During December Eden’s Garden was honored to help its first family in a hospital outside Minnesota. The family lives in Minnesota but the baby is in the NICU in Fargo. Amelia was born on November 13th at 29 weeks. She had severe Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR) and arrived weighing only 14.5 ounces!!! This teeny tiny little miracle is this family’s first baby and they felt so afraid to be separated by miles from her. She loves tummy time and wants her mommy or daddy to hold their hands on her head when she needs comforting. Amelia is having “spells” or moments in time when she forgets to breathe and ultimately her heart rate drops as well. These preemie problems….. Amelia has a very special mommy and daddy and she is showing signs of progress, she still only weighs 1lb 9 oz but she’s making steps in the right direction.
Because this family travels a distance to the NICU and needed day to day necessities, Eden’s Garden was able to provide for them during their journey. Please continue to support Eden's Gardens mission today.
