A Word From Our Founders
We hope to be a resource for families who are expecting a child that has been diagnosed with an illness or disability, for babies who currently are in the NICU and for those who have transitioned home and have a critical illness.
We have seen families’ lives turned upside down as they rise to the challenge of caring for a premature or sick newborn that must spend time in the NICU and PICU. We know first hand what it’s like to deal with the uncertainty associated with the prognosis of a child’s outcome.
Parents of babies and children who are critically-ill often face severe financial hardships, such as losing their homes and livelihoods. The overwhelming and traumatic experience of a threatened pregnancy or birth of a sick child can have long term emotional effects on a family.
So many friends, family members and strangers helped us in our time of need with gift cards to grocery stores and gas cards. They sat with us in silence in the hospital waiting room. They brought our family meals on nights when we were at the NICU holding vigil with our sick twins. And the greatest support we had, was the Power of Prayer. We feel a strong desire to help other families and give them the HOPE and SUPPORT that we received along our journey.
We know what it’s like to walk the hospital hallway alone. We know what it’s like to wonder about how you’re going to put gas in your car or how you’re going to buy groceries. We know, because WE are one of those families. From pregnancy to your NICU stay, to the transition home and hospital stays after that.... We don’t want you to go through it alone. We want to be there for you. And we want to help!!
Made For A Miracle is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization supported by volunteers and parents, some of whom are parents of premature and critically-ill born children themselves. There are a number of ways to help, whether it’s by volunteering your time or making a donation.
We are a faith based organization with strong family values. We hope you join us on our continued journey. And we hope to be a part of yours.
