We pray these special memories will help the parents to remember how strong they were in overcoming a crisis situation.
A note from Mom:"My husband and I welcomed our baby girl Margaret Claire Bokelman on August 5th, 2013 at 3:02 pm via c-section. She was 4 1/2 weeks early. She was 6lbs, 19 inches long. She had to spend 7 days in the NICU at St. Joseph Regional Health Center. I didn’t get to hold my precious girl until she was 5 days old. On that Friday, I got to hold her, feed her, see her eyes open and hear her cry all for the first time. She had some respiratory problems and then developed jaundice. We have been home for 2 weeks now. I felt like it was the longest week I have ever experienced. Once the doctor told us she could go home, it was such a joyous feeling."
