This is Christopher today. Weighing just over one pound at birth, he spent his first three months of life in the neonatal intensive care unit. Under the care of skilled medical professionals this tiny baby survived -- to be sent home with his teen-age mother. While he was still in the hospital, a Low Birth Weight Development Center representative met with this mother, answered her questions about his care, visited her at home to make sure she had what she needed for the baby, talked with her about her own personal goals, and enrolled them both in the Low BIrth Weight Development Center. Today, Christopher is class president and, as a high school student, is enrolled in a pre-engineering program at a local college. -- proof that the right kind of early intervention can set a child on the footpath to a bright future.There are many other children like Christopher, born too soon, fighting to survive, and awaiting their chance for success.
