Preemie Prints NICU Photo Shoot: A Miracle ~ Baby Xander

Please enjoy these inspirational photos of a tiny NICU fighter and consider supporting our mission to share hope with families who have a baby born prematurely or critically ill. Our organization with our volunteers is blessed to be able to give this special gift to so many families. We thank our supporters and donors for allowing us to touch the lives of NICU families through our many support programs.

A note from Xander's mom: 
"Xander was a twin and at 11 days we lost his twin brother. He is still in the hospital and has yet to come home. Xander also loves his lollipops. He has been in 3 different hospitals and has had 6 surgeries. What is keeping him in the hospital for so long now is his chonic lung problems. The hospital he currently is in now is the closest he has been to us in the past 8 months and we have been able to see him alot more now. My husband and I are having to juggle time with our son who is 1.5 years old, I am in school, I am in the Marine Corps and back to work, as well as spending time with Xander. It is diffucult because every time we see Xander we need to make sure we have someone to watch our son because he isn't allowed in the NICU."

A note from our volunteer:
"I will say this little man absolutely loved the camera! He was constantly following my lens as I was taking the photos. I really enjoyed my session with this family!"

We thank our volunteer for doing such an amazing job for this family as they continue to face a difficult road ahead. To our friends, fans, & supporters: please keep baby Xander & his family in your prayers!
