So I know you are sitting on the edge of your seat wondering how my visit to the NICU went this year!!!!
While I didn't get to see any of Alex's old doctors or his primary nurses. I did see a few nurses that had Alex one or two times, but that isn't why I went.
I went to see the parents.
One mom in particular was sitting on the couch at her child's bedside, and she just looked hopeless. Maybe she had just been given horrible news, maybe she was just exhausted from the many nights she had been up. Maybe this wasn't what she had hoped for, prayed for, or dreamed of.
She looked hopeless, and I looked her in the eyes, and smiled.
I wanted to reach out and hug her, but I'm not allowed in the rooms, so we just made eye contact, and she knew I had been there, on the couch without any hope.
All 57 babies got an ornament, and thanks to you all 57 mamma's have a glimmer of hope!
