As a NICU Mom that struggled through that journey I want to provide more for other Moms. The Small But Mighty book was made for NICU Moms to read to their babies in the NICU and will make a huge impact on those families.
When Riley arrived early at 32 weeks we were in shock and had no idea what the next weeks would look like. I spent most of my days sitting in the NICU room watching our tiny baby fight to get bigger and stronger. Those days were hard, isolating, unknown and scary. This was all new to me...how tiny she was, all of the wires and monitors, the rules about being able to touch and hold her and it was difficult to bond with her like I had with my other girls. Looking back, I would have appreciated this Small But Mighty book so much.
The author of the book is a NICU nurse in New York and was inspired to write the book to help families and specifically Moms bond with their little babies. Her mission is "Reading Small But Mighty helps to provide a sense of purpose for NICU moms. It lets them to play an important role in their baby’s long-term growth and development as they meet important milestones of prematurity."
I will never be able to thank the NICU team at Medical City Children's enough. They took such good care of Riley and me and I want to give back in any way I can. I would like to donate at least 20 books to the NICU dept so they can give the books to families watching their little ones fight every day.
I appreciate so much your donation of any amount to help buy these books and donate them in Riley's name to the Medical City Dallas NICU.
Thank you! xo
