The Wagner Family

At 23 weeks, Zahava Wagner was born weighing barely a pound and no longer than the palm of a hand.  The devoted MMC NICU doctors, nurses, and therapists, were intergral not only to her recovery, but in pointing out encouringing signs, and their positivity empowered Zahava's family to have hope.  After 96 long days, Zahava was able to go home where she continues to develop and can only be described as a "miracle" by her family.
