Tales of joy and recovery were sprinkled among our May “In the Moment” posts. We invite you to take a glance at those you may have missed, or a second peek at those you’ve already enjoyed.
2. Baby Royce was determined to be in this world. He was conceived even after his mom Stephanie Stoudmire underwent tubal ligation — one of the most effective types of birth control. Then, he was born 11 weeks prematurely and spent 11 weeks in the NICU.
5. The fierce love of a mother and her baby is like no other. We shared stories of 2 first-time moms who could use your support to get their sons Thomas and Maximus home from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
8. Erica and Kyle lost their first child at birth, so they feared the worse when their third baby was found barely breathing and lifeless at home at just 10 weeks old. Thankfully, Malachi has made a full recovery, but they wanted to share what happened to help others.
10. Paging “Doctor” Saige Carpenter! The 4-year-old loves to wear her kid-sized scrubs & lab coat when she has an appointment with Dr. Chandrakant Patel. He’ll perform her third heart surgery soon to correct pulmonary atresia.
