Care Packages

  
Each care package includes: 

Welcome to the World of the NICU: A parent's guide to parenting a Mighty Miracle
Welcome to the world of the neonatal intensive care unit, NICU for short. This is not a greeting that you ever anticipated or wanted to receive. NICU parents find their selves thrown into a brand new world filled with all sorts of new overwhelming terms, all new scary sounds, ominous looking machines, and emotional highs and lows that most have never before experienced. The World of the NICU is a two part book with Part I helping families transition and learn about the NICU. Our hope is that you can take comfort and learn from those that have been there before. Part II is designed to document baby’s progress for personal records and as a keepsake. Part II contains forms for the NICU and to help you stay organized for life after the NICU. These notes can forever serve as evidence of how strong your family and your mighty miracle were during this time. Congratulations on the birth of your own Mighty Miracle and welcome to the world of the NICU.

My NICU Home
Baby's first art collection is a little something to help decorate the baby's isolette/crib or room as the family works to personalize the space. These Mighty Miracles designs are laminated in heavy lamination to easily clean and sterilize. 

My NICU Family Tree
The NICU staff can become a big part of your life. The NICU Family Tree print is a nice print printed on cardstock for your NICU team to sign so you and your Mighty Miracle will remember this various special part of your family.

Miracle Apparel 
A Meet Our Miracle or Even Miracles Take A Little Time onesie or sleeper will be included in each care package. 

Surrounded By Love
This is another cardstock print to act as a keepsake. Mighty Miracles designed this guest print for families to have something for family and friends to sign when they visit.

NICU Graduation Certificate Keepsake
A NICU graduation certificate was designed by Mighty Miracles to give the family a keepsake when the discharge papers finally come. The certificate is designed with space for signatures from the baby's NICU family. 

A Children's Book
A children's book will be included for the family to read to the baby so that the child can be comforted as they listen to Mom and Dad's voices. 

Bonding Heart & Poem
First developed from The Preemie Project in Iowa. The fabric heart is worn against the mother’s skin so that the fabric might absorb the scent of the mother. The heart is placed with the baby in the isolette or crib so the mother is always with her child. The baby can be comforted by their mother's smell and mother's love, Hearts are accompanied by a poem. 

I Love a Mighty Miracle bracelet
Two rubber bracelets are included in each care package.

Possible other additions depending on donations and funds. Including  onesie, octopus, picture frame, miniature beanie baby or stuffed animal, magnets, sleepers, etc.

Request A Care Package

If you or someone you know has a baby in the NICU you can request a care package.

We work to provide care packages as inexpensive as possible. Each care package would retail for $100+.  Other than children's books, each item is a Mighty Miracle design. However, it still cost $36-50 to put together, depending on the book and onesie. If you are in the NICU please feel free to request a care package. We ask that you help us and donate what you can to help offset the cost of the package and shipping.   Anything  you can donate would be apprieciated. If its $10-20, okay. Any amount no matter how big or small is appreciated.  If you cannot afford to donate please do not hesitate to  request a care package and one will be sent as soon as funds allow.

Sponsor A Care Package

One of the methods of getting involved and helping Mighty Miracles is to sponsor a care package. The care package can be random or can be directed to someone you know going through the NICU journey. If sold seperately each care package would cost $100+. To sponsor a care package Mighty Miracles requests a donation of $40. When you donate please share in the notes section of PayPal please share a litle about yourself or company so we can include it in the Sponsored Card that will accompany your sponsored care package. You can also email adickinson@mightymiraclesfoundation,org so that your family's picture or company logo can be included as well.  If you would like it directed to someone specific please be sure to fill out a care package request.
