Despite supporting Planned Parenthood, a Johnson’s Baby vid is highlighting the precious story of baby Jamie who was born at 26 weeks along with his twin sister Emily.

The message J+J wants to send is, “Every baby can benefit from a loving touch.”

According to the vid, Parents Kate Ogg and husband David say that they tried for three years to have a baby when they discovered they were having twins.

At 26 weeks Kate was told she was going into labor and would have to deliver the babies early.

However, after a premature birth the couple was told their first baby, a little boy, did not make it.

Kate said she snatched Jamie away from the doctor, unwrapped him and told David to take off his clothes and to get into bed with her where they held him close to their hearts, because he was cold and they did not want him to die.

We just cried and cried,” Katie said.

We told him he had a sister and her name was Emily and she was going to be okay and he needed to look after her. And we had big plans for his life….and then he started to move.”

They told the midwives he was alive and doctors said Kate and David needed to say goodbye to Jamie, because, they said he would not make it.

But Kate would not let go – and finally – Jamie opened his eyes and grabbed his father’s finger.

It was the most astounding and amazing thing that had ever happened,” Kate said, “We realized it was because we had held him. And because he had the body heat of his mother and father and that soft cocooning warmth that’s what brought him back and gave him the time he needed to live.”

Jamie made a complete recovery and is now able to look after his sister, Emily.

Although this is an amazing promotion of the humanity of children born at 26 weeks by Johnson and Johnson, the money they donate to Planned Parenthood is being used to abort other babies who will never get a “loving tough” from their parents.

Angel Wings Memory Gowns was created to help families during the devastating loss of a baby. The group of volunteers repurposes wedding dresses into burial gowns for infants who don’t come home from the hospitals.

On their Facebook page they write, “Our talented seamstresses re-purpose wedding and formal dresses into complimentary burial gowns for babies who earn their angel wings.”

Founder, Jennifer Jones said that each gown is different, she told a Tennessee news station that, “On the back of each gown we cut out a heart and then place it on a tag for the mother to see. It’s got scripture on it that tells about us and what we do. We take several gowns of each size to various hospitals in the area,” she states.

It’s hard to find clothes for babies who are before forty weeks gestation. So when parents lose a child that young, they don’t have anything to put them in….every child no matter how small should get something that they are able to wear,” Jones said.

In Texas, tiny Gracelynn Rae is being rocked by her father as he reads her scriptures. She died shortly after being born.

A Dallas TV station reports that Gracelynn Rae will forever be wrapped in a very special gown made from his sister-in-law’s wedding dress.

It’s a little part of me that gets to go with her,” Gracelynn’s aunt, Jenny Leon tells the news station, “It was just the best gift that I could think of at the time.”

The dress will be made by NICU Helping Hands, a Fort Worth non-profit organization founded in 2013 which turns wedding gowns into tiny angel gowns.

The non-profit has 900 seamstresses nationwide and says that they have mailed over 3,000 gowns and have an additional 5,000 that they are currently processing.

Founder Lisa Grubbs thanks the volunteers for the dress donations, “This is what it meant to have somebody honor our baby and their life, no matter how short it was. Thank you for understanding that a child matters, even in death.”

Staff at San Joaquin General had never seen a baby this small survive, but this little girl born 15 weeks premature, just under 11 ounces, is finally going home.

According to pro-life sidewalk counselor Terri Lawler Palmquist , the hospital that is right behind the Family Planning Associates (FPA) abortion chamber and has had several transports from “botched” abortion emergencies!

Baby Chelsey survives though born at 23 weeks

Baby doctors have their schedules, but life doesn’t always abide by some official timetable.

And so months before Tamika Harris’ twin girls were due, she began feeling the pains of labor.

One of the daughters began pushing to leave Harris’ womb after just 22 weeks and hadn’t grown strong enough for the terrible adventure of birth.

So Harris was at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, with the pressure and pain. She felt the first twin crowning and shouted for the nurse, who came to speak to her in the calm voice of nurses everywhere.

Harris knows that voice. She uses it herself, as a 911 dispatcher for the village of Burnham, talking over the phone to the desperate and the terrified.

“She said, ‘OK, we’re just going to put you back into the bed,'” Harris recalled. “I’m a dispatcher. And when people call frantically, you use that calm voice. And I realized she was doing that with me. I’m thinking, ‘No, she’s not doing that! This is an emergency!'”

The first twin wasn’t ready, but Harris and her fiance, Charles Hansbrough, were told she was coming anyway, and with little chance of survival.

Chazey Hansbrough weighed just a little more than a pound when she was born on Oct. 1, 2010.

“We knew that she wasn’t going to make it,” Harris said. “Here’s my baby that I’ve been wanting, waiting for, for I don’t know how long, and she’s not making it. She’s going to die. … So I cuddled her, I kissed her.”

Less than five minutes after the birth, her daughter was gone. But the parents had no time to grieve.

“I had to actually snap out of it very quickly and I had to realize that I have another baby inside of me, that I can’t be so upset, so emotional that I deliver her and she doesn’t make it,” Harris said.

Doctors expected the other twin, daughter Chelsey, to follow quickly. But she didn’t. Something kept Chelsey back, kept her inside her mother, kept her safe long enough for her lungs to grow and save her life.

Chelsey stayed inside the womb for eight more days. That gave doctors enough time to give her mom two injections of steroids to promote the lung development. Those extra days made the difference between life and death.

Chelsey was born on Oct. 9, at 23 weeks and three days gestation. Babies born that early have only an 18 percent chance of survival, according to the National Institutes of Health.

But Chelsey survived. At birth she weighed 15.5 ounces.

She was the size of her daddy’s fist.

“It was like it was preset, like God had said, ‘I’m going to keep your baby for eight days. I’m going to give you this shot for two days, and then we’re going to have her,'” said Charles, her dad.

Chelsey stayed at the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit for 100 days.

There were transfusions. There were monitors beeping. In a NICU, a baby’s hand is so tiny when strapped to one of those boards with all the tubes and the wires extending, the hand waving as if holding a sail.,0,
