No one plans a pregnancy thinking, "I can't wait to be a NICU Mom." But for Marissa, going into early labor due to placenta previa, was actually relief—relief that high-risk care, with an advanced neonatal ICU and Neonatologist Dr. Chris Stapley, were right down the street when mom and baby needed it the most. Her husband, an active duty Marine, was out-of-town on service until June 4, the original due date, so no one ever thought this would happen—that Easton, a three-pound miracle baby, would be born on April 3.
And soon, due to new high-tech cameras in the NICU through a generous gift from the Circle of Hope Foundation, dads in these situations will be able to "beam in" from halfway across the world to see their precious miracles.
KSHB's Taylor Hemness shares their story, and has a great gift in store for this Marine Hero: A quick call from Taylor, reuniting Mom, Baby Easton to share their powerful story.
