English family

 
Tyler and Lindsay English's son Rory Hayden English was born nearly 6 weeks premature. His early arrival and the days and nights that would follow were some of the most emotionally trying times in their lives . Rory would spend 13 days in the NICU and they are proud to say is a big and strong toddler! Rory's early arrival and difficult journey, although hard for Lindsay and Tyler, was one of greater fortune. Not all premature babies are given a clear bill of health once they leave the NICU. "We were fortunate and Rory is living a happy and healthy life with us in our home in Simsbury," Tyler said. "Alongside Rory and March of Dimes we want to help those future babies and families that will endure the same hardships we faced." They promised since Rory's early arrival into this world that they would give back and help all moms and babies get a healthy start to life, and they are doing so with Team "Rory English" at this year's Hartford March for Babies. Join them in the effort to give every baby a fighting chance!
