MUST SEE: Premature baby “graduates” from the NICU


Alabama (CNN)- A premature baby’s miraculous recovery is being celebrated with pomp and circumstance.

Little Cullen Potter was born 18 weeks premature. He weighed just under 14 ounces and was given only a two percent chance of survival. Determined to fight, his parents brought him to the University of South Alabama Children’s Hospital. After months in the NICU, Cullen now weighs 5 pounds, 11 ounces and has been given a clean bill of health. On his last day at the hospital, his mom dressed the little graduate in a teeny cap and gown. Video of the celebration went viral on social media. The couple says they hope their story will teach other parents to always seek options.
