This is Dreya! She was born at 27 weeks weighing 2 pounds 12 ounces. She interrupted a family vacation at the beach to come into this world a little early! Mom had to stay on bedrest for a week, and eventually had to deliver Dreya due to placental abruption.
Dreya came out crying despite being only 27 weeks! She didn't require oxygen for too long, and when I visited her, she was eating a bottle on her own. That's right - no feeding tube! She is now at home growing big and strong, alongside her three older brothers.
