Adorable Ahuva's NICU Photo Shoot

Please enjoy our inspirational photos and consider supporting our mission to share hope with families who have a baby born prematurely or critically ill. Our programs include an online support group, the gift of photography, group events and meetings, information, and email support. Our mission is to connect parents and let them know they are not alone. We thank our supporters, volunteers, and donors for allowing us to touch the lives of NICU, preemie, and angel families. 

We pray these special memories will help the parents to remember how strong they were in overcoming a crisis situation.

A note from Mom:
"Ahuva Nava Hoffman was born at 34 weeks, 5 days. She was the smaller twin, who weighed in at 4lb, 4oz. Her younger twin sister, Rivka Chaya Hoffman, was 4lb 14oz. Unfortunately, she passed away when she was two weeks old. Ahuva Nava spent almost 5 weeks in the NICU between St. Joe's and Children's, and after learning how to eat, gaining some weight, and moving past her bite cell anemia from which she required two blood transfusions, we finally welcomed her home.

She is now 9 months old, and is learning to crawl. She is growing nicely, thank G-d and we are very happy to have her in our lives."

A note from Ken:
"Ahuva had just woke up from her morning nap when I arrived.  She was still somewhat sleepy, but quickly woke up and came alive.  She crawled around the floor rather quick, so taking her pictures was a fun experience.  We even stepped outside for some outdoor pictures too."
