His mom and Dad call him little boy wonder - for good reason. This year, Kieran is the March of Dimes National Ambassador. Just over a week ago, the Whittstruck family traveled to the White House.
This week they came back to Sky Ridge Medical Center. He spent the first month of his life there in the newborn intensive care unit. Seeing it again brought a lot of emotions.
"For him to get to see what we often refer to when we come back to Colorado as his first home," Shanlini Whittstruck, Kieran's mother, said. "He understood that this is where he was born and these are the folks that took care of him."
Kieran's parents say their son survived because of the nurses and doctors at Sky Ridge and the medical advances supported by the March of Dimes.
"The outcome wasn't necessarily going to be this positive so the opportunity to travel the country and share our story with others and encourage others to get involved with March for Babies and to support the littlest members of society, really means a lot to us," Shanlini Whittstruck said.
Every March of Dimes National Ambassador has had the chance to meet the President since the Truman administration.
