prayers.
Here are pictures of London and Lauren. London is facing to the right and Lauren is facing to the left.
Charlie Alexander Coffey, He was born on August 7th 2012, with his twin sister Madilyn, 12 days after birth Madilyn passed away due to infection.
Charlie was born weighing 1lb 5.9 oz with little hope of survival. it has been 58 days since he was born and he is now thriving, he has had two rounds of dexamethasone, a steroid to help his lungs.
He was diagnosed with BPD, and RDS, so he needs any extra help he can get! He was also diagnosed with MRSA in his trachea, that is why in the picture he is not with any nurses.
He now weighs 3lbs 3.5oz and is eating 25mLs every 3 hours. There is also a picture included from when he was first born and pictures of him now.
His most resent struggles have been some blood in his stool, but we ruled out any chance of NEC, he also has a grade 3 brain bleed. But he was lucky in ROP. He has grade 0 ROP in zone two of both of his eyes.
He was born with a PDA which he still has.
The NICU nurses have been extremely helpful in our long journey!
Our due date was November 26th. So we still have a few weeks to go! But we are going strong as ever thanks to the nurses and doctors who have helped us along the way!!

Prayer of thanks from a grandme
I would like to just say ?Praise the Lord? for I look at all these precious ones and remember the day back 13 years ago when my daughter delivered our precious grandson, Brandon Eisenman on June 23rd at UAB in Birmingham, Alabama. He weighed in at a mere 1 pound 6 oz. and was 12 in. long. As we struggled to believe God to touch his life?.we watched day by day how he improved and gave us hope. Now he is a teenager and it is so hard to believe. Let us never forget?how the Lord has brought this little boy into being quite a young man. Even though he is small, yet not too small, in his eyes he can do anything any other boy can do. He has determination like I have never seen. We always try to remind ourselves what the Lord did during that time and what the Lord is still doing in his life. We tell him all the time..?boy you are a miracle..? I just felt led to write this for encouragement to those going thru this now. Look up?for there will be your strength in the days to come?look up!! May the Lord bless each and every one of you with such a miracle in your life?for the little one you see?is a miracle in your life?treasure every moment!
1 pound 10 ounces, born 1/22/10 at 28 weeks, due date 4/13/10. I went to a high risk appointment and ended up having to deliver via csection 2 hours later due to bad non stress test and the cord blood flow had reversed. He is doing well all things considered. The PDA has closed they believe and he does well breathing now. (he started out needing an oculating vent and nitric oxide) His blood pressure is still unstable and he isnt peeing well. He also has bilateral grade 2 brain bleeds. (My other 2 were micropreemies as well, so its been rough knowing everything that can happen)
Jacob Ly Ho
Our precious little miracle baby boy was born on January 19, 2010 at 27 weeks. Jacob weighed 385 grams at birth by c-section. I had to deliver Jacob early because I had high blood pressure and diabetic. Jacob is fighting for his life to survive in the LAC+USC's NICU, he is now at 1 pound and 3 oz. I feel helpless, I pray to God everyday for him to help him fight through this painful ordeal and that he will be strong, happy and healthy when he gets to go home with us. Please pray for my little miracle precious baby boy Jacob Ly Ho.
Thank you in advance for your kind blessing and prayers

Grant Stephen Walker
Our son is five months old and has spent his entire life in the NICU. He was born at 23.6 weeks, weighing 1 pound 8 ounces on July 26, 2009. His original due date was November 16, 2009. He has had five operations since birth. Overall he has done well, however he has a lingering tummy problem. Every time he starts to feed his stomach becomes distended and he has to stop. He has had NEC and an opeartion to remove the diseased part of his intestine. The surgeons don't think it is because of his intestines. They went in and did exploratory surgery, but nothing was found. His tummy fills with a lot of gas. The pictures I have posted are his first picture and a picture from now. He is 6 pounds and 9 ounces to date.
My grandson Gavin Brock was born on December 05,09. My daughters due
date was 03/08/10. Her husband and her were home for the holidays
visiting Family and Friends. Karra went into labor on December 05
(4months early only 24wks gestation). Gavin was born by emergency C
section at 2:24pm . He weighted 1lb13oz and was 12.4inches long. He is
4weeks old today and we have went through some major ups and downs. Dad
is in the marines and stationed in NC so he had to leave Karra and Gavin
on the 23rd of December. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
This is our impatient & stubborn little Symara (our first born too). She was due Feb 16th, but just couldn't wait. Born Dec 21st at 11:24pm, 8 weeks early. She weighted in at 3lbs 10ozs and 17 1/4in. I was in labor for 13 days, 11 spent in the hospital on lots of drugs trying to stop the contractions. I was so scared for my little girl, still am. Luckily her lungs are well developed, so no ventilator. For the first week she wasn't digesting her food, now at 2wks she is up to 1oz per feeding time. She is a fighter. We spend all the time we can with her. I wish she was home though! As yet we have no idea when she might join us at home.
I understand the fear and worry all other preemie parents out there are going through, I keep you and your littles in my prayers. Thank you for yours.

