Baby Z

I spent the first 4 weeks of Baby Z's life with him... I witnessed his first breath as I wiped down his precious First Mama's forehead with a cold washcloth while she so bravely pushed... I witnessed her very last moments with the life she had so lovingly sustained within her.

I snuggled him daily, I bonded with his nurses and doctors while we all did our best to get to know a seemingly-complicated little guy who was changing our lives without us even knowing... I cried out to Jesus to help me find his family. I prayed for his First Mama who's heart was broken ...I prayed that she would find peace in the life-changing and life-giving decision she made for her son...

 I prayed that I would live up to the profound responsibility she entrusted to me.

I prayed for his Forever Family, wherever they were. I knew Jesus was preparing their hearts for this precious miracle... I prayed that the magnitude of the story of his life would be evident to them... I prayed that they would take comfort in knowing that he was loved from day 1... that he never went a single second without a family...

In fact, his family grew daily as myself, Ms. Allison and Mrs. Dana took turns spending time with this precious life... as we did our best to pour love into him... not realizing that HE was the one changing US with every second that passed by.

Baby Boy's First Mama made a beautiful plan for his life and his arrival was anticipated by so many! God took a little time to reveal the intricate details of His plan for this little boy and so we patiently waited, honored to be his official snugglers until it was time to tell the world the story of one of God's most precious creations....

about a little boy who we lovingly named 'Baby Z'.

We shared Baby Z's story with you on June 2, 2017 and asked you for a few simple favors...

Read. Pray. Share.

But let's take it back a few days to May 24, 2017 when Anita Miron posted a viral photo of her, her sweet girl Scarlett, and her precious son Jack on Facebook. The Miron family lost their son at 32 weeks on May 24, 2016. Shortly after losing Jack, the Mirons lost their second sweet boy, William at 20 weeks. Their open hearts, passion for special needs, and decision to grow their family through adoption while carrying on the legacy of their 2 boys caught the attention of ABC who posted their story on June 2, 2017.

Baby Z's First Mama entrusted her future and the future of her son to Colores Adoptions. My role as Family Services Manager for Colores Adoptions and the influence YOU all have when you share these special babies on this blog joined forces on June 2, 2017 when Baby Z's story went live in your hearts and computers.

10,000 shares. 350,000 views. 72 inquiries to date.

But that first one.

That first email;

"In a nutshell we have lost two babies in utero. Both were lost by a chord accident. Our first who we lost at 32 weeks had Down syndrome. We had prepared ourselves for him. We had opened our hearts to special needs. We were ready. So we have decided to extend that love to someone who needs it. ~ Anita"

Anita woke up on June 2, 2017 to a frantic message from her sweet friend, Cate who shared with her Ms. Allison's post about Baby Z that linked back here to his story...

Isn't that just like our God?!

A moment to read... a heartfelt prayer... a simple share.

You, my precious friends once again faithfully and obediently allowed yourselves to be used in one of the most profound and miraculous stories that Jesus has ever written.

It is my greatest joy and honor to introduce you to Baby Z... now and forever named Baby Warren Miron.

He is a life-changer. He is a world-changer. He has forever changed me.

His Forever Family is blessed beyond measure.

"He predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will."
Ephesians 1:5

"And whoever welcomes one such child in my name also welcomes me."
Matthews 18:5

"For you created my inmost being; your knitted me together in my mother's womb."
Psalm 139:13

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made!"
Psalm 139:14


Dozens of inquiries have been received from families who are genuinely ready to welcome a special needs baby into their hearts and home. It has proven to be a huge and difficult task to respond to each inquiry, however all home studies and contact information has been saved for future special needs babies who need a family. If you or someone you know are home study approved, please email and we will include you in our new special needs database.


If you are an expecting mama who is considering if adoption could be the right choice for you and your baby, please email

URGENT- Baby Z Needs A Family


Baby Z

* This is a SPECIAL NEEDS placement... I have done my best to start this research for you and have linked to most pertinent information within this post, however Baby Boy's needs are extensive and much will remain unknown until he is older and has a chance to 'prove' himself; PLEASE do your own research before inquiring about him. Educate yourself... no one has time to do it for you ;-)

* If you do not have a CURRENT, VALID HOME STUDY, and are NOT ready to travel quickly, DO NOT INQUIRE about this situation.

* I will filter all inquiries about Baby Z. If your INITIAL EMAIL does NOT include your attached, valid, and special needs-approved Home Study AND a PDF of your profile, your email will NOT be returned.  Current and redacted records for Baby Z will be available to any email containing all of the requested information... it will be the responsibility of the Home Study approved family to consult with practitioners and specialists regarding information contained in Baby Z's records. Specific information about Baby Z's location, name, or photos will not be shared until his FOREVER FAMILY is in place from a legal standpoint.

