|There is nothing more frightening for new parents than to hear the
words, “Your baby needs to be admitted to the NICU.” Immediately they
are thrown into a world of loud noises from the monitors and hospital
machines. The doctors and nurses use terms that sound much like a
foreign language and all parents really want to know is if their baby
is okay and if he or she will be able to go home soon. This reality has
been captured perfectly by Bethany through her beautiful drawings and stories of
those who have lived and overcome the NICU nightmare. Each story highlights that experience through the eyes of parents and other family members. There is so much hope found in the pages of this book, you cannot help but be touched by these precious infants as they fight for their lives in NICUs all around the world.
