As an only child, Jennifer Degl's daydreams always included being part of a large family. Her favorite television show was-and still is-Little House on the Prairie. When she and her husband, John, decided to try for a fourth child, neither of them had any inkling as to the tumultuous journey that lie ahead.
Those closest to Jennifer describe her as stubborn, exceptionally determined, and optimistic-and Jennifer agrees with them. And those are the exact traits that pulled her through her life-threatening pregnancy, the birth of her micro preemie baby, and the first four months of her micro preemie's life in the NICU.
Jennifer is a wife, teacher, amateur astronomer and rock collector, but her favorite role is being a mom. She resides in Putnam County, NY, with her husband and four children.
