“As if he was telling us ‘I’m okay!!! Don’t give up on me!,’” the incredible story of a baby born at 25 weeks who is doing fine
By Dave Andrusko
Ward Miles in his 10th day of life.
It was purely a coincidence. No sooner had I finished writing about the sad, sad story of Ariel Levy’s miscarriage at 19 weeks than I ran across “One Miraculous Year In The Life Of A Baby Born Too Soon,” the amazing story of how little Ward Miles, born at 25 weeks, survived incredible odds and is now a thriving 16-month-old toddler.
The setting for the story that appeared on Huffington Post was the surprise video Ben Miller made for his wife, Lyndsey Miller, on her 32nd birthday. “I had tricked her into thinking I was working on other projects late into the night,” her husband Ben told the Huffington Post. “I called her back to my office and as soon as she saw Ward on the screen she knew I had been working on something for her and she started crying.”
Making it more perfect is that her birthday coincided with the one-year-anniversary of the day Ward came home from the hospital.
And Ward had really been up against it. Lyndsey, only 25 weeks along, experienced cramps. Turns out she was in labor and four hours after her doctor sent her to the hospital, Ward was born.
