When she was welcomed into the world, Tru only weighted 1
pound and was the tiniest baby doctors have ever seen. Sadly, that meant that Tru had to spend a lot of time at the hospital where the doctors at Royal Columbian Hospital, in New Westminster, Canada did their best to fight for her life.
Her mom and dad prayed to God and hoped for the best. They somehow knew their little girl would survive and couldn’t wait to hold her in their arms. Mom was first able to touch her little bundle of joy after 11 days, and dad only got to hold her when Tru turned 54 days old.
Tru spent 71 days in an incubator after she was finally moved to a crib. It was then that her life started becoming better and better with each passing day.
During the four months at the hospital, baby Tru faced numerous challenges and was able to overcome a great number of conditions.
Imagine having to fight against Necrotizing Enterocolitis, two blood clots, chronic lung disease, MRSA, retinopathy, two blood infections – including sepsis – a congenital heart defect, and seven blood transfusions at such young age. But as it turned out, nothing was impossible for this tiny warrior who wanted to live and be around mommy and daddy’s side.
Today, Tru is four years old and super cute. Who would have thought this beauty only weighted a pound when she was born. What’s most, she is a big sister and a true inspiration for many. She is a perfect example that nothing is ever impossible and the only choice we have in life, no matter how hard things get, is to never stop fighting.
We hope she will have an amazing life and will reach everything she will put her mind to. She proved already that she’s unbeatable and we would love for her to keep that attitude in the years to come.
