This 5-Day-Old Premature Baby's Beautiful Smile Is Giving Hope To Worried Parents
October 22, 2016
One little girl is inspiring the parents of premature babies everywhere after a photo of her big smile just five days after being born went viral.
Freya was born several weeks early and weighed just over 3 lbs.
"Our first daughter at five days old. 3 lbs. 14 oz., she was happy to be alive! This picture was one I looked at often to get me through the ups and downs of our NICU days. Life is so precious," Freya's mother, Laurie wrote.
Laurie posted the photo on Facebook and, within hours, parents from all around the world were sharing stories of their own premature babies.
It's amazing how far medical technology has come to help save these precious lives. Not very long ago, these little angels most likely wouldn't have made it.
Today, Freya is flourishing and will celebrate her second birthday next month.
"She's so fun. She's so happy. That picture at five days old, you can see her little personality and you look at her now, and she hasn't changed. She's still the happy little girl in that photo."
