Yesterday morning when I was checking out at the grocery store, the cashier asked me if I wanted to make a donation to Children's Miracle Network. There are certain organizations that I always give to, and that is one of them. It happened yesterday that the twins were with me and it was an opportunity to share with them. I explained to them that Children's Miracle Network paid for some of the equipment they used when they were in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) as tiny babies. Because they helped our babies, we want to help other babies. It's just that simple. Before our NICU experience I never knew exactly what organizations such as CMN and March of Dimes do. I now know all too well, from first hand experience and would encourage you, if you are asked to donate, to consider doing so. They help give babies and children a good start in life.
This picture was taken in the NICU when the twins were just over 2 weeks old.