Now they are both showing signs of brain bleeds and I'm praying for a complete healing. Micah had Geary surgery yesterday. They are very ill and they need your prayers. Pictures are top Micah after surgery and Gabriel. I don't usually include parents but even though out of focus, I just loved the look on Mom's face.
UPDATE and message of hope - Ian James Howard
6 1/2 years ago, I found your website to order clothes for my son Ian James Howard who was born at 28 weeks gestation weighing in at 2lbs 3oz. He was in the NICU for 92 days. We were very lucky in that he never had any problems with brain bleeds, PDA valve closure, or intestinal problems. He only had a slight level one ROP and some Apnea and Bradycardia. By the grace of god and all the prayers it all resolved on it's own and he's now a happy, healthy and VERY smart 6 year old who's in first grade! I just wanted to thank you for your website, all the support and information your provided me at the time and for still sticking by your website and offering support to so many other families with preemies
born 29 weeks gestation birth weight 2 pounds 6 ounces
thanks for any and all prayers, she is my great niece
Zabella Denese Lengel
was born on Oct 24th while i was in a coma because of the H1N1 virus. She weighed 1 pd 9 oz and was 13 1/2 inches long. She is now 2 pds 13oz and is growing bigger and stronger each day
As I was "googling" for information on preemies, I believe the Lord led me to your website.
Our little grandson, Kaiser Ray, was born on December 29, 2009, 3 lbs. 2 oz. about 16 " long. His due date wasn't until March 15th.
Mom had been having contractions for several weeks, placed on medication to keep things under control, then she was told at her last doctor appointment that she had placenta previa, which is life threatening to Mom and baby.
She suddenly starting getting warning signs of bleeding just before midnight of the 28th. Fortunately, Mom researched placenta previa enough to know to get to the hospital immediately. She had checked into the hospital, being told that she would be there for about 6 wks with total bed rest until she delivered and she would not see her 2 1/2 yr. old daughter until she was released. This was devastating for her, but of course, she understood what she had to do.
After being awake all night and part of the morning, she finally dozed off in the afternoon. At 3:00 she was awakened with the feeling of liquid beneath her, which was a pool of blood. In a matter of minutes, she had an emergency c-section and baby Kaiser was born at 3:04. Daddy barely had time to put on his scrubs and get to surgery in time! We thank the Lord that they were at the hospital and not at home when this all happened. If she hadn't gotten into the hospital when she did, Mom and baby wouldn't have survived. Both would have bled out. They have a little 2 1/2 yr. old girl. So just picturing what could have happened if they had been at home.......oh, I hate to even think of it.
So far, Mom is doing well, and possibly will be released today. Kaiser's vitals are good. He was on a ventilator, but is now breathing on his own, and has had some good cries. So praise the Lord, his lungs are getting stronger. He has an open valve in the heart, which they are giving him Tylenol to help it close. I know the road ahead may be long, but we are hopeful and trust in the Lord that this little boy is a miracle and a fighter. He has been blessed to be born into a strong Christian family who continue to grow in the Lord and seeing his miracles in their life is such a blessing for everyone to experience.
Thank you for having such a beautiful website and the chance to share these miracle babies. We are never prepared for a preemie and I started thinking that premature babies must have special needs that a full term baby wouldn't. Of course, as grandparents, we start searching for ways to help provide for those needs, so finding your website is fun and a huge blessing!Your products are beautiful and so sweet.
We appreciate prayers for Kaiser to continue to gain strength and grow into a healthy Christian man. His Daddy, our son, said that God has a purpose for this little guy.
We send our prayers for all the precious little preemies.
She was born Dec 15th at 32 weeks, this is our first baby, she is doing well,
We ask for prayer to keep her healthy and bring her home soon. Thanks love Mom and Dad
Maura Elizabeth and mom Liz
Mom (Liz) had some kind of chest pain and then couldn't breath. They took the baby girl 8 weeks early and she seems fine but Liz was close to cardiac arrest. They are hoping she will respond to meds and be ok, but for now her blood pressure is still high. Maura Elizabeth was born Moday - 32 weeks- weighing 3 lbs., 2 oz., 15 inches. She is doing great so far. Please keep both, but especially Liz (mom), in your prayers.
My daughter was born when I was 25.5 weeks gestation. I had a short cervix and delievered early. I am asking for your prayers for her. She is our first born and we know the joy of the Lord is our strength. It truly has been hard seeing her like this. I too was a preemie. Thank You. I will be praying you all as well.

I almost lost her while pregnant with her at 8weeks. The doctor told me I had Placenta Previa at 25 weeks. March 19th I got really sick and went to the hospital. The doctor told me I had Preeclamsia and low fluid levels as well as baby was not getting enough nutrients and stopped growing at about week 24 or 25. I had c-section on March 20th, 2009. We were told she only had a 30% chance of living, but with prayers from family, friends and many other people and my strong faith and believing in God, she has made it after 58 days in the NICU.

