The Reading / Listening – Babies – Level 0

The world’s smallest baby left hospital after 13 months. Yu Xuan weighed 212 grams when she was born at around 25 weeks. Doctors gave her a “limited chance of survival”. They helped her to live. They said they were happy and proud. They wished her well and said she “beat the odds every day”.

Yu Xuan’s mother was grateful to the doctors and nurses. She called them wonderful. Yu Xuan still has problems. She has a lung disease. She has a special machine at home to help her breathe. Her doctors said she would get better. They said she never gave up. They called her “extraordinary” and “a ray of hope”.
