Synopsis by Alice Day
Thanks to the ability of medical personnel to provide the intensive care necessary, more premature babies are surviving. These tiny "preemies" sometimes require months of costly care in neonatal units before they are able to go home with their parents. Dreams & Dilemmas poses interesting questions regarding the special nurturing of these infants, who can develop serious difficulties related to their too-early appearance in the world. Walter Cronkite is the narrator for the program, which features the problems faced by the parents of premature twin boys.
