I heard about the second baby first, then last evening I saw Kimberly’s story and pictures.
When she was born 15 weeks premature and weighing ten and a half ounces, her father’s confidence was about the only thing on Kimberly Mueller’s side. In the few snatched moments he was allowed before his daughter was whisked away by doctors, Andreas Mueller spoke from his heart.
“I whispered to her: ‘Kimberly, you’ll make it,'” he recalled.
Now six months, Kimberley has been allowed home for the first time (Above with mother Petra and father Andreas)
Pictures and text from the Daily Mail.
And then a few days ago in Russia this bruiser was born. He weighed 17 pounds. Pictures and story also from the Daily Mail and from Reuters.
A Siberian woman who gave birth to her 12th child – doing more than her fair share to stem Russia’s population decline – was stunned to find that little Nadia weighed in at a massive 17.1 lb (7.75kg).Nadia was delivered by caesarean section in the local maternity hospital in the Altai region on September 17, joining eight sisters and three brothers, a local reporter said.
I wish their families and both babies health and joy throughout their lives.
