In July 2011, Kellie Hoiness was giddy over her upcoming 21-week doctor’s appointment. She and her husband, Marshall, would learn the gender of their twins. As first-time parents, each appointment was a milestone.
They learned they were having baby girls – and that their seemingly normal pregnancy was anything but. One of the twins – Khloe – had blood flow issues. She wasn’t growing properly.

>It’s hard for me to describe what it has meant for me to be able to partner with Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota to raise money for their neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) over the past three years. But what I do know is that I owe 28 years of good health to all who cared for me when I was born. Unfortunately I never had a chance to personally know and thank the nurses and doctors who were able to successfully deliver me.

Holding your baby for the first time is something that all parents look forward to, but it's different for parents of preemies. We can't hold our babies immediately after they're born. We have to wait and just watch and gently touch through the isolette until they are healthy enough. We waited 20 long days before we could hold Kaleb, but it was the most amazing feeling!

What it means to me to wake up each day and know that I am living is truly incredible. I was born with a congenital heart defect called levo-Transposition of the greater arteries. If I would've been born just a few years earlier, it is doubtful I would've survived. It is because of the doctors and nursed at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota that I am here to share my story of a life that I don’t take for granted.
