Ryland's NICU Grad Session in Marietta, GA

Please enjoy Preemie Prints' families inspirational story & photos. Consider supporting our mission to share hope with families who have a baby born prematurely or critically ill. We thank our supporters, Preemie Prints volunteers, and donors for allowing us to continue touching the lives of NICU, preemie, and angel families.


We pray these special memories from Preemie Prints 
will help families heal and remember how strong 
they were in overcoming their NICU journey together.

A NICU STORY | THOUGHTS FROM MOM
"I came down with a condition called the HELLP syndrome. I had to have an emergency C-section at 30 weeks gestation. I was scared for my baby because he was so young and little. He is doing good and gaining weight like crazy. He is currently a little over 4 weeks old (34 weeks gestation). He now weighs 3lbs 7ozs! He was put in a crib today!! I have hope that he will come home soon. It has been a long road and we still have a long road ahead of us but I know he will be fine!"


Update:
At the time of this Preemie Prints Photo Shoot, Ryland was a NICU graduate!

Camila's NICU Grad Session in Missouri City, Tx

Please enjoy Preemie Prints' families inspirational story & photos. Consider supporting our mission to share hope with families who have a baby born prematurely or critically ill. We thank our supporters, Preemie Prints volunteers, and donors for allowing us to continue touching the lives of NICU, preemie, and angel families.


We pray these special memories from Preemie Prints 
will help families heal and remember how strong 
they were in overcoming their NICU journey together.

A NICU STORY | THOUGHTS FROM MOM
"Camila was born two months prematurely and she was 3 lbs 9 oz and little as she could be. I developed severe preeclampsia that provoked it all. Camila was in the NICU for 4 long weeks. I cried everyday and even now I cry knowing she had to stay at the hospital without me. I knew she was going to be well because I put all my faith in God's hands. It's not easy to see your baby with tubes all over her but you have to be strong to let doctors do whatever they need to do to make sure your baby is doing well."

A note from Merissa:

She was such an angel and absolutely adored her big brother and sister! She was a very healthy and happy 6 month old :)
