Bear's parents say they are looking forward to being home. Matt Cantrell says, "It'll be nice to cook our own food and sleep in our own bed and to just relax for a little while." Mari Cantrell adds, "We haven't been, all of us together, in our house since new year's eve." The cantrells are no strangers to raising children born prematurely.
