Connecticut Children's Medical Center NICU Celebration

Yesterday we spent a fun afternoon at the CCMC NICU Celebration. The event was held for families that had babies that were in the NICU and the 40th anniversary of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. As you probably already know, I had Caressa 8 weeks early. She spent two weeks in the CCMC NICU and received excellent care there. Thanks be to God, she was born healthy and strong and didn't have any complications. Those two weeks will always be a very special time for my whole family.

There were a lot of kids there. The wonderful thing was you couldn't tell the difference between the NICU kids and their siblings. All appeared to be healthy, normal and full of energy! They had face painting...

a bounce-house train...

pumpkins to decorate and LOTS and LOTS of food! A full spread of kid-friendly luncheon fair including chicken nuggets, little pizzas, french fries, etc., and a beautiful cake, ice cream sundae bar, smoothie bar and on and on... We had great fun! What a beautiful celebration of LIFE!

How wonderful! God is good! I bet it was just a blessing to see all the children running around and healthy.
My daughter was born eight weeks early and was also in the NICU and we have been to a few preemie reunions. It was so nice to see the parents happy and have their little ones healthy and running around.
