"Our NICU Journey is a sweet NICU book for families to read to any child.  Whether or not you have a NICU baby, you can enjoy this story and your children will too.  Spreading awareness on NICU stays is very important and this is why I love this book.  I also love the literature, it rhymes!  Super cute book art to capture the attention of little eyes, short and sweet."

"As a fellow NICU parent seeing that someone took their struggles and made them into a supportive book is truly amazing! I am proud to have been given the option to read this book and will recommend to fellow NICU parents for years to come!"

Nicu Parent

Sarah Ward writes a charming and loving account of her premature twins' NICU stay. With rhyme and dignity, she reveals the depth and strength of their journey. This book is a blessing to all the families affected by premature birth and she brings strength and hope to them. The watercolor illustrations are a beautiful complement to the deeply emotional story. Written as a love poem to the children, Our NICU Journey will be treasured for years. The resources listed at the end of the book and the journaling pages will be most helpful to families experiencing this process. Kudos to Sarah Ward for her efforts to bring hope and strength to others!
