A Florida couple is celebrating the homecoming of their baby boy who was born a 1-pound micro-preemie after he spent more than 100 days in the NICU.

Finn James Hill, lovingly nicknamed “Fighting Finn,” was released from Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando Sept. 10.

At birth, doctors gave Finn a 50% chance of survival.

“It didn’t hit me until we left and it was the three of us for the first time,” mom Jessica Hill of Lakeland, told “Good Morning America.” “I knew we wouldn’t have to take him back. It was everything we hoped and prayed for.”
