“It’s amazing how many people have gone through this ‘roller coaster.’ Thank goodness we have resources like Hand to Hold and a bunch of other wonderful pages and groups. Now it’s easy when we know someone is about to go through the NICU battle; we have a host of folks to help guide them and a ton of success stories to shed a little light on the path.”– I. Lipton, mother of Sir Dylan the Dragonslayer,
Preemie Power Contest 2013 Participant
