As a way to increase awareness of what the families we serve go through, we are starting a new monthly feature allowing families who’ve had a NICU stay to share their stories. We hope that eventually these will be families that were able to utilize the NICU care packages that we provide at our local hospitals.
I have met many people through Mikayla’s Grace already whose lives were touched by a baby that was born too soon, and thankfully many of them are success stories like the one I want to share today. I met Sarah through Mikayla’s Grace and she donated about thirteen of her son Caleb’s books that will be passed onto other NICU babies. I am so grateful that she is willing to share Caleb’s story with us.
Today is a special day for this family as they celebrate the 2 year anniversary of Caleb’s NICU graduation!
On May 29th, we will celebrate the 2 year anniversary of our beautiful little boy coming home. However, when Caleb came home on May 29th, 2009 he was already 3 months old; let me start at the beginning.
