Lindsay Vaquero of Vallejo, 25, says she never even considered letting her tiny newborn son die, despite his having been among the smallest premature babies UCSF officials had ever seen.

Noah was born at just 25 weeks and weighed just 14 ounces.

At six months, Noah is still in the hospital struggling to be stable enough to go home, and his mother has rarely left his side in all that time, despite having a 2-year-old daughter and a 33-year-old husband at home.
