Girl, 24w2d, 1 lb 6 oz, 12 inches long, 98 days in the NICU and home on oxygen and apnea monitor. **See “Amber’s Story”
After Mower (UT) lost her firstborn son at 21 weeks. Her daughter was born a year and a half later at 27 weeks. The NICU was overwhelming and isolating and it was through those two experiences she was led to found this social hub for parents to find the support they needed. Afton also gave birth to another daughter, born two days overdue after four months of strict bedrest. She believes it is a tender experience to hold a special baby in your arms when his spirit returns to his heavenly home, a miracle to watch tiny babies survive the risks of prematurity and a blessing to hold a healthy full-term baby after months of difficulty and sacrifices.
