As part of World Prematurity Day, we want to recognize this family, the miracle of sextuplets born on June 11, 2010 and their incredible mother, Jenny McClendon. The babies were born at 30 weeks and were about 2lbs each at birth. Jenny, who you may know from Raising Sextuplets on WEtv, touches on her experience of giving birth to six babies within six minutes, suffering heart failure, and surviving, and is now a mother of nine working as a PA. Her story of strength, faith, and hard work here: http://ow.ly/Eidoh
Join us in celebrating the lives of preemies today, those who have survived, those who haven’t, and their brave parents & NICU healthcare workers. We honor you today.
