    Mom's message to others in a similar situation is inspiring and full of hope.

    Sofia Viktoria Birina was born on October 2 at just 22 weeks and 4 days gestation. With a 10% chance of surviving labor itself, the little Scottish girl defied the doctors and finally went home on February 10.

    Weighing in at just 1 pound 1 ounce — about the size of a block of butter — the tiny preemie arrived screaming into the world. Her parents Egija and Inars, who come from Latvia, shared that what followed was “132 of the longest and scariest days of their lives,” in a report with the BBC.

    The baby’s birth came as a big surprise to the couple who now live in Lanarkshire, Scotland. At the 20 week sonograph everything looked fine. Then just one week later, Egija had sudden pains and was admitted to the University Hospital Wishaw. After bed rest, little Sofia decided she couldn’t wait any longer and was delivered safely.
