Jack's NICU 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.

“Jack was born at 24 weeks and 4 days. Weighing 1lb and 8 oz. At 30 weeks he was 2 lbs and was switched to nasal prong bubble cpap.

Our NICU journey started out much like every parents’ I presume, nerve-wrecking and scary. We walked into the NICU after I delivered Jack at 24 weeks and 4 days. He was born September 10th 2015 at 1:23 in the morning. I remember looking down at this little tiny baby and feeling so deeply sad that this was the way things had turned out for our family. As the days went on, tests were run, x rays, IVs were given, countless conversations and meeting so many people daily that our heads were spinning by the time we would leave each day We finally started getting into a routine, and now we had our primary nurses. Boy does that make a difference. It is because of our amazing care team at Seton that we feel as comfortable as we do. They love and care for Jack the way I believe they would care for their own children. We are so grateful to them for their line of work, their big hearts and the compassion during difficult and trying times. Each day Jack gets stronger and bigger and it is such a blessing to share that with a fantastic group of people who have your babies back!”

A Note From Sabrena:
“As soon as I met Lindsay and Chris, I could tell they were very loving, caring and dedicated parents. They live 2 hours away and yet are at the hospital with Jack as often as possible. The way they both interacted with Jack showed me they were so very much in love with their baby. And Jack is such a sweet baby, so happy and alert and clearly well taken care of! I am honored to have been able to take photos for this very deserving family.”
