CORAL GABLES, Fla., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Amillia Taylor, born at 21 weeks and six days turns one tomorrow (Oct. 24, 2007). Weighing a little over 9 ounces and measuring 9 1/2 inches long (the size of a pen), Amillia Taylor is the first baby known to survive after a gestation period of fewer than 23 weeks. The family celebrated this milestone in Amillia's hometown of Miami, Florida by throwing a big party in Amillia's honor which was attended by family members, doctors, nurses, physical therapists and other care takers whom have been instrumental in the survival of this infant. The family's representative Amy Bales, of Bales & Bales, P.A., is happy to report that the child is doing extremely well. Amillia now weighs about 17lbs 7oz and is 27 1/2 inches long.

Since Amillia's release from the hospital on February 21, 2007, her mother, Sonja Taylor, has dedicated herself fulltime to the health of her child. At the time of her release, Amillia weighed 4 pounds and required the assistance of an oxygen machine. Sonja's life consisted of taking her daughter to daily visits to specialist who monitored the baby closely. As a result, Amillia suffers no major health problems and has surpassed the expectations of all of her care takers. Her daily visits have now turned into monthly visits for the purpose of tracking Amillia's progress and her mother has been able to return to work as a school teacher for the public school system. Asked, if knowing the plight of this last year, if they would do it again the parents respond, "Absolutely, she's our little miracle."
