Msn.com – Kate Ogg has an answer ready for the day her son Jamie asks who’s older, he or his twin sister:
“Technically, you’re two minutes older,” she’ll tell him, “but Emily’s been alive longer.”
Shortly after Jamie and Emily were born prematurely at 27 weeks on March 25, 2010, doctors told Ogg and her husband David that Jamie had died. Nurses placed his limp body across his mother’s bare chest so she could say goodbye.
But after five minutes, Jamie began to move. The baby’s doctor told the Oggs his movements were reflexive and not a sign of life. But as his mother continued cuddling him, Jamie opened his eyes. Kate put some breast milk on her finger, and he eagerly accepted it. Their tiny baby grew stronger and stronger in his mother’s arms, and their final goodbye turned into a hello.
“I’d carried him inside me for only six months – not long enough – but I wanted to meet him, and to hold him, and for him to know us,” Kate Ogg told TODAY’s Ann Curry in 2010. “We’d resigned ourselves to the fact that we were going to lose him, and we were just trying to make the most of those last, precious moments.”
“We feel so fortunate,” David Ogg told TODAY. “We’re the luckiest people in the world.”
