Ward Miles was born three and a half months premature. You'll first see him at four days old, the first time his mama Lyndsey got the chance to hold him. You can see her joy, fear, and sadness all at once as she cradles her super tiny son who is covered with tubes and monitors. But Ward was a fighter, and came home from the NICU a few months later, near his original due date (and on his mother's birthday). You can read more of his story at HuffPo.
Ward's father, filmmaker and photographer Benjamin Scot Miller, made this video of his first year as a birthday gift for Lyndsey the next year. You may want to have a hankie ready. -via Daily Picks and Flicks
