10 Fingers and 10 toes are what most parents may jokingly look for when their precious baby leaves the womb. As for Carrie & Robert, their concerns were a lot more severe; they prayed that their baby would make it out of the womb with enough development to survive. What Carrie believed to be just typical stomach cramps turned into the delivery of her son 12 weeks ahead of schedule. Miraculously Caelan Alexander was born 08/21/11 weighing only 2lbs. 9.5oz.. His was then quickly rushed off to an entirely different hospital to fight for his life with only a quick glimpse from mom & dad.
I had the opportunity to meet this blessing from God today. Caelan is steadily getting stronger and stronger and according to Carrie; it seems like he grew overnight. This morning she thought he was heavier than usually and much to her surprise after weighing him he finally reached 7lbs.
Caelan has been at home with his family for the past few weeks with the help of a breathing monitor (to alert Carrie & Rob if Caelan forgets to breathe), caffeine to help him to remember to keep breathing, and a few other things to help his body continue the developing stages.
Thanks to modern medicine and God above, this little man is doing really good breathing on his own. Although there are a few inconveniences like making use to grab the monitor pack before walking around with Caelan, Carrie & Robert are happy to have their whole family home. Please say a prayer for the Meusling Family and their miracle boy!
Thank you for allowing me the privilege to capture these special moments of a lifetime!
Love to find your special quirks and personality. Love to find the love in every relationship. Want every image to make you "feel" some kind of emotion. Looking for the real emotions.
