9 oz baby comes home from hospital

I got chills when I read this news in my Facebook feed last night. Some of my Bay Area peeps are friendly with Nicki Moore who gave birth to baby Kenna back in January. Friends and family tracked her progress on Keeping Up With Kenna. Born at 24 weeks, she is now one of the world’s smallest surviving babies.

Born at 9.6 ounces, she’s now up to about 6 pounds and healthy enough to go home under the care of her parents.

My heart goes out to all you NICU moms for your patience, dedication, victories, and sometimes losses. May little Kenna grow stronger and more healthy every day.

Congrats to the Moore family.
