It's a story of a mother's love for her baby, and the video has gone viral.

Benjamin Scot and Lyndsey Miller's son was born three and a half months early and weighed just 1.5 pounds.

Benjamin filmed the first year of his son's life to show his miraculous progress. He gave Lyndsey the video as a gift, according to the description with the video.

"He was born way too early, and the obstacles he had to overcome were really big, but not bigger than our God," Benjamin Miller said.

The video starts with Lyndsey holding her son, Ward Miles, for the first time – he was four days old. It goes on to document Ward's 107 days in the neonatal intensive care unit and when he's finally able to go home.

Benjamin Miller thanked the doctors, nurses and staff who helped his son.

"It's because of you that my son ever stood a chance to make it home!" Miller said.
