born at 21 weeks and 6 days

In 2006 a baby was born at 21 weeks and 6 days in Florida.

This is the first baby to be born before 23 weeks gestation, click here to read the story.

It's amazing that doctors don't consider a pregnancy 'viable' until 24 weeks. I know this case is probably an exception but it just goes to show me that life begins at conception, not when the docs say 'now the pregnancy is viable'.

Just as a side note - people can have an abortion up until 24 weeks - just when the pregnancy is declared 'viable'. Hmmmm!

What an amazing story and look how little her feet are - what a miracle! Perfectly designed by our maker!

This is the little girl now - looks like she is getting chubby at one year old!

Two years ago my son's sister in law had a baby three months early. She developed pre-eclampsia and had to have the baby. He weighed just 1.5 lbs (don't know how many grams that is) and is now a healthy two year old. Wow!

Nix - that photo of what she looks like now made me cry! Absolutely AMAZING!!!! God is so kind, and abortion is so evil!

Each precious baby God puts together, some He chooses to take home straight away, and then there are others that are born at 21wks and He chooses to leave here for lifetime, I hope! AWESOME!
