Everything went according to plan for Tara Thomas during her pregnancy – until her 26th week.

"It was a normal, healthy pregnancy,” she recalled. “I felt some contractions and ended up in the hospital thinking I was dehydrated."

But within three days of admission, Thomas' son Rowan was born by Cesarean section. The tiny boy weighed 2 pounds 4 ounces – the average newborn weighs in around 7.5 pounds. Rowan spent his first 82 days in the neonatal intensive care unit at INTEGRIS Children's at Baptist Medical Center.
