Viral Video: Father's Touching Tribute To Son And Mother
An Ohio dad pays tribute to his son's miraculous survival. His son was born three and half months premature and is now a year old. The father captured the moments from the child's birth through his release from the hospital.
When Ward Miles Miller was born, he weighed not quite a pound and half. He stayed in the hospital's Intensive Care Unit for over a hundred days.
Ward's parents Benjamin and Lyndsey didn't know if their beautiful boy would survive, but he did.
His dad, a photographer made this video as a birthday present for the 16 month old Ohio boy and his mother. He writes on his Vimeo page:
This is a story of a mother's love for her baby.
A year ago from this Halloween he came home. I made this video to commemorate his first year and how far he has come. Today happens to be his mother's birthday... so I made this as a gift to her.
I 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!
The seven minute video, which is on Vimeo, has been viewed more than 1.9 million times.
A quick note, November is National Prematurity Awareness Month.
