D & H were born at 23 weeks 6 days, during their 119 days in the NICU we used Mrs. Potato Heads to track their growth. We took weekly photos next to each girls Potato Head so everyone could see how small they started (smaller) and how they grew over the weeks/months and now years. We started a 501(c)3 Non Profit and have now sent about 1,000 packages all over the US including Alaska and Hawaii. Our girls had a rough NICU stay and this is our way to give back. In addition in the last year we published a NICU Baby Milestone Book completely illustrated, filled with journal pages, milestone trackers (first time they were held, their birth story etc..), guest pages all NICU related and preemie friendly. Our mission is to provide HOPE when it seems there is none, a place to turn when you feel alone and success stories to hold onto.
