A wonderful thing happened to this family. Lindsey Miles became pregnant and was expecting a baby boy.
In the fifth month of pregnancy, after morning exercises, she felt stomach cramps and went to the doctor directly after work. But it turned out that the work activity had already started.
The little one was born in the 5th month and weighed only 680g. The doctors said nothing: neither comforting nor encouraging.
They waited anxiously for news every hour while little Ward was in intensive care.
Here he spent 107 long days, at night there was no mother next to him. But modern technologies and specialists work perfect miracles.
These touching photos from the first year of life were captured by Ward’s father, Benjamin Miles.
He presented the video chronicle of the fourth day of his birth, July 16, 2012, to his wife just for her birthday, which coincided with the release of their son and finally the appearance of his house, where toys were waiting for him and a cradle.
Doctors warned that the chance that everything will be fine is equal to the chance that the child will have irreversible consequences due to such low weight and early birth, but a strong and cheerful little one and parents who l ‘have surrounded with faith in the best and love everything won.
“On such a difficult day, we were there. The little one was without a mask and without a tube. And suddenly he turned his head a little and smiled.
We knew he couldn’t see at this point, but the fact that he opened his eyes was something we had never seen before. He was looking right at us! I had time to photograph it.
After a while, he closed his eyes and turned his head slightly towards the ceiling. I will never forget this moment.
I feel like he was telling us – I’m fine! Don’t lose confidence in me! » Ward was gaining weight, the bruising had disappeared and there were no signs of bleeding.
On his first birthday, he ate the cake himself. Now Ward goes to kindergarten.
