The amazing story of baby Tru, born weighing just 1 pound – let’s hear it for this brave girl

All babies born are a gift from God, a treasure unto this world that restore our faith in all that is good.

A woman falling pregnant is most often a time for celebration; a time where the entire family can get excited over welcoming a new life and envisioning the bright future that is to come.

Of course, few pregnancies are without their trials. Delivering a newborn can be fraught with risk – even with all the wonders of modern science, things can and do go wrong.

The story of little Tru Wende Beare is an amazing one. Born 14-weeks premature, weighing just 1 pound, she was in a fight right from the very start of her life.

Her mom was able hold baby Tru for the first time eleven days after her birth. Thanks to the efforts of the team at Royal Columbian Hospital, in New Westminster, Canada, Tru grew stronger. Her fight, however, was far from over.

Tru became sick and for a number of weeks she was kept in an incubator that helped her to stay alive. At day 54, her dad was able to cuddle her for the first time, and he loved every moment of it.
