Celebrating our 25th Anniversary has caused me to think about some of the preemie babies we have clothed over the years. One set of twins, Olivia and Noah, just left for college this Fall. They wore our preemie clothing way back – about 18 years ago. I have been lucky to follow their growth because of knowing their parents through a church connection. It is so awesome to see these "kids" thriving!
With these thoughts in mind, my daughter Melissa just shared a wonderful story about a NICU nurse who crosses paths with a former patient. How fun would that be? Merrily going about your normal work day, and then recognize the name of a new doctor only to find out he was your patient 28 years ago! You will enjoy taking the time to read this inspiring story.
