8/6/12 — Seven-month-old Noelle Christine Aguiar already is melting hearts.
This beautiful little girl was born weighing less than a pound. Doctors predicted that she would not survive – first in the womb and then in her earliest stages of life.
But today Noelle is a smiling, thriving miracle of life. Now weighing six pounds, seven ounces, Noelle is finally out of the hospital and home with her parents.
Her mother reflects on the long, uncertain months that they faced: “When she smiles, it makes all of it worth it. Every IV, every blood stick, every surgery. That smile erases it all away.”
