Wiersma Family Blog

A glimpse into our lives as a family with micro-preemies. Our twins boys (Lovingly referred to as our Miracle Men) were born almost 16 weeks early.

Our journey continues when our son Max was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 3. This is his story....

Go Boys go!!! We are on the move!!!

We just got back from a fantastic pulmonary appointment! Max can be off his vent while he is awake!!! He needs to be on a small amount of oxygen. But, he can crawl around with only one small tube instead of 3!!! The doctor also got rid of one medication and lowered the dose of another. We are so thrilled! Things are moving in the right direction.

Wes is also doing great! He is standing up without help. No steps yet but he has his balance! He is starting to make more vocalizations. He is full of energy and spunk. He has learned to crawl through the end tables to escape into the kitchen. He is very...spirited.  :)

We are loving this new phase! We are enjoying every minute of all these new developments.

Thank you God for all of these amazing blessings! Thank you for our little Miracle Men and their amazing growth and development! Thank you for everyday we have to watch them change and learn new things!


  1. Mark and Kate, I knew it would not be long and Max was "on his own". Soon he too will be crawling through the end tables and escaping to the kitchen. God is good...all the time!!
