Krista’s son, Charlie was born at 29 weeks weighing 2 lbs. 14 oz. Charlie’s 40 day NICU stay was fairly smooth and the experience was relatively positive.
“Bringing Charlie home was scary despite him being our second; we felt like we were in no man’s land. Things I had never been worried about before were suddenly terrifying and it seemed as though no one understood what we were going through. Having the Parents of Preemies online support has been amazing. The simple idea that there are other parents who understand the unique challenges and joys of preemies and are open and willing to share with you has been an amazing support!”
