Wilmington baby is finally home after nearly 7 months in the NICU

WILMINGTON – A little warrior with a big heart received his long-awaited homecoming on Sunday. Later almost seven months in the NICU at Beth Israel Hospital, Abel is home in Wilmington for the first time.

Abel came into the world weighing just one pound and eight ounces.

Sunday was an emotional day for Abel’s family. The hospital staff had the opportunity to say goodbye and sent Abel off with balloons and bubbles.

“Finally being able to experience our son at home with our family, with our children, I feel like we can all thrive now. The mother’s guilt was surreal, it’s been a long time coming and I can finally take a breath and enjoy our son so It’s great,” said mom Shana Alexander.

Abel’s father and his three brothers are equally excited that he is finally home.
