Preemie Twins


It has been a privilege of mine to hold a couple of darling preemie twins each day that there mother can't make it
the 2 1/2 hour drive to the hospital so that translates to about 4 or five days a week when I and my granddaughter (21) can go and hold them for one to two hours. They were only 8 inches long when they were born and weighed 1.5 lbs. It has been about 3 1/2 months and they are now about 4 lbs 10 oz and 3lb. 11 oz. Yesterday was their first time out of the isolete. It is pretty amazing how much better they do when they are being held regularly. We just hope and pray that they will continue to progress so they can go home as healthy normal babies before too long.

Hats off the a wonderful loving family who are so willing to adopt these babies from the beginning in spite of all the unknowns.
