‘Miracle Baby’: One of the smallest premature infants ever heads home
VALHALLA, N.Y. — After eight months in various hospitals, one of the smallest premature babies in the country is finally going home. Connor Florio is considered a “Miracle Baby.” When he was born in July at 26 weeks old, he weighed 11 ounces and could fit in the palm of your hand. After his parents, who live in Danbury, Connecticut, were told their child’s chance of survival was extremely low, they had Connor transferred to Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital's NICU in Westchester, New York.
