“Chloe’s struggles during her first months of life are the most difficult obstacles we have ever faced,” shares her mom Jamie Smith. Twenty-five weeks into Jamie’s pregnancy she was diagnosed with a life-threatening pregnancy complication. Doctors explained to Jamie and her husband Josh that immediate delivery was the best option to ensure survival for both mother and baby. Little Chloe was born on May 2, 2010, weighing 1 pound and 9.8 ounces. Chloe spent the next 11 weeks in Children’s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit growing and becoming stronger.
“Thanks to Children’s Hospital, we have our little miracle at home with us,” says Jamie. “We thank God each day for that blessing.”
