Miracle Baby Elijah was born on June 21st, 2013. Elijah was born at 30 weeks weighing just 1 pound and 12 ounces and spending his first 91 days of life in the the NICU. At one month old and not quite 2 pounds Elijah was diagnosed with NEC. Due to the silent aggression of this fatal infection his parents were informed that Elijah may not live past 24 hrs and to prepare for the worst. Thankfully the next day his parents were informed he made it though the night and hoped for the best and a good recovery. After surgery Elijah thrived and was able to go home after 91 days in the NICU. Elijah’s parents are incredibly grateful for the assistance they received from Miracle Babies during their darkest days. Elijah turned 6 this June and aside from his surgery and some delays when he was younger hes a typical boy running, playing, and no one would ever know that he was born 1lb 12 oz.
