Letter to NICU parent

I am not surprised, but I am overwhelmingly encouraged to see that there are other organizations that are dedicated to helping parents make it through their time in the NICU.  I found this letter, and it is inspiring and perfect in almost every way so I wanted to share. Because HOPE is needed every day, whether its day one in the NICU or day 564. There is no straight line to walk, there is no NORMAL in the NICU.  So, for those who want to support those they know who are fighting this fight and who are wondering what they could do, click through the link above to read the letter on the blog Life With Jack. PRINT this letter and give it to the ones who need it. It will matter and it will make a difference, if only for a moment, I promise you it will. 

Cheers & Hugs

NICU experiences – We want to hear your story

Dear friends,

By now you have hopefully heard or read our story / the story of Delilah, the inspiration behind the Tangerine Owl Project.  We’re happy to share her story with you, but moreso, we want to hear your stories.  We invite any of you who have experienced time in the NICU to share with us. Near and far, the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between. 

Are you there now with a preemie?  Did you get to take your precious one home having “graduated” from the NICU?  Are you still battling with the loss of a dear little angel? Struggling to find the right diagnosis?  Maybe you’re on day 542 of your child’s NICU stay – it’s old school by now, but you have a story –

There is so much that can happen, so quickly and so turbulently, so please share, and know that you are not alone going through this.
