My Friend Allyson Barrett lost her son Zach a 3 month old boy who was 8 weeks premature to a father Dennis Cepero he never met. The Judge claimed mother to be fit and asked the Mother of the Father if she had experience weaning a child from the breast. We are fighting to get her help and recognition for all mothers out there that taking a child away for no reason while breastfeeding is wrong and should be against the law. The Judge claimed her as a fit mother but due to previous depression that the father was a better fit. Here are her websites http://apps.facebook.com/fundrazr/activi ty/9b48e91d474446eb834f278cb5096417 http://www.facebook.com/home.php? sk=group_101289136629141&ref=nf http://zachary.bbnow.org/index.php Please send this out to everyone you know that could help her and her son out. And if you have any information to contact anyone that will help out please let me know. Thanks for you time. Tara Smith

I was on this site day and night 6 years ago, when my daughter was in the NICU for 83days, after being born at one pound, nine ounces, at 29 weeks (IUGR, pre-eclampsia). Now, she is an amazing first grader who is still tiny (40 pounds) but smart (A+ student) and funny. Her only limitation has been that her eye muscles were 'weak' and would start to cross when tired, and she needed eye surgery at age 5, and will wear eyeglasses until at least age8. As all of you that are going through the shock of having a preemie and the fear of what is next, please know that kids are amazingly resilient and will astound you with how they can pull through this- hang in there! (ps: not sure if this made a difference, but we fed our daughter pumped breast milk for 1st year)

Grayson was born when I was 32 weeks and 2 days. He has been in the NICU for 2 weeks and is doing really well. I cant wait to get him home but at the same time I am scared to death. I read all these web pages that say all of the issues preemies have and it makes me wonder if he is guaranteed to have some issue and there is no chance he will be a typical kid. I think in this instance the internet is bad for me. Its very helpful to read blogs and random post from parents who have preemies who have grown up to be totally healthy.

i had a premature baby (750g), born at 25wks gestation, due to placental abruptio. He is an absolute miracle. he was the the ventilator to 47days. had two septic infections, IVH grade 4 (L) grade 2 (R), PDA, ROP, Apnea, Anemia, and the list just goes on... we were told, that he will never walk, be cerebral palsy, etc. all we did was rally every believer we found to pray for this little mite, and i can truely say that God has seen us through. he is now 6 months old, 2 and a half months corrected age, and our paediatrician is blown away by his progress. they also told us that boys don't generally do well. but this boy has proven everyone wrong. We thank God everyday for this awesome miracle.

I came on this site 6-7 yrs ago. wow has the time flown by for me. I am now 23 and in the US Army. I have been to war, and my physical abilities are just like any other person. I was only 1lb 9oz's with a 15% chance of living. Let me tell you, God has a plan for you and your child(ren).I have done wonderful things in the last 4 yrs of my life in the Army. I am a medic. I love the medical field. But Technology and medical is so diverse that, you're baby will have a fighting chance now. They are little soldiers in a way. Adapt and overcome. That has been the story of my life. I am 23, 5'0" barely 100 pounds. but HEALTHY. thats all that matters. i will always be small. : ) GOOD LUCK to all the new preemie mommies. Just dont give up they will overcome any complications, or just adapt to it. : )
