Traci Anne Holmes was a healthy mom-to-be when her first child was born nine weeks early. Being the mom of a preemie was the most terrifying experience of her life. With her second child, she struggled to keep it to term and she was successful. When she found herself pregnant with her third child, she was living in a small town with new doctors. She and her husband were not planning on this pregnancy for many reasons. Due to her past problems during pregnancy, she sees her new OB/GYN frequently to hopefully have a healthy pregnancy. Disaster strikes when she is only at twenty-three weeks in her pregnancy. She develops preeclampsia and even though she has extensive medical intervention, she must have an emergency C-section at twenty-five weeks and two days. She is now the mom of a micro-preemie. The baby weighs fifteen ounces and is only twelve inches long. Now begins the fight for her daughter, and the fight with her emotions. How can she do this? At fifteen ounces, how can she survive? What will she be like if she does? For the author, there is her guilt, her emotions, and lots of time in different NICUs.
