When we were trying to start our family a stay at the NICU never once even crossed our minds. When we found out that we were having quints we then knew that the NICU was in our future. We were not prepared for the experience, nor all of the emotions that come with having children in the NICU. You literally leave your heart with strangers. You have to have a level of trust that you never knew you could have. We were not prepared to lose a baby, and then watch 4 more fight to live. Our experience could have been alot different and we feel very blessed to be where we are now. While at the NICU we were blessed to have support of former NICU families, we will forever be thankful for that. Please help us keep the support coming for past, current and future NICU families. Please join us in raising funds for the 5th Annual Premature Oktoberfest event, benefitting local NICU families.
