A note from mom:"My son Gabriel was born 13 weeks premature July 21, 2011 weighing 2 lbs 8 ozs 15 in tall. He spent 93 days in the NICU. I was 27 week pregnant and he came unexpectedly. I still remember the first day I went to visit Gabriel in the nicu. Telling myself ok we have a about 16 weeks to go. I was very overwhelmed being a first time mother, I had never been around anything like this. So much to learn in so little time. Went off the ventilator 3 weeks later and started breathing on his own. As weeks went by recovering from my surgery he was growing so fast, and learning. So many test and wires I knew he was in good hands. A little over 3 months we finally graduated, it's still hard passing by the hospital and hope Gabriel will visit once he is a lil older."

A note from Carolyn"Mom picked a great location it was the beautiful Botanical Gardens. The session went smoothly with her help too! She did a great job with getting Gabriel's attention. He didn't cry, was smiling, and was so good!"
