Mari

 
Five years ago, we were blessed by the birth of our strong and beautiful daughter, Mariana. Mari was born too early (by 15 weeks), super tiny (at a whopping 1 pound 3 ounces, nine inches long) and very sick (too many ailments to name and many nights when it was unclear whether she’d make it). The neonatologist suggested that we not make any long-term plans. During her turbulent five-month stay at the hospital, Mari battled many life-threatening illnesses and underwent open-heart surgery. Progress came slowly and setbacks were trying. Our hearts wrenched as several other babies during those months in the NICU didn’t make it. We got accustomed to worry, but Mari’s strength inspired us. At birth Mari fit in our hands; now she is a handful and we would not have it any other way. We can barely keep up with her as she scales jungle gyms, pirouettes across the dance floor and breaks boards with her spinning snap kick. Mari is less tiny, extremely curious and resilient - not to mention loving and fun(ny). Mari leads our family in the March of Dimes walk in memory of all of her NICU mates who never made it home, to help future families and to remind us of how fortunate we are. We look forward to seeing you at March for Babies!Damaris Hernandez and Joe Gilbert.
