NICU Survival Kits in the Media

fox59 Monday a local news station, Fox59 News, spotlighted our family and our NICU Survival Kit Project in their “Female Focus” segment.  I was grateful for the opportunity to spread the word on this project.  They did a top-notch job on our story, and were very generous at covering my nervous jitters, ramblings, and word fumbles.

The video, pictures, and dialogue of this story, is a great reminder of our own journey with 4 little miracles and the blessing they are in our lives. Our desire is to reach other families experiencing the uncertainty of the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), that became our boys first home for their first 3-5 weeks of life.  If you would like more information on our project, check this link or the toolbar menu labeled “NICU Survival Kits” or contact me at quatro_mama {at} yahoo {dot} com .

PS  Hope my Quad Mama Sistas enjoy your Shout-Out!
