From the Mom of Preemies

Thank You!!!

My three boys were all born pre-maturely. My twins, Adam (4lbs 8oz) and Lucas (2lbs 5loz) would need to spend some time in the hospital. Their younger brother, Maxime (also born prematurely) did not go home with me. When they were given the regulation hospital garb, my boys looked pathetically small. Thanks to the preemie caps that were knit by volunteers, my guys looked handsome and dapper despite their small size.

When you are dealt with a blow of premature births; gifts like minature clothing, as well as, the volunteer grandparents who rock the babies make a stressful situation easier to cope with.

By the way, my guys have caught up quite nicely:

Adam (50 lbs) 4.5 years
Lucas(37 lbs) 4.5 years
Maxime (31 lbs) 2.5 years

Thanks Again,

Sandrine Chaumette Holeman
