I felt like I had a case of vertigo when I walked into the NICU three and a half
years ago. My son told me later that he will never forget the look on my face.
And God love all the nurses, doctors in NICU....they are magnificent!
For years, both my daughter and I have been prolife...active!
But it surely brought it home when daughter got preeclampsia...(& has recovered wonderfully!)...and delivered our Christmas miracle.
So tiny....yet so perfectly formed....and to think of the millions of babies aborted who weighed the same ......
Visiting a NICU is about enough to make anyone cry. My son was full term and big (almost 9 pounds) but has seizure disorder so he was sent to a NICU a few hours after he was born. There were 10 other babies there, only one other of which was full term (had hepatitis IIRC). The rest were all crack babies - tiny, premature, and with the most pitiful shivering and crying imaginable. The only other parent present was the lady with the full-term baby. I do not know where any of the other mothers were, but they may well have been incarcerated.