God Bless and keep you all. Please pray for my grandson AnJelo (angel) who was born July 2,09 weighing in at 1lb 2oz in Dallas, TX. He became separated from the placenta at almost 23 weeks gestation.. He is such a fighter. When he was born his first breath was after resuscitation. On 100% oxygen. Underdeveloped in all organs. Bruising from delivery because medicals thought he was stillborn. Grade 4 IVH, brain seizures and totally swollen from blood transfusions (cause he was born with very little fluids). God Bless You AnJelo. Keep fighting precious one. He also has lack of palettes, liver not functioning correctly, and undeveloped lungs. By the grace of God and prayers being said for him he is still here with us 7 days later. On 30% oxygen now with liver problems and also Grade 4 bleeding still. AnJelo is my 3rd preemie grandchild. His sister Zakeia was born 12/05, 25 weeks gestation weighing in at 1lb 12oz. After going through the changes and scares of being born so early she contracted RSV when she was about to leave the hospital. Speech problems are her main areas of concern now. You guys prayed for her health and she is still here with us. Thanks! God Bless you! The other preemie is Stewart born 10/08. He also came to us at 25 weeks weighing in at 2lbs. He went through as much as his older sister without the RSV. I didn't ask for prayers for Stewart (busy taking care of two other babies) but I know you pray for all preemies and he was being prayed for anyways. Thank again! My daughter has another girl Shelene born 12/08 on her sister's birthday who was full term. Praise God!. What a blessing they all are. Please also pray for my grand kids parents Monique and Stewart. Strenght and guidance is needed. Also for their big brother Jamond who is dealing with a very large family after being the only one for 6 years. God Bless you and keep you and your families healthy.

Zuzu - update - I am getting better, little by little each day. I am smiling now, at only 28 weeks, excellent progress my nurse angels say. Please pray me, my whole body, from my pinky toe to the top of my head, but especially for my lungs and swelling on my brain!!!! The doctors say I am truly a miracle. I am feisty and strong, even though I am still only under two pounds. I am doing much better from all your prayers and thoughts...and my mommy's organic breastmilk. I am now 29 weeks old, three weeks in this world! My parents are so thankful that you have been praying for me and sending good positive energy my way. Love, Zuzu Andalou

UPDATE on Adriana Karolina Lopez - She is ready to come home after spending 3 months in the NICU. This will be the first time she ever comes home. She weighs 6 pds 7 oz and is doing good. She has very little bowel as you know so she will be coming home on TPN. She will be getting all her nutrition through her broviac line in her left leg. She will also come home with her iliostomy as well, I am learning to care for her with all of her luggage and needs. She might come home with very little oral feeds just to stimulate her gut. With time we hope her gut will grow and adapt, making it possible to take all off her food by mouth. Although she is coming home she is still in need of your prayers. Please pray that her intestines will work with time. Thank you

He was born at 31 weks 4 days gestation on May 6 2009. His birth weight was 3lbs, 3 oz and he was born 15.5 inches long. When he was admitted, they had to give him light therepy for jaundice for the first 2 days of his life. He hasn't had to have any respiratory intervention and is doing well with feeds and had a normal head ultrasound. The only problem we have is that the doctors are unable to get a regular IV or PICC line in him so he has an Umbilical Vein central line and is not able to move to step down. Please pray for my son, and continue to pray for the rest of the children and families here as I will.

She was born 10 weeks and 2 days early on April 10th, 2009. She weighed 2 lbs 12 oz. This precious baby girl has a long fight ahead but has proved to be strong. Within hours of her birth she had an emergency g-tube inserted, on day 6 of life she had surgery to repair her esophagus and trachea, at exactly 3 weeks she had surgery to repair part of her small intestine and also had a reservoir placed to drain fluid that built up from a grade 4 brain bleed.

16 weeks early. NICU stay 102 days. Got to come home Easter Sunday 2009. His due date was April 25th 2009. He came home early!
Kayden was ventilated for 2 and half months. Was on High Frequency, CPAP, and the regular nasal canula.
Had NEC. Had a drain put in his tummy. It fixed its self. The Drs didnt think he would make it. He did!
He had a PDA ligation. Again the Drs didnt think he would make it. HE DID!
He has gone through so many blood tranfusions.
Went flying through bottle feeding. Never a problem.
My son is now home and doing great. He came home on oxygen and a moniter. He has early signs of ROP. And has to see a pulmonalogist, eye dr., surgeon.
Next month he has to have surgery on his testicles because of a hernia. He is 7 lbs 3 oz now.
This is maybe and probably the biggest challenge you may have to face. But so worth it. Just love them. and work together with your partner.without you both caring and being there things get crazy.I do know that everyone copes and deals with things differenly, But NICU Parents/ Preemie parents, Anything is possible. Just have faith. Pray everyday.
born on Feb 5, 2009 at 1lb 8.5 oz and 33cm long. He has had a long battle of survival. Since his birth he has had several lung issues and digestion problems. He had surgery on Mar 17th and had most of his small intestine removed. He now is recovering and is fighting hard to get proper lung function. He has an ostomy bag right now but will receive more surgery to re attach his intestine again. Gabriel was born at 25 weeks gestation and has shown his Mom and Dad what true strength is made of. He is an inspiration to us all and honestly is a true fighter. He is now 71 days old and looks great!! Included is a picture at 2 days old and another at approx 1 month old. Please pray for our little Angel Gabriel. Thank you!!!!!

