New parents seldom are completely ready to welcome their first baby, but for Stephanie and Eric Ray, their daughter’s early arrival caught them by surprise.
Liberty Marie Ray was born eight weeks premature June 28, 2012. At birth, she weighed 2 pounds, 10 ounces and was 15 inches long.
“We had no crib, no overnight bag, no nothing,” Stephanie said. “You’re never really ready, but we really weren’t ready. We had nothing in her room.”
