Watch the dramatic moment a preemie leaves his tubes behind and starts a new life (VIDEO)

WARD MILES, PREMATURE

Vision + Heart | YouTube

Paola Belletti - published on 09/14/17

Ward Miles Miller's scary and moving first year of life was captured by his father.

Ward Miles Miller was born on July 20, 2012 — three months early. Fear and anxiety initially overshadowed (but didn’t suffocate) his parents’ joy and hope. The story of Ward’s first year of life is a beautiful, moving, and dramatic one, as told through the video and photos taken by his father Benjamin.

Little Ward received all the medical support possible and necessary until he was able to go home safely; he spent 107 days in the hospital, most of them in an incubator. His mom and dad, Lindsay and Benjamin Scott, are devoted and loving parents who fought for Ward and celebrated every ounce he gained as a milestone.

Today, Ward is navigating the stormy waters of life in a vessel that is stronger and more stable every day.