2 lbs. 15 ozs Born at 30 weeks DOB 04/14/2009
My niece is due with her 2nd child within the next few weeks. Little Madeline is doing very well but will be small so I was looking for some Preemie clothing. I noticed your Prayer list and wanted to send a word of encouragement.
The niece I mentioned, Stephanie, was a preemie. She weighed in at 1lb 4.5oz and 11.5? long. That was 24 years ago!
She spent months in NICU on a ventilator. This gave her BPD. Back in 1986 they didn?t know how to regulate her meds as well so she was a bit of a guinea pig. At 3 she was sent to the lung institute in Denver and spent a month being evaluated. This did help! She had a GI tube and was on a pump at night until she was eight. By then she had had pneumonia close to 100 times. She started doing a little better as the scar tissue in her lungs decreased. She still had a rough time of it for awhile but was starting to grow some and only be admitted to the hospital 3 or 4 times a year. At 18 she got her first clear lung x-ray! She still has asthma and gets bronchitis or pneumonia several times a year but is living a relatively normal life. She?s quite a site at 8 months pregnant. She is 4?7? and normally about 80lbs. She?s up to 106. The 1st three years of failure to thrive? no longer apply. We have our miracle? God willing each of you will to!

Please pray for our little bundle of joy, Marleigh Sophia. She was born 3/26/09 at 27 weeks gestation, weighing 1 lb 9.6 oz, 13 1/2 inches long. I had HELLP Syndrome, a life threatening obstetric illness with severe liver, platelet and anemic problems, and had to deliver my daughter immediately. She is doing well, breathing with assistance from CPAP Ventilation. She is having some problems with her digestion, and needs some supplemental calories to aid in bone growth. Please share your prayers and positive energy with her, as I will be doing for your babies! This picture was taken at 4 days old. Thank you!
Born 1.21.09 at 1lb 11oz, 25 weeks
Bry'Shaun was born early because all of his needed amniotic fluid leaked out. This caused major damage to his lungs. He was put on a high frequency oscillator and was the smallest baby in the NICU. His lungs were the equivalent of someone who had smoked for their entire lives. We (his parents) even had to discuss whether or not to let the doctors give him steroids, shock his chest or just let him pass if he didn't get off the oscillator. 2 days shy of turning 2 months old, he went on a regular ventillator and I finally held him after he was 2 months old. He is now 4lbs, tolerating food, wearing cloths and is on a CPAP ( like a nasal cannula ) and he is very active and nosey!! He has a heart murmur for which he may have to have surgery and his eye sight has gone from really good to not so great. He's made so much progress but is not out of the woods. Please keep him in your prayers as I will be doing the same for him and the other babies. GOD BLESS!!
(Pics of him at birth and him at 2 months old included)
Born at 24 weeks gestation. Weighing only 1lb 9oz. Doctor says he has grade 4 IVH- bleeding around his brain. Please pray for Evan!

Please pray for Jacob, he was born 01/18/2009 at 23 weeks gestation, 17 weeks early, 1lb, 11ozs, and 13? long. He has had many hurdles but the biggest one is trying to get off the vent tube, they tried several times and each time he only goes for 10-15 minutes and then stops breathing and needs to be intubated again. Next try they will have an ENT specialist there to see what the issue is. He is in good spirits, and very active and aware as you can see in the picture, and miraculously loves to smile.

My little nephew was born at 28 weeks and was doing very well. Unfortunately things took a bad turn and he is now fighting for his life with most of his intestines infected and kidney failure. I'm sending my prayers for the little troopers listed on your prayer page and hope that we can get some prayers for wee Aiden too. Thank you so much for offering this page.
I delivered a 2 pound 2.4 oz. little girl on March 2nd. She is breathing unassisted (a nasal cannula is only used on occassion), but she still has a ways to go. Any prayers are appreciated.
What a great surprise to find you here. God is amazing. Our son
and his wife live in Los Angeles. She?s 31 weeks along and is now in
labor. We are in Michigan. They called yesterday to let us know that
they were in the hospital because she was spotting and dilated to 2.
They just called about an hour ago to tell us that the magnesium had
not been successful to stop her labor. It looks like the baby (gender
to be a surprise) will arrive today. Please join us in prayer for a
healthy baby. Our son and his wife (Ben and Betsy) love the Lord and
serve Him with their lives. They are just resting in His love and care
It?s hard for my husband (we?ll call him Grandpa!) and I (Nana!) to be
so far away. I just want to hop on a plane right now! I did a google
search for preemie clothes and found you. God bless you in your offer
to pray for preemie babies.

I delivered a 1lb 15oz baby girl via c-section on 2/25/09 because I had developed severe pre-eclampsia. She is doing well for her status, she is tolerating feedings, breathing room air, and has her PIC line in. If you have time to pray for her, I would appreciate it.

LeeAnn and Alayna
LeeAnn was born without a rectum, ureatha, and other organs disorganized. 2 days old and they did a colestomy which works well. Only one kidney that wasn't functioning but dr. gave lasix Sat so is working better altho an infection had caused problems. If this kidney does not work the dr said dialysis which is very hard on a baby. These are my great grandchildren, granddaughter has 2 other children. Best dialysis is in Dallas which would mean she would have to be there for a yr without her family. Please pray for God's intervention.
LeeAnn is doing much better in the last few days. The doctors gave her something called Lasiks to help her pee and in doing so it kind of re-booted her kidney. She has been peeing fine and the toxins in her blood have gone down. We
still need lots of prayer that her kidneys continue to work and she wont need dialysis. The doctors are fearful to try dialysis thinking that she is too small. But God is good and what he has planned for her is what we have to look
forward to, what ever it may be!!

