In August of 1999, Lucas and Jacob were born 16 weeks early, at 24 weeks gestation. Their triplet brother was born 6 weeks prior and did not survive his premature birth. Lucas and Jacob weighed 1 lb. 7 oz. and 1 lb 5 oz. when they were born and were in the Neonatal Unit for 120 days. We are thankful that the March of Dimes funded research for various medications and therapies that aided in their survival. 2 1/2 years after Lucas and Jacob were born, our 4th son Liam was born full term and healthy. Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. I'm walking in March for Babies because I want to do something about this. And I need your help.
