"Our Pound of Hope"
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) can be a very intimidating place for parents. When I realized that we were going to be residing in the NICU for a long period of time I started reading books, websites, and message boards to help prepare us for the experience. Unfortunately, nothing can truly prepare you for the NICU experience. The “rollercoaster” that it is often referred is an understatement. Life in the NICU does not change by the week, or even the day, but by the minute. The norm is that babies take a few steps forward, and then a few steps back. Fortunately, there are many happy stories to come out of the NICU. We are truly blessed that Owen, our former 28 week micro preemie, did make it home after 128 days. Unfortunately, five years ago we were not so luckily when we lost Andrew, our full term son, in the very same NICU.
Preemie Prints is a 501(c)3 non profit organization that was founded in Central Texas by a dear friend of mine, Amber Collier, who had 32 week identical twin girls. The organization is dedicated in sharing hope with families experiencing the difficulties of life in the NICU with a premature or sick baby through information, complimentary photography, gift bags, support, and prayer. Along with offering daily support, for NICU families and also for families of angels, through a national online support group our local chapters are offering face-to-face H.O.P.E. (Helping Other Parents Endure) meetings that help link current NICU parents with parents of NICU graduates. Please help support our group so that we may continue our mission and so that we can expand to help provide additional support for our local NICU families and babies. Please join our team by purchasing one or more calendars. Not only will you be helping local NICU families you will be starting 2012 with our favorite micro miracle, Owen, as Mr. January.
