Thankful for the miracle of Noelle

Noelle was born to one of my dear friends on December 5, 2011. At birth, she weighed 12.55 oz and was 9.4 inches long. She wasn't expected to make it. The doctor told her mom that if Noelle was silent they would not try to resuscitate her, but if Noelle cried, they would do everything they could to give her a chance. When they pulled her out, she cried! Now, she's about to celebrate her first birthday. She still has trials to overcome and some long-term health needs because of being born so tiny, but her parents are definitely celebrating her first Thanksgiving with rejoicing at their amazing miracle!

What a touching story! It's amazing what our tough little fighters accomplish. My granddaughter had a stroke at birth and I had to fly cross-country to be with my son. I flew thinking I would never get to hold her. Now, eight years later she lives nearby and I have been able to witness all of her successes - I taught her to ride a two-wheeler this spring! This is a wonderful page - the photos are beautiful and I just love the sketch. Great job!

Absolutely beautiful layout and such a touching poem to tell the story. Our DGS was 8 weeks early, but he weighed 4 #s. His birth was so scary, but he has done great. One of our daughters works in the NICU, so I get to hear many stories about these little fighters. Thanks for sharing.
