Asher's NICU Photo Shoot

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.

After looking into adoption a couple of years ago and having to withdraw from the program due to some unforeseen circumstances, we decided to began the surrogacy journey the early part of 2016.  On August 15th, 2016 we received conformation of pregnancy via blood test. The entire surrogacy process is unbelievable. Our experience has been incredible with our surrogate and her family.  The passing of Avery only brought all of our family and friends closer together.  The loss of Avery and the fight to keep Asher alive has been and continues to be a very emotional experience.  The amount of support from friends and family has been unbelievable. The tremendous amount of prayers we are receiving is incredible for us and baby Asher.” 

Asher’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Minvi Duncan.
A Note From Minvi:
“Very excited to meet Baby Asher and his dad, Casey Davis. We finally got our schedules to work and last Thursday, I drove to the Presbyterian Dallas to meet them. I remembered going to this very same hospital 14 years ago when I was precariously pregnant with our youngest daughter. It was bittersweet coming back and being able to pay forward the blessings we've been given since her birth. Casey is such a devoted and loving dad. I can tell right away how proud he is of his gentle little boy, Asher. Casey was kind enough to share some wonderful pictures of their little family and ranch home. I was saddened to know from his story that Asher's twin did not make it. Asher is such a sweet baby and was very quiet and patient all through out our session. He continues to grow and has gained weight since being born so prematurely. I wish him and his wonderful parents, Casey and James, prayers for continued growth and healing so that the family can finally settle contently in their beautiful home.”
