3rd smallest baby born in U.S. now 10 years old.


Naperville Sun HealthAware column:

Littlest newborn now 10 years old
Edward Hospital | Submitted column
Aug. 19, 2014

Picture a typical fifth-grade girl. One Direction, Girl Scouts, American Girl dolls.

Zoe Koz likes all of the above. She has braces, rolls her eyes at her parents’ jokes and loves to swim. Koz, 10, of Plainfield, epitomizes a fifth-grader in almost every way — except that she happens to be the physical size of an average first-grader.

She’s come a long way from January 2004, when she was fighting for her life in the Edward Hospital Newborn Intensive Care Unit. At the time, born prematurely weighing 10.8 ounces, Zoe was the third-smallest baby ever born in the U.S. and the ninth-smallest in the world.

Read the rest of the story and see photos of Zoe.
