Boston's oldest nephew, Gage, was born at only 24 weeks gestation, making him a "Micro-preemie". At birth, he weighed 1 lb., 6.5 oz and was 11 inches long.
Despite the odds, Gage will be 18 years old on May 2nd and has grown into a fine young man! If it were not for the research that the March of Dimes helps fund, we may not be able to make that same statement.
Micropreemie.com is an informative and inspiring site for parents, families and friends of premature babies started by Boston's oldest sister, Brooke. This site includes photos, the birth story, and journals of Gage's progress through his early years.
