Born at 2 lbs., a now healthy baby Alyse is home for the holidays after receiving life-saving care at U-M C.S. Mott Children's Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

ANN ARBOR, MI - Dianna and Vincent Kazimierczuk always dreamed of having a child of their own. After a heartbreaking six miscarriages, however, the couple decided to adopt 17-month-old Dominic last year and settled into life with their beautiful new son.


Then, to the couple's surprise and delight, Dianna discovered she was 18 weeks pregnant. But only 10 weeks after receiving the joyous news of her pregnancy, Dianna developed preeclampsia, a dangerous medical condition that can jeopardize the life of both the unborn baby and the mother.

Doctors were forced to deliver baby Alyse at only 28 weeks gestation. And at 2 lbs. 7 ounces, the newborn faced a rollercoaster of life-threatening medical problems during the two months she was cared for and treated at the Holden Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.

Today, weighing in at 8 lbs., baby Alyse is home and healthy for the holidays with her family