3 lbs 2oz at birth
My daughter Kiara Catherina was born 2/22/07 at 27 weeks. She was 2lbs 6oz. This was before your prayer page, but I wanted to let everyone know that we had many friends, family, and even people I didn?t know pray for her. I joined flickr, and was posting her NICU photos that I was taking on a daily basis. Prayer helped her and us through her stay in the NICU. She had almost zero medical interventions, and left around 4 ? lbs. Today, she approaches her 2nd birthday a healthy, happy, and vibrant beautiful little girl. I?m writing to let everyone know that prayer works, and while the plans God has for our children may not be what we want, in our case, she will have a long, happy and healthy life, thanks to everyone who prayed for her, the medical staff at her NICU, and her Maker.

As of today she has gained back her weight to what it was when she was born, 3 lbs 3 oz, and even a little bit more. She is still breathing on her own, has been since she was born, no itubation or even a cannula, and she has even tried breastfeeding the past two days!! And even that is going well, she managed to actually get some milk yesterday and swallowed and everything. The doctors are awesome enough to let me kangaroo with her for about 4 to 5 hours continuously every day, and she doesn't have any bradys or apnea spells when i am holding her. I pray with her everyday, and ask that we get all the prayers we can to help her get big and come home sooner. She is very loved and our entire family would like to see her come home.

I had bradycardia and apnea spells. we found out I have hypothyroidism and need to take synthroid every day til I am 3 years old, then they will check to see if its just a preemie thing or I might have to take it for the rest of my life. I had one infection while there, but made it through. it took me a while to learn to eat from a bottle, but once I learned I liked it, it was a piece of cake. by the time I left the nicu I was 7 lbs 2 oz!! I came home on oxygen and was on 1/16 ltr for only 2 months. I had congenital left ingiunal hernia surgery one month after coming home. I also have to get my hypaspadias fixed in october.

I am a very happy baby and I love my big brother aaron. I love to smile and laugh. my mommy and I would like to let all of you know that all of your prayers have helped us get through the tough times and that we pray for all of you all the time. if you scroll down to the bottom of this prayer page you will see me at 5 days old!!!! please keep the hope, and continue to pray. you go into the preemie world not knowing a thing, and fear the worse, but look at me I am doing so well! god bless all of you!!!!!
I weigh 17 lbs now!!! love aarik titus esteki and family!!!! thank you
Quick words of encouragement from a former preemie who sent this to me recently
I was born at 26 weeks(due to a placenta previa bleeding event) & weighed 2.5 lbs. I then went down to 1lb 12oz and had a collapsed lung (when the mortality rate was 60%), and stayed in the hospital, 3 months, until I was 5 lbs.
I have had a normal childhood without any limitations (normal school progression, played multiple sports) and have grown to become a normal adult with a wonderful wife and family.
I beat the odds back in 1955 and have been on the cardiology faculty at a medical school in Chicago since 1991.
So, my message to hopeful parents and those precious preemies is "never give up!" All those prayers won''t go unanswered... we each have a reason for coming into this world -- whenever it happens.

Wow, i am so touched at the amount of mothers that are going thru this. I felt so alone. I gave birth 9/29/08 to a beautiful miracle boy, Hmari "means fulfilled" @ 1.6oz 12in due date 24wk 2day gestation. So far the NICU has been great, he has a grade 1 IVH and has started his first feeding today. I pray that he is able to tolerate it now that he is 27wks today. I look at him and he just gives me strength, the meaning of his name fits him as he fulfills me. I will pray for the other preemies as i hope they will pray for my little miracle.

Our son Micah Jonah was born on July 7th, 2008. He was only 31 weeks and weighed 3lbs. 11oz. He was due September 8th. On May 31st. I was admitted into the hospital for an incompetent cervix. 1 week later I was discharged home on strict bed rest. I was closely monitored by a home care agency. I would have to check if I was having any contractions by using a device which measure and detects uterine contractions. This device was hooked up to my phone and transmitted to the nurse( like a fax machine) and she would call me back and let me know if I had any contractions or not. This lasted about 2 weeks until on June 24th I started to leak amniotic fluid. I was rushed to the hospital and had to stay there for the remainder of my pregnancy. Micah is still in the NICU. He was moved up to the step up but just the other day he was sent back down because they discovered that he has Necrotizing Enterocolitis. So he''s not able to eat only have IV fluids and is on antibiotics. He overall looks good but we would greatly appreciate all the prayers we can get for Micah and will also pray for all of GOD''s little angels. Thank you and GOD BLESS!!!!

