The Rincons

 
Miranda was born at 27 weeks and one day, weighing 1 pound 4 ounces due to preeclampsia. Thanks to all the nurses, doctors, and staff at Good Samaritan Hospital, an HCA hospital, we were able to see her grow and progress. After 111 days Miranda as able to come home with her ecstatic yet terrified parents. We are happy to report that she continues to progress. Our family supports the March of Dimes so that other babies and their family should go through this frightful and stressful experience. Thank you for your support in the past, today, and in the future. Your help today helps the March of Dimes help families and their babies tomorrow. James, Amy, and baby Miranda Rincon
