"When William Daley was born prematurely on March 8, he weighed only 2 pounds 6 ounces.
He turned 6 weeks old Monday, and little William is getting bigger by the day, thanks in part to breast milk donated by a stranger because his mother could not produce it.'We're absolutely thrilled and blessed to have this option for our son,' said his mother, Carol Daley of Arlington. 'We're very thankful that women are willing to do this....The Fort Worth Milk Bank -- a consortium involving Cook Children's Medical Center, Harris Methodist Fort Worth hospital and Baylor All Saints Medical Center-- will be located in the Child Study Center. The bank, which is in the final stages of becoming a nonprofit organization, has collection sites in Bedford and Plano.'" [A second milk bank in Texas, yay! - JC]
