One tiny hand to
guide and hold,
One tiny life to shape and mold,
Each child, a gift
from God above,
A symbol of His strength
- Get hand and footprints or, even better, a casting of one of your baby's tiny hands or feet.
- Celebrate milestones-- hitting two pounds, going off a ventilator, moving to a crib, etc.
- Bond with at least one nurse... you're going to be there for awhile. It'll be much easier if you have a member of the medical team with whom you're very comfortable.
