It was a scary day for my cousin, Christopher, and his wife, Brooke, when they were told to go to UAB Women and Infant’s in Birmingham to possibly meet their baby girl who would be 32.5 weeks in gestational age due to Brooke’s blood pressure getting too high. As it turned out, Abbi needed to make her debut. She was 2 pounds 14 ounces and 16 inches long. The truly miraculous thing about Abbi is that she was breathing on her own! That is usually not heard of for a baby so small and so early. I got to meet Abbigail when she was two days old, I was just blown away. It is not everyday that you see a blatant miracle from God. Before Christopher got there to see us, he called on the phone and Brooke put it up for him to talk to Abbi. It was the sweetest thing to see a big smile cross her face just to hear her daddy’s voice, she knew exactly who was talking to her. I think she’s already got him wrapped around her tiny little fingers.
Since taking these images, Abbigail has been able to eat from a bottle on her own and has gained 11 ounces and is thriving. Praying that Abbi continues to do well and gain weight so that she and her parents can go home.
