Medical Miracle; 12-Ounce Baby Born 4 Months Premature Gets to Go Home

Emily Rose Hollins
Emily Rose Hollins arrived home from the hospital on Friday for the first time since her premature birth five months ago.

Emily is one of the smallest babies to survive outside the womb. She was born four months prematurely, weighing just 12 ounces, . . .

She is the tiniest baby ever to survive at Integris Baptist Medical Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

“Just knowing what she’s gone through and where she is today, … that’s a miracle,” her mother, Melanie Hollins, said.

Emily’s life is a miracle for more than one reason.

Before Melanie Hollins knew she was pregnant, she said she was diagnosed with stage four kidney failure. She was undergoing tests and hoping to get on an organ transplant list when she found out that she was pregnant with Emily — something she did not think was possible.

Under such circumstances, some women may have chosen abortion, but Melanie chose life for little Emily.When Emily arrived four months early, Melanie thought her tiny daughter might die. Doctors warned her that Emily had just a slim chance of surviving. But Melanie said the nurses encouraged her so much as they cared for her baby girl. . . . Read More - Miracles Happen!