Your page is wonderful, I have been crying reading over it, my son Logan is in the NICU also. You always feel alone, I never realized how many people were out there. Logan was born at 29 weeks and 3 days, which God kept him in for 19 extra days. He wanted out in the beginning of June but they held me off until the 28th of June. He is doing very well. We waited 14 years for this little miracle, and that is what he is. he is my little miracle. Keep Logan and us in your prayers. .
born June 3, 2008. Cash weighed 1 lb. 3 oz. and was 12 1/2 " long. He wasn''t due until September 8. Mom''s water broke on May 15, and they were admitted to the hospital. On bed rest he was able to stay in mommy''s tummy for 3 more weeks. Little obstacles have been part of every day life since his beginning. He is taking up to 12 cc''s now of mom''s milk, sometimes not tolerated so well, his stomach swells up and gives him discomfort. He has had several blood transfusions, and a couple of infections in his lungs. He has been on antibiotics 4 times now. Still on a vent, and needs some oxygen as well. Please pray for Cash and his mom and dad also, it is understandably a difficult time. He is 7 weeks old now. He joins a 4 year old brother.
Hi my name is Liz Dennis. My husband Jeff and I welcomed a baby boy named Brady Ryan Dennis into the world on July 17th 2008. He was born at 29 week gestation. He weighed 1 lb 13 oz and was 14 inches long. My placenta was starting to rupture so they had to do a c-section ASAP. He can out breathing on his own and crying. He is currently at NICU at Saint Mary''s in Richmond Virginia.
They doctor said he has some blood in his brain and maybe some damage. Also they may have to relieve some pressure off his ventricles in his head. Brady is a fighter and has stayed strong since day one. This is our first hurtle we have to get over. I held him yesterday for the first time and Brady told me he would be fine. They have him on different meds and on a ventilator which I am hoping he comes off of by the end of next week. Also I hope he can start eating breast milk by then too.
Please pray for my little Brady and I will do the same for yours.

I went to the hospital with contractions that I had on the friday and the saturday and they discovered her heart rate was dropping and so they did an Emergency C-section and found out that the Cord was wrapped around her neck real tight and they diden''t have much time to get her out. We would have lost her that day had I not gone to the hospital. She truely is our miracle baby. they started her on the bottle yesterday but she was not ready for it. she is having trouble maintaining her body temp and her Heartrate drops all the time which they say is normal for premies of her age. she weighed 4 pounds even and was 17 inches long at birth and she lost down to 3 pounds 12 ounces and now is currently 4 pounds 5 ounces. Please pray for her safe recovery and that she makes it home Healthy and safe and is breathing on her own without the heartrate pits.
born June 27, 2008 and he was nine weeks early. He is in the NICU on a ventilator because he has apnea. He could sure use your prayers. Thank you and God bless you

God Bless
born on June 18th at 24weeks by emergency c section. He is my first baby. He was 12 ounces, 10inches long. For some reason, my amniotic fluid disappeared and he had stopped growing. My husband and I have never had a scarier time. The docotors told us it was unlikely he would even make it out of the OR since they thought he was too small to intubate. He has since surprised them all. At 4 days old, he is now 13 ounces, steady blood pressure and oxygen, good urine output, and fiesty as can be! His lungs are clear, his brain ultrasounds are normal. He does have a PDA, but so far it isn''t affecting him too much so they are waiting to fix it. He is our little miracle and if it weren''t for prayers of the many around us, I know we wouldn''t have got this far. Please pray for us and God bless you for having resources like this for those of us who have never experienced anything like this.
Sibel and Deniz
My sister gave birth to twins on May 24th at 31 weeks. My niece Sibel had IUGR and was in distress so they had to deliver early. She weighed 1 lb 6 oz at birth and is now 1 lb 14oz. Her brother Deniz was much larger and born at 4 lbs and is up to 4 lbs 12 oz. They are both doing well but since they are still tiny please keep them in your prayers.One thing that we are very thankful for is the doctor had my sister get steroid shots to help develop their lungs faster, both babies are off the CPAP and doing well, we just need them to grow and gain weight.

Jaxson Ray -UPDATE!
Born at 1 lbs, and 25 weeks on Jan. 20th... he is nearly 5 months old, non adjusted age. He had a bi-lateral hernia surgery, and Laser ROP surgery. He spent 125 days in the NICU. Was released at 120 days, and we had to go to the ER that night, we found out two days later, prior to his release, he caught RSV. So.. he had to stay a few more days... making his total of 125 days. He is doing amazing and is now 7 lbs and 2 oz, and almost 19 inches long ( Once smaller than a beenie baby). His vision should be fine... and he is growing slowly, but steady. Never give up faith... as the power of prayer really works. My son is a perfect example of this!
(Yep, he is still on o2, but he is only at 16-25 cc''s. Nearly nothing, and will be off soon. No meds, just a multi-vita.)
My niece has had a child, she did not know she was pregnant until she gave birth..female problems..My niece is 20 years old and doing ok after just June 7 delivery. The baby was only 19 ounces at birth, possibly a 6 month preemie. The child is named Anna Mae and is inn a Texas hospital, far from where Mom lives. Hospital will let the Mom move in and stay with Anna Mae. That is a miracle, so is Anna Mae.The surprise my niece felt at being a mother was traumatic, as was the "fathers" reaction of total denial and rejection of both child and mother. They had dated a year. My niece has been able to touch Anna Mae and Anna clutched Mom''s finger. The Mom will move to hospital this weekend, please pray for Anna to overcome the dangerous health conditions preemies face, most important...Pray that whatever happens is understood to be GOD''s will, and we as humans should accept that decision ( later the reason will possibly be clarified to us)..

I am a first time mother and my son Nicholas Marlon Perry (Nico bean) was born on March 31, 2008 @ 24 weeks gestation weighing 1 lb 7.5 oz, he was due to be born July 19 2008. He has been in the NICU 10 weeks now and has since undergone two surgeries, PDA ligation and has the reservoir in his head due to fluid build up in his brain.

