My son Ward was born 15 weeks too early.  We were scared.  We did not know what to expect.  Here is a story of his amazing first year of life and the journey he went on from the hospital to coming home.

This video went viral in November, 2013 and to date has almost 50 million views between Vimeo and YouTube

This is a story of a mother’s love for her baby…

It sums up my son’s first year. He was born way too early, and the obstacles he had to overcome were really big but not bigger than our God.

Many of you have not seen Ward Miles like this. You have seen pictures. You have read a lot of posts. But, I think this video will show just how small he was when he was born, and how sick he was. I didn’t hold back when editing. I didn’t just include cute clips. There are some nasty moments. The reason being, I wanted people to see how bad he looked so that when they look at him today they get a better sense of how far he has come. It is truly a miracle and we thank God daily for getting him to where he is!

I also want to thank all the doctors, nurses, and staff all over the world that make it their life’s mission to help babies get better! It’s because of you that my son ever stood a chance to make it home!

Here are some more current photos of Ward:
