Record Breaking Preemie


Record Breaking Preemie

Here’s double reason to give thanks today.  Guinness World Records declared Curtis Means the most premature baby ever to survive.  Curtis was born at just 21 weeks and one day, weighing less than 15 ounces.  The odds were so stacked against him, the doctors asked his mom to keep praying.  Prayers were answered.  Curtis survived and is now sixteen months old.  Ironically, the previous record holder was born only a month before Curtis.  He was 21 weeks and two days along in pregnancy.  Richard Hutchinson weighed less than 12 ounces.  An official worldwide registry of very premature babies is available.  Visit and click on the microphone icon to access this list of amazing children.  The staff and I at Life Issues wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!
