Five years ago, my son was born 13 weeks early. I took the first picture when his chances of survival were quite slim. I took the second picture this morning.

This is a contribution to Photo Friday. The challenge is “Wealth“. Both pictures were taken with an original Canon Digital Rebel. The first one was a month or so after I got it.
