I just found out about this and wanted to share. It really only applies to people in the Buffalo area…….but I thought maybe there would be something similar you could do at your local NICU/hospital. Check out this link to the story:
As you all know, my twins were 31-week preemies and spent some time (about a month) in the NICU at Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, NY. I am forever grateful to the people who work there and although it was the worst time in my life it was also the best outcome because of these wonderful people.
I know many of you out in the blogging world have had experiences of your own in the NICU, or know someone who has.
I know it’s last-minute, I know times are tough, and I know not all of you are from this area. But consider making an extra dozen cookies as you bake and make a simple donation/delivery. It’s a small thing that so many hurting families would be so grateful for.
Luckily, I myself was not in the NICU at Christmas. Luckily, I didn’t have other small children at home waiting for their mom to make cookies with them. Luckily, my children were not critically ill – just little. Luckily I have a strong network of friends and family who supported me.
Some people aren’t so lucky. Or maybe they are. Either way, a little bit of holiday cheer in the form of cookies might be just enough to brighten their holiday season a little bit.
I am so eternally grateful that I could spend last weekend making cookies with my little ones…..who are so healthy and happy because of my NICU family.
