Sometimes there are periods in life when you feel alone. Experiences of hardship and difficulty can often lead you to this emotion, but I want to share with you no matter where you are in life you are not alone. Even if no one is there, God is with you and He will never leave you. This book was written to encourage parents and babies that you are not alone no matter what. I experienced a long 35 days in the NICU with my first daughter Elle McDonald and it was incredibly lonely and hard but when I focused on what God spoke to me, I learned I was not alone, and neither was Elle. My hope is that you are encouraged, and you can share that hope with your NICU baby.
