Emma's NICU Grad Photo Shoot

Please enjoy Preemie Prints' families’ inspirational story & photos. 
Consider supporting our mission to share hope with families who have a baby born prematurely or critically ill. We thank our supporters, Preemie Prints volunteers, and donors for allowing us to continue touching the lives of NICU, preemie, and angel families.


We pray these special memories from Preemie Prints 
will help families heal and remember how strong 
they were in overcoming their NICU journey together.

A NICU STORY | THOUGHTS FROM MOM

“ Emma was due on 1/3/16. Instead of her arriving close to New Years, I unexpectedly had to be induced on Thanksgiving weekend. She was sent to the NICU initially for respiratory distress. Being involved in her care times helped us get through each day. When I was discharged, the NICU case manager arranged for us to board at the hospital while there was availability and put us on the waiting list for the Ronald McDonald House. It was a relief since we lived over 30 miles from the hospital. We're so thankful for the doctors, nurses, case manager, and everything they did for our family during Emma's hospital stay. She is now almost 11 months old and is doing great! The NICU can seem like a scary place but try finding comfort in knowing your baby is a strong little fighter and is in very good hands.”



Emma’s photo session was taken and donated by Preemie Prints volunteer photographer, Blaire Ring.

A Note From Blaire:
“After a surprise entrance a bit early to the world, this sweet girl is doing beautifully! She really enjoyed her time exploring outside and is learning to walk on the grass.”