This is my second preemie, I had delivered the at 22 wks old after placenta previa, he did not survive at 1 lb1 oz he lived 35 minutes. His father and I were devastated. Now I just gave birth to a girl at 1 lb 5oz at 24 wks gestation, she has went through some things with PDA, breathing tubes, and weight gain. But over all she is very strong. She is now 1mth 1 lb 12.7 oz) she was supposed to be here in Aug, but she has her own time. She is still in the NICU but she is growing she is taking breastmilk, and I''m glad that is the best for her.
To all the preemie mothers, please keep your faith God, our father in heaven is the only one who can say who comes and goes but he won''t give you nothing that you can''t handle and that is also for the babies. Please remember it could worse but the ones we have lost are angels, the ones who are here are saints they have a purpose. Please pray for mine as I pray for yours.

3 lbs, 15 inches, 5/7/08
My daughter just had her first baby. She had a lot of blood pressure problems and is also dealing with cervical cancer. She lost her dad (my husband) in November to pancreatic cancer. We have had a tough 6 months. Anyway, the doctor decided that because of her blood pressure and high amounts of protein in her urine, he needed to take the baby at 34 weeks. She is small for her age. Her name is Kylie Marie Keel. My daughter, Kenzie, got to go home today. The baby was born on Thursday, May 8, 2008. She weighed 3 pounds 9 ounces and was 16 inches long. She is breathing on her own. She did not have to have oxygen at all. She has lost down to 3 pounds and 4 ounces. Because of my daughter?s health with the cancer, she will probably not get to have another one. We know that this baby was a gift from God and my husband got to see her before she got here. She has some of his features. Please pray for this baby and my daughter as she is having a tough time, as all young mothers do. Thank you for bringing such wonderful preemie things to us.
born 05/09/2008 @ 7:31am. Her original; due date was August 1st.

Brand new twins
My friend that I work with just this evening had a set of twins at 23 weeks gestational -- a boy 15oz - Daxton Michael and girl wt?? Syklee Marie. My friend has been in the hospital head tilted down and dialated 3cm for two weeks. One week ago Sunday she dialated up to 7cm and then boys water broke, they thought they were going to loose him then and if so would try to save the little girl. But God was at work they kept her tilted head down and increased her magnesium and the next day she was back down to 2.5cm. She stayed at that the rest of the week but this past weekend was experienceing more frewuent and harder contractions. She started bleeding quit a bit the doctors had to check her to make sure the baby wasn''t in the canal and he wasn''t. They could see his head now though so afraid of sending her into labor and the risk of infection since the boys water had broke they just left her alone down there hoping to get her as far along as possible. They gave her steroid shots the last two days but they could not stop the contractions and the babies were born. They could not stop the contractions after the boy was born to try to keep the little girl in the womb longer. Amazingly enough both babies were breathing on their own but doctors did not want them to ware out and go sown hill faster so the did inabate them. Please pray for them - this is their first pregnancy and they had t do artificial insemination to get pregnant. Brandi and Mike are the parents names
William Allen Nischan
birth wt 2lbs 15.7 oz, now weighs 3 lbs 2.8oz.
born first week of April, He is a week old and doing really good. He now is 2lb 5oz and 13 3/4'''' long. We are very proud of how he has been doing. He has two nurses that are already fighting over who gets him during the day.

I am Gramma to a sweet little angel, Jesse Chase, born April 20, 2008. We lost his twin but this little guy is such a fighter. Please pray that he will have the strength to grow big and strong and come home to his Mom and Dad. He had a PDA and has had surgery for a preforation in his intestine. As of today April 27, 2008 he is critical but still fighting. He needs lots of prayers and love
My grandson is expected next week, Elijah James. He is
estimated to weigh 1lb, 3oz. He is due on July 17, but
is not expected to survive much longer in the womb.
Please pray for him. With the circulation he has,
brain bleeds are expected. This is my daughter Katies
first child and she feels such love for him already.
Please pray for both of them.
Our baby girl Makena Kimani was born at 25 weeks with a weight of 1lbs 9 oz on 03/12/08. She has had 2 surgeries for PDA. The first surgery was stopped after the surgeons found her heart formation to be opposite from normal so they had to repeat it through her breast bone. She also has had a colostomy due to an intestine blockage and hole. Currently she is having she has 2 chest tubes for leaking lungs. Please pray for my daughter. To all families out there, do not be scared, God will definitely see us through this roller coaster time, remember you are not alone. My advice in addition to lots of praying, get preemie books to read. I am reading one, which made my heart at ease. I now do not flinch at those beeping monitors and i now understand what the doctors are telling me and the queer terms they use. Stay positive, speak to your babies and touch them, let them know mummy is there. Kagwiria Kimani (mum)

