This book celebrates the tender first moments with preemies in the NICU, acknowledging the fear while also embracing the beauty of every child who’s born into the world. It is a book of hopeful reflection, sharing the details of the NICU experience.
No one expects their child to end up in the NICU, and when they do it can be an isolating experience. This experience, still, gives them unexpected time together, in the quiet.
Based on a real-life experience, author Paige Bautz was inspired to write this book for her daughter Presley, who was a preemie - born 7 weeks premature. She was 4lbs 6oz at birth. Presey stayed in the NICU for the first 7 weeks of life.
This is a book of hope.
