Tiny baby wins epic battle
Each newborn is special, but this baby is a little extra special: a baby that weighed less than a pound when she was born almost four months premature.
Amelia Renard's mom, Caroline Lefebvre, proudly proclaims that hers is a very good baby who hardly ever cries.
Amelia has already had to put up an epic fight for life. She now tips the scale at around four pounds. Still tiny, but more than four times bigger than when she was born by emergency c-section last september. Her parents have lived on a roller coaster of emotions but can finally look forward to bringing their baby home to live and grow like any other child despite being one of the smallest ever premature babies born in Canada.
Mom and Dad have already learned a precious lesson from Amelia: be thankful for each and every day.
