At my 28 week prenatal appointment, Jeramey and I learned our son, Benjamin Lewis, had not grown since 24 weeks. What was going through our minds? Nothing, totally numb. What was going through our hearts? Fear of the unknown and our hearts were in the pits of our stomach. At that point, all hands and trust went to God.
On March 25, 2015, Ben was born at 1 pound 4.8 ounces. He was quickly intubated and rushed to NICU. We saw him for a split second, a tiny little red hand. We spent the next 95 days in NICU, and every day was an eternity. Today, Ben is a healthy 2-year-old who loves to sing songs, play outside, read books and play with “Dada” and “Ma”.
We’re proud to be representing the March of Dimes as the Ambassador Family and sharing Ben’s story. We have set a goal to raise $3250 in honor of Ben’s birthday on 3/25. Funds raised through the Signature Chefs Auction are supporting essential research to benefit all babies. Together, we are working towards a day when every baby is born healthy.
