For siblings dealing with other special circumstances.
Having a sibling(s) in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) is difficult for many reasons. Often times an older sibling with a brother or sister in the NICU is not allowed to visit or meet their sibling until they come home (weeks or months later). Their parents have to juggle between being at home with their older child(ren) and being in the hospital with their newborn.
We want to recognize these children who have to wait patiently for their newborn baby sibling to come home from the NICU. We will send these referrals a physical gift to help occupy them and let them know that they are loved during this difficult time.
If you know a family or are a family who will have or currently has a baby in the NICU, please fill out our referral form. If you know a mother or are an expectant mother who has to spend extended time in the hospital for monitoring baby in utero and can't be home with your older children, please fill out the referral form.
