My Story

I created this page because I have lived the challenging journey of having babies in NICU.

I created this page because I have lived the challenging journey of having babies in NICU. It is a journey I didn't choose to be part of, yet it was there and like myself and my family there are thousands of babies in NICU and families living it. The uncertainty, wondering when your baby will come home, if she comes home. The way NICU and everyone there becomes your second home and your family. You bond with the family with the preemie in the isolette next to you. You witness the empty isolette knowing that baby did not go home and mourn that loss like your own. The doubt, the fear, the love, all emotions lived daily behind the doors of a quiet NICU. Hand to Hold is a wonderful organization that helps families cope with the reality of preemie babies. Not only during the difficulties of a hospital stay, but also with the challenges of bringing a preemie baby home. Please make an effort to support this Organization.
