Incredible photos of baby Ward, born at 25 weeks, show the miracle of life

Father Benjamin Scot Miller is sharing the amazing story of his son, Ward, who was born extremely premature at 25 weeks. Miller’s powerful photos and video document Ward’s journey in the neonatal intensive care unit, and his progression out of the hospital through his first years.

Now a healthy, thriving boy, Ward’s life shows how babies born extremely premature can survive with medical treatment. For a baby who spent his first 107 days in the hospital, the gift of life is even more precious.
