I had heard a rumor about this amazing mom in the South End that had premature twins born at 2 pounds 13 and 15 ounces, 11 weeks early! A friend told me about how for months the mom woke up every hour to feed one of her underweight newborns in order to help them put weight back on. I thought, that has to be an exaggeration…until I met Marina. As she started to share their story… I stopped and said, ” Wait, it’s you…I have heard all about you!”
As I listened to the details of their story and watched this mom and dad interact with their daughters I could see that though the road had been long…they were absolutely smitten.
