LOOK: 'Preemie' Kids Take Inspiring 'Before and After' Photos
A photo campaign is bringing hope to parents of preemies.
The L'il Aussie Prems Foundation has been posting photo submissions of healthy, happy children holding photos of themselves as premature infants.
The Australian organization is asking parents who want to contribute to simply take a photo of their child holding an image from their time in hospital and share it on social media with the hashtag #lilaussieprems, #foot4prems or #green4prems.
A birth is considered premature, or preterm, when it happens before the mother is 37 weeks pregnant.
This month, the organization is celebrating its sixth year of raising awareness with its "Wear Green for Premmies" campaign.