Got it?!? Good. 

NOW... let me introduce you to a little man who has my entire heart. He is already a life-changer... a world-changer.

All of the following information is based on Baby Z's medical records provided to us by his physicians;

* Based on the information we have, Baby Z was a full-term 38 week Hispanic male baby who is now 3 weeks old and is in North Carolina. He was 5 pounds 11 ounces at birth and has gained about 2 pounds since birth.

* Baby Z's initial apgar scores were 7 & 9.

* Baby Z exhibited poor feeding skills (poor suck) and dysmorphic features (low-set ears, wide spaced eyes, flattened nasal bridge, rocker bottom feet), which led his Care Team to transfer him from the infant nursery to the NICU.

* A second examination of Baby Z's physical features was performed at 4 days old and the practitioner noted no dysmorphic features other than slightly posteriorly located but normally formed ears and slight rocker bottom feet.

* A full Macro Genetic panel was completed after birth and all Macro results were NORMAL for a typical XY male. Micro Genetic testing was also done and those results are still pending. These could take another 3 weeks to arrive and he will need a family before then.

* An MRI of Baby Z's brain was done at 3 days old and showed an Absent Septum Pellucidum, Hypoplastic Corpus Callosum, Hypomyelination, and a premature-looking Cortical Brain Convolution. The Cerebellum looked small and there is a cyctic dilation of the posterior fossa with a possible vermis hypoplasia, and small volume intraventricular hemorrhage without hydrocephalus. Baby Z's radiologist noted that the abnormalities in his MRI indicate possible neurological complications, including seizures, learning disabilities, speech delays, and feeding challenges. A follow-up brain MRI will be suggested at 6 months of age to gauge the growth of the brain and confirm original results or determine any changes.

* So far, his heart ultra-sound showed a healthy heart.

* A Physical Therapy consult showed age-appropriate reflexes.

* So far, his ophthalmology consult as well as the brain MRI showed a healthy optic nerve, indicating healthy vision.

* After working with Speech/ Feeding Therapists and his GI doctor, Baby Z's team decided that it would be most beneficial for Baby Z to have a temporary PEG Gastronomy Tube so he could move forward and find his Forever Family outside of the hospital setting. This tube was recently placed in hopes that Baby Z's family will find him soon and be able to take him home quickly where they can work diligently with him and his therapists on his feeding so his mouth muscles get stronger and the tube can be removed.

* MUCH of Baby Z's future is unknown... not unlike any of ours. He will need as much love and attention as any child and he will surely thrive with a family who is dedicated to helping him reach his potential. This little guy will show us who he is as he grows and his family will need to say YES to loving him regardless of those unknowns.

* Fees; $21,000  (these fees include agency fees and NC attorney fees. They do not include post placement visits in the families home state or finalization)

* Baby Z's First Mom had a very specific plan in place for her son. She is determined to see him with a family who can provide for him, invest in him, and love him as he grows! She does not want contact with Baby Z's Forever Family, at this time but has asked for us to inform her when he is settled in his forever family.

FOR INTERESTED AND QUALIFIED FAMILIES;  A PDF of  a state approved Home Study and a PDF of a potential Adoptive Families profile should be emailed to . Your initial email should include a PDF of your special needs approved Home Study and a PDF of your adoption profile as well as the following information;

* Names

* Primary contact info, including email address, home address, and phone numbers

* State of Residence

* Date Home Study Expires

* Reasons for considering a special needs placement

 Any email received that does not contain all of the above WILL NOT BE RESPONDED TO. Any qualified email will be responded to; response will include a redacted copy of Baby Z's records for your practitioner and/or specialist's review. The hospital has expressed that Baby Z will be ready for discharge within 2 weeks (if not sooner) and a family should be prepared to give their full YES and be ready to travel within that time period upon agency and attorney approval. 

In short; This sweet little man is a Leap of Faith, as many of our precious babies have been. We've managed to unite them ALL with their Forever Families and I know we can do it again.
If you believe you could be the family this sweet little man has been waiting for, please email as soon as possible with all required information!

And if not... you will do him a enormous favor by simply clicking 'share'... as many times as it takes. And pray. Please pray for this precious life. I know firsthand that these sweet babies... some of God's more precious creations... grow and change and prove themselves best when they're nurtured and loved the way God nurtures and loves all of us. YOU can be that person who leads him to his FOREVER.

Consider... Pray... Share.

That's it.

Let's change some lives, friends.

* This is a placement through Colores Adoptions; a licensed agency that Baby Z's First Mama trusted to help her fulfill her wishes for her baby boy. If you or someone you know is considering adoption for a child or wanting to know more about growing a family through adoption, please email *
