There were some complications after my birth. And, I needed special care in the NICU. I was there for 5 weeks. My family stayed by my side

Thank You St. Barnabas NICU for the great care!

Sister Gale found me in the NICU one day...she picked me up to comfort me when I cried, held me close and rocked me to sleep, prayed with me and spent lots of time with me over the five weeks I was in the hospital
