Together, these parents gave the world a picture today. Communicated in thousands of images, the worldwide picture reminded us all that every human is valuable, no matter how small. Regardless of their age, size, or level of development, each human being is worth fighting for – especially at their most vulnerable moments.

One Twitter user wrote: “More preemies deserve to have a chance at life. We’re so happy our miracle baby is with us.”

Indeed, more babies of every age – from day one of their existence – deserve a chance at life. Every human being is a new miracle.