Letter from a Preemie Mom
My name''s Samantha Tessneer and I recently visited your site looking for clothes for older preemies and saw the prayer request page. I wanted to write to give the parents of these little ones a word of hope or encouragement but wasn''t sure exactly where to put it at so I decided to e-mail you instead. I have a 16 month old son, Tyler, who was born on Oct. 29 2006 at 28 wks, he weighed 2 lbs 6 oz at the time of birth. He was early due to myself having toxemia/preeclampsia and was taken by emergency c-sect. When he was just 2 days old on Oct 31/Nov 1 at 4 that morning they had to insert chest tubes to relieve pressure he had on his heart because he had small pin holes in his lungs allowing fluid to seep out and the fluid and air was pushing his heart to the left of his chest. He was about to come off the ventilator at this time but instead ended up staying on it for another wk and the chest tubes also stayed in for a wk. He also had yellow jondice and was placed under the belly ribbon light for almost a month. He was in the hospital for 2 months exactly and had to have 3 diff blood transfusions while there. Tyler''s release date was pushed back three diff times because before coming home he started having seizures and they couldn''t get him to give up the oxygen completely. He finally got to come home on Dec 29 2006. He came home on oxygen, a heart monitor and seizure medicine and three wks after getting him home we had to take him back to the hospital because he had hernia''s on both sides of his lower abdomen near his private parts. However after all this about a month or less after getting him home he was completely off the oxygen and the seizure med and hasn''t had any probs since which is the reason i''m writing this e-mail. I want the parents of those beautiful little miracles to know that as long as you never give up and stay by your children everything will turn out alright. My beautiful miracle is now 16, almost 17, months old and weighs a little over 22 lbs now. He''s starting to walk and h! is talki ng is getting better and he''s healthy as a horse. You never would know he was 3 month early now unless told. I''m attaching a picture to show you how big he is and hopefully if you can show the picture and the story with the parents of other angels waiting now for God''s touch it''ll give them hope. Thank You for listing.....

My husband and I became proud parents of a little boy recently. On March 14th 2008 @ 5:12PM baby Dominic Hart was born @ 27 weeks and 2Lbs of tiny little miracle. He celebrates his one week birthday this evening...He is doing amazing although yesterday we found out he suffers from brain bleed...we are still waiting for results as to how much if any damage has occured and what the hospital can and will do about it...Please pray for our bundle of Joy. His Big sister got to meet him for the first time, she was confused as to why she couldn''t hold him or take him home so Mommy explained he was born a little early, he is a little small so he needs to live in his special bed at the hospital until he gets big and strong to come home. She accepted my explanation and made him a get well card for his birthday...
I pray for any parent going through what my husband and I are. It is an unfortunate thing but with faith comes hope and with hope there is happiness....God bless you and yours.

He is putting on weight, his first brain ultrasound revealed NO bleeding and he is able to breathe room air with the assistance of the CPAP. We are at the hospital every day to visit and hold him. I count to days for him to come home and be with his family!
our little boy! He was born at 30 weeks and will be in the hospital two more months. He weighs 4 lbs. The report came back of down syndrome and we need your prayers.

Connor Loki Gay
My water ruptured at 25weeks gestation and the hospital admitted me and managed to keep Connor in my stomach for 3 more weeks. I had to go in for emergency CSection when they discovered I was contracting and his cord would be coming out first. My complications were very minimal, and I have healed quickly and easily. This is Connor Loki Gay born on January 24, 2008, exactly 12 weeks early...28 weeks gestation. He was 2lbs 12oz and 15" long.
He is now off of the ventilator and has overcome a heart murmur. He is still having trouble maintaining his own body temperature. He is now 3lbs 10.6oz as of 2-17-2008 and is on a oxygen flow rate of 2.0 with anywhere from 29% to 49%oxygen.
Jaxson has shown no signs of any serious problems. His ultra sounds have came back good, along with all other test. His levels are still a little off... but they cant find a single thing wrong with him. They are chalking it up to the stress of being a Preemie.
He has a feeding tube, and despite reflux, is managing to get nutrition. His frail 1 lbs stature... is now 1 lbs and 8 oz of preemie power! It has only been 3 weeks. Time has flown by so fast I can hardly believe it. But he fights hard every day and makes mom and dad so proud! I am certain that all the prayers sent his way... are truly helping him. I wanted everyone to know.. Thank You! (He is on CPAP now... no more breathing tube!!)

Please pray for my little baby, and for his older brother and sister who will not be able to meet him until his homecoming, as well as for my husband because he has been a pillar of strength during my six weeks of hospitalization prior to Beckett''s arrival, my week of surgical recovery, and has supported my staying closer to the hospital and not home with him and the kids because the baby is in a NICU over an hour and a half away. I would ask for prayers for me but I am still alive, my baby is alive, and I now have not only an amazing husband, but three beautiful, perfect children -- my prayers were answered.

Victor Javier Garcia
Our son was born on january 25,2008 at 24 weeks. Please pray for my son, every prayer helps. Thank You
born at 24 weeks, 2 days into my pregnancy. There is no explanation for my going into premature labor. A week before she was born they discovered I was 1 cm dilated.She was born. On December 10th, 2007 at 5:23pm. She was 1 lb, 5 ozs at birth and was 12 inches long. She is now almost 2 months old, weighs 2 lbs, 10 ozs, and is 14 and a quarter inches long. :) She is making sure and steady progress. She is on CPAP right now and her settings are getting lowered every day. I know she is a miracle baby. They told me there was no hope for her to live, and I decided before I delivered not to resucitate. But she kept on living, 3 hours after her birth, with no help from the doctors at all, she was still living - breathing on her own, crying, and she had good color. The only thing wrong was that she was cold. So they came in and asked me if I wanted her to be taken to the NICU, and I said "of course!", of course. :) She is there still, and will be there for awhile yet, but I am so beyond happy that she is doing so well. Please pray for her, though. She still has a long road to travel. Thank you so much!
