On November 21, 1999 we were so scared to learn that the pains I was feeling were, in fact, labor pains and that our little boy was coming to us 2 months early! We were so unsure of what was about to happen and thanked God when he arrived at 11:18 pm, weighing just 4 lbs, 2 oz!! The hardest thing ever was to leave him in the NICU and visit him for the 14 days he was there. We brought him home, weighing just 3 lbs 12 oz and have been blessed more by this little boy in the 9 years that he's been with us than we ever imagined. He's grown into a fun-loving and caring son, brother, and friend.
Happy 9th Birthday, Ben
We all love you - Mom, Dad, Jake, and Ally
