Robert and Molli Potter were desperate as they searched for a hospital that would care for their soon-to-be-born premature son, Cullen. Sixteen institutions refused to accept such a risky case. But the Potters knew deep down that this was a mistake.
For Robert and Molli, both 32, the road to parenthood hadn’t been an easy one. The couple, who live in Pensacola, Florida, had a seven-year-old son named Kayden. But Molli had also suffered a pair of miscarriages in trying to add to their family.
In 2018 Molli discovered she was expecting again. However it became clear that this pregnancy was just as fragile as the last two. She started bleeding three months into gestation, and, because of her past miscarriages, her doctors prescribed bed rest.
