Parents: Luke and Lindsey Powers
Hometown: Auburn, NYOur son Logan arrived 13 weeks early. I had a normal pregnancy until I spent five days in Crouse Hospital, 96 hours in labor, at week 27. Logan was born on Aug. 17, 2014, weighing 2.8 lbs. It was the scariest time of our lives, yet Logan came out crying, which was the most beautiful sound when you go into labor 13 weeks early.

While in the NICU for 73 days, Logan had his ups and downs, and so did we. We cried, smiled and tried to laugh. The nurses and doctors took away our fears. The noises and emotions are something we will never forget.

If it wasn’t for the hard work and dedication of the Crouse NICU team, Logan wouldn’t be where he is today. As I sit here and write this, Logan is weighing in at 25 pounds, 31 inches tall. We celebrated his first birthday in August and he is starting to walk. He has hit every milestone and couldn’t be a happier child. We are extremely blessed. There are not enough thanks in the world for the people at Crouse. Life is truly fragile! Enjoy every minute!
