It is normal for expecting parents to share a common aspiration of a normal pregnancy and ultimately the delivery of a healthy baby. Eight years ago, my wife and I also shared this dream as we anxiously awaited the arrival of our third child. However, we were soon launched down a roller-coaster ride of emotional highs and lows with the premature delivery of a 31 week, 2 pound, 14 ounce baby girl. Our daughter, Claire, spent the next seven weeks inside of an incubator at a neonatal intensive care unit with wires and tubes to monitor and sustain her fragile body. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined such a small human being, yet here I was holding my own daughter fully in the palm of my hands.
